Crock Pot Roast Beef

I realize after taking these pictures I need new props J

So this last week it’s been a little chili, I mean really it’s been 75-80 degrees but to mean that’s WAY cooler than the 110 degree weather we’ve been having! I was craving something easy and something that I love cooking in the fall. I really wanted to make a nice healthy slow cooker recipe. So I put my thinking cap on and did it!

Chris and I don’t eat beef that much, mostly because we prefer turkey and chicken more but once in a while we like it for something different. Also, my mom and dad get a cow every year (grass fed) to eat on all year and she’s trying to make room for another cow they are getting in October so she sent us home so a few things of beef. She gave us this amazing looking roast I couldn’t wait to make. And since it’s been somewhat cooler weather I made us a healthy slow-cooker roast last night. It was UH-MAZING! Even the hubs loved it and he’s not much of a roast fan! I know you’re going to love this one, it’s super easy just 10 minutes the night before then you throw (not literallyJ) in your crock pot and let it cook while you at work and trying to get back into the grove of things with a new school year arriving!

  1. That roast looks super tender. Must have been delicious! YUM!

  2. Hey Keyona! Saw you at Melissa's blog and wanted to say hi! I'm lovin your entries and your motivation for healthier living! Good for you, love! :) This roast looks absolutely delicious! I've gotta jot down these recipes! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. Looks so moist! I don't know what I'd do without my slow cooker.

  4. It looks like it falls off the bone...so tender. I found this while searching grass fed roast recipes since I'm serving my family more meat now that I've learned about grass fed beef. This looks like a great recipe. Thank you.

  5. When you put the pot roast in the crock pot do you add any liquid? Like water or beef broth?
