Description

A crock pot recipe that actually tastes good! Sweet, tangy, rich, and so simple. The meat just shreds effortlessly after cooking all day. Serve with mashed potatoes and fall in love.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (14.5 Oz. Can) Beef Broth
  • 1 container (20 Oz. Container) Ketchup
  • ¼ cups Packed Brown Sugar
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 3 pounds Beef Round Rump Roast
  • Olive Oil, To Rub On Beef
  • 16 ounces, weight Baby Carrots
  • 1 whole Large Onion, Cut Into 1” Pieces

Preparation

In a medium bowl, whisk together the broth, ketchup, brown sugar, and garlic.

Rub the beef all over with a little olive oil. In a large sauté pan, over medium high, brown the beef for about 2 minutes per side.

In a 4-quart (or larger) slow cooker, place the browned beef, carrots, and onions. Pour ketchup mixture over the top. Cook on low for 8 hours.

Slice or shred the meat and serve with the veggies and sauce, over mashed potatoes (optional).

@rivergirl10 – I’ve had little success with slow cooker recipes in general. But love my pot roast. I hope you try it!

I’ve never had any success cooking a roast in the crock pot. This sounds like a good recipe to give it another try.

I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. I didn’t realize I was out of beef stock until I was ready to start this. I searched for a substitute on the internet and one tablespoon of soy sauce mixed into one cup of water was the solution. I don’t know how the original recipe should taste but my last minute change came out wonderful so I can only imagine how yummy it will be next time I make it (with beef stock). Thank you! My hubby and I are happy campers :)

This was so good! Even my husband, who hates pot roast, loved it! Can’t wait to make it again! I added potatoes, carrots, celery and onion to the pot just to use them up.

Excellent! I have been looking for an easy but delicious roast and this is it. I put it in the crockpot in the morning before church and came home to my house smelling wonderful. This is a keeper and my new go to recipe for pot roast. Thanks.

Absolutely delicious! And sooo easy! I had this in my ever expanding “recipes to try” folder and finally pulled it out to cook yesterday. I put it in the crockpot yesterday morning, and cooked stuff to send to the funeral home yesterday evening so it worked out perfectly. I only had red potatoes, though, and I had bought them specifically to make crash hot potatoes, so that’s what I did (didn’t add them to the crockpot with everything else). I also used regular carrots instead if baby carrots because that’s what I had. The roast and carrots were both delicious! The only thing I might do differently next time is add just a pinch of cayenne or red pepper.

Made this yesterday and it was easy and delicious! I only added one thing which was worcestershire sauce. Thanks Amy for this delish recipe!
