  • 1 (2 1/2 pound) boneless beef chuck roast

  • 1 pinch garlic salt, or to taste

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

  • ½ (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch, or as needed


  1. Rub beef roast with garlic salt and black pepper. Place roast in the bottom of a slow cooker.

  2. Mix together Worcestershire, soy sauce, and red wine vinegar in a small bowl; pour over roast. Sprinkle onion soup mix over roast. Pour water into the slow cooker around roast, not over the top.
