Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Roast Beef was a typical Sunday Supper for my family when I was growing up. My grandmother would cook it in a roasting pan in the oven for hours until it was fall apart tender – and the only seasoning she ever used was salt and pepper.

There are few things that cook better than pot roast in the slow cooker. The long cooking time, slow cooking, and submersion in flavor pack a powerful punch. My Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe is full of flavor, but still tastes like traditional Sunday Supper Pot Roast.

I didn’t come up with this recipe on my own – but I had a college friend who always swore by this, and I picked it up from her. I have since seen it all over the internet in various forms, so shout out to Michelle for feeding me this on many a weekend on those cool winter weekends in College Station.

Toss your roast into your slow cooker. Sprinkle the top with your ranch dressing packet, and put the banana peppers on top. I pour about 2 tablespoons of the banana pepper liquid into the crock pot for an extra kick of flavor, but that’s up to you. Pour in your beef stock and add your worcestershire sauce. Allow to cook for 6 hours on low or until meat is tender and cooked through.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Joy! I’m not a huge slow cooker fan, so I’m always on the look out for a great slow cooker recipe! You’ll have to let me know if you have any awesome ones I should try.

  1. I used to not be all that into meat. Could have (almost) been a vegetarian. Once I was pregnant with my son…forget it! Thirteen years later I still crave meat. Especially beef, and pot roast is one of my favorites. I’ve never seen it made this way before–looks good. Oh, and leftovers turned into sandwiches…yum! Thanks for sharing!

    1. That’s funn, Michelle! Pregnancy does such weird things to us. I got turned off of chicken when I was pregnant, and it has taken me a loooooong time to get back on the chicken wagon. Even now I don’t like gigantic chicken breasts. I prefer my chicken in pieces or tenderloins. So random!
