Best Ever Slow Cooker Italian Beef Roast
December 19, 2012

This is a great slow cooker recipe for beef. But please, do NOT add salt to this dish. Between the beef broth (even if low sodium), the au jus mix and the italian seasoning mix, you will have more than enough sodium in this recipe. I use a 6 quart slow cooker (another reviewer asked what size to use) and I do sear my roast in pan prior to putting in the slow cooker. Then I saute the onion and a few minced cloves of garlic in the pan, deglaze with the beef broth and pour all over the roast. Scrumptious!! And no, your roast will not look like the picture that accompanies this recipe. That roast was NOT made in a slow cooker and it isn't even a chuck roast. Why it accompanies this recipe is a mystery.
