This is a roast cooked in a slow cooker low and slow all day. It has a slight onion flavor and can be eaten with the gravy or used for sandwiches or shredded beef tacos.
It's super easy, so tasty, moist and tender!
3-1/2 pound roast (any type will work - arm, chuck, rump or pikes peak)
1 package dry onion soup mix (Lipton or the store brand is fine)
1 cup water
1 to 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 to 2 Tablespoons water
Make the Roast!
Place the roast in the slow cooker and sprinkle the dry onion soup mix over the top. Pour the water over the roast. I always tilt the roast a bit just to make sure the liquid gets under the roast.
Cook the roast on the Low setting for approximately 10 hours. I start mine at 8am and when I get home from work at 6:30 pm, it is tender and delicious.
Skim any fat from the top of the slow cooker, then remove the roast. Pour the liquid into a saucepan on the stove. Mix the cornstarch with a little bit of water to make a smooth slurry (this will make the gravy nice and smooth). Add the cornstarch/water mixture to the roast juices and bring to a boil. Boil for about 2 - 4 minutes stirring with a whisk. The gravy will thicken up and be ready to pour on top of the roast. If you like it thicker, add more cornstarch/water mixture.
