Slow Cooker Roast Beef
The best, tender, easy slow cooker roast beef recipe, homemade with simple ingredients. It can be thinly sliced for sandwiches.
- 4.5-5 pounds Chuck roast
- Salt, To taste
- Pepper , To taste
- 3 cloves Garlic, Finely minced
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/4 tsp Red chili flakes, Optional
- 1 tbsp Butter, Melted
- 1 tbsp Oil
Season the chuck roast with the salt, pepper, garlic, Italian seasoning, red chili flakes.
Heat butter and oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat.
Sear the meat on each side until lightly browned.
Transfer roast and drippings to slow cooker.
Cover and cook on Low heat for 90 minutes. The timing may vary on the brand of your crockpot. The best thing to do is to set an alarm on your meat thermometer and wait till it beeps at the correct temperature of doneness.
Check the temperature with a meat thermometer. For medium rare, it should read 135 degrees F and for medium, it should read 140 degrees F. I prefer medium doneness.
Remove roast from crockpot and place it on a cutting board or serving dish.
Cover with aluminum foil paper.
Let the meat rest 20 minutes.
Then, use a sharp knife to cut slices. Be sure to cut against the grain of the meat for very thin slices, which are great for sandwiches. Enjoy!
