Brens’ Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe
This recipe is one of my favorites especially on a cool day I am working in the garden. It is so nice to walk in the house after working in the garden and smell this amazing recipe cooking away. Be sure to take advantage of the printable recipe option.
2.5 pound rump roast
1 cup of flour
1 teaspoon of ground pepper
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup water
3 large carrots cut into big chunks
1 medium onion - sliced
2 cups of sliced fresh baby portobella mushrooms
3 cloves of garlic diced
In large skillet brown up 2 tablespoons of butter or 1 tablespoon of olive oil
Mix flour, salt, pepper, garlic salt - carefully cover the beef roast by flipping the meat in the mix.
After covering the beef discard the flour mix.
Add diced onion and mushroom to the slow cooker.
Once all sides of the roast are brown in skillet carefully put the drippings and roast into the slow cooker.
Add 1/2 cup of beef broth to slow cooker.
Cook the roast on High for about 4 hours before adding the carrots and potatoes to the slow cooker. You can add the vegetables with the roast if you are unable to add them 1/2 way through cooking time.
Roast should fall apart with a fork when it is fully cooked. 2.5 roast usually takes about 6 hours to cook on high. You can also cook on medium for about 8 hours.

This recipe also works great in an instant pot. You can use the slow cook option on that appliance. When using the instant pot you can brown the roast in the instant pot before adding all the ingredients and programming the device to slow cooker. After getting an instant pot my slow cooker hardly gets used for roast any more.
