Slow Cooker Roast Beef in its own Gravy

Heather Dunn

"This is my go-to recipe for pot roast on a busy weekday. It uses inexpensive cuts of meat, made posh by the slow cooker. After years of tweaking others' recipes, I think I found a good mix of high-quality pot roast while still being very quick and easy."

Heather Dunn, you've out Dunn your self on this one ;). I used a beef tenderloin roast on this occasion. I let it simmer on low for 9 hrs. The tenderloin was so juicy and and the juices rocked....

The meat and gravy were so yummy! Nobody in our family cared for the potatoes. Next time, we will try leaving the potatoes out and make mashed potatoes instead.

My family really enjoyed this. I used russet potatoes since I did not have any red on hand. Also substituted beef seasoning with Penzey's Quebec seasoning. Would definitely make this again!

The only changes that I made was to add 2 small onions and used Baby yellow Dutch potatoes instead of the red potatoes. It was delicious and I have enough to have another meal for the two of us.
