Crockpotty Goodness

I used my crock pot for the first time in a long time yesterday and it rocked! I found a simple recipe for “Roast Beef” online (beef and two cans of soup) and finagled it my way. Here is what I came up with:


1 3lb rump roast (or similar)
2 Tblsp olive oil
4 carrots, peeled, trimmed and cut into 2 or 3 pieces
4 stalks celery, peeled, trimmed and cut into 2 or 3 pieces
1 medium onion, peeled, trimmed and cut into 1/8’s
splash of wine (white or red, doesn’t matter)
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 can condensed beef broth
coarse salt and ground pepper

Brown the meat in a large pot or saute pan with plenty of salt and pepper, approx 4 minutes on each side. Remove it and set aside. Add vegetables and splash of wine and saute to release the brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Stir vegetables to coat completely. Add vegetables to crock pot (I used the 4 qt bowl) and place the roast on top. Whisk together the two cans of soup without adding any water and once completely combined pour it over the meat and veggies in the crock pot. Cover and cook on low for approx 6 hours. Once the time is up, remove and slice the beef. You can make a nice gravy with the liquid in the pot or just use it as is. I served mine with mashed potatoes.

Mmmmmm Beef-O-Matic!!
