Quick & Easy Delicious Roast Beef with Smart Pot Crock-Pot®

IMG_4391

I love to cook and when a few of my friends found out that I never owned a slow-cooker, there was some disbelief. What? It’s every mom’s best friend! Why does everyone keep saying that? Is it really that awesome?

When I received a brand new Smart Pot Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker to review, you would have thought I received a pair of new louboutins — I was thrilled and ready to start slow-cooking! I wouldn’t have picked any other to try out but the veteran of slow-cookers, the original Crock-Pot®.

One of the dishes that my family enjoys on Sunday’s and especially perfect for cold, winter months is a nice juicy roast beef.  As you know, in order for beef to be perfectly cooked and tender, it must be cooked at a low-medium heat for a very long time. This was the perfect dish to try out as my first official Crock-pot meal!  My family loves this recipe that I have been making the old-fashioned way for the longest time; I was keen to see how making this in a slow-cooker would differ.

I love how easy this Crock-Pot is to use. It offers basic yet adequate settings: High on either 4 or 6 hours or Low on either 8 or 10 hours and the warming button. Once your dish is cooked according to the amount of hours you selected, it automatically switches to the warming button which I love.

Another great feature is it comes with the removable stoneware that easily comes out and ready to serve plus it’s super easy to clean with the stick-resisting coating. I am in love! And I finally understand why everyone tells me it’s a must-have! This Smart Pot Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker is a winner. 

The roast beef turned out so tender after cooking for 8-9 hours on low that it just fell apart with a slight touch of the fork. Blended with the gravy and veggies (I found the veggies didn’t even get soggy – perfectly cooked!) and mashed potatoes and you’ve got a dish that will be sure to satisfy the pickiest eater! Bon appétit!

    Hi!
    I have this in the crockpot right now, but I am noticing that mine looks nothing like your pictures! Yours seems to have WAY more liquid than mine does… Any suggestions? I’ve never cooked a roast before…probably shouldn’t have tried a new recipe when we are having guests!!

    I accessed this recipe again today because I’m heading to the grocery store later and needed to find out what the right type of beef was to purchase.

    I make a similar recipe and love it! It is one of my favourite ways to cook a roast. I don’t usually do the veggies in there too so I will have to try that out.
