Making this Slow Cooker Roast Beef can make an easy weeknight meal seem like Sunday dinner. This is a really easy roast beef recipe that results in a moist beef roast with a no-fuss gravy.
Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cooking Time: 8-9 hours
1 (2.5 - 3 pound) beef roast (i.e. eye of round)
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 cups beef broth
Combine the flour, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper in a large zip style bag. Add the roast to the bag and shake so that the roast is covered with the flour mixture.
Heat the olive oil over medium-low heat in a large non-stick skillet. Place the flour covered roast in the skillet, leaving the remaining flour in the bag (don't discard the bag yet!)
Brown the roast 3-4 minutes per side over med-low heat.
Place browned roast in a slow cooker. Add the onions to the skillet and saute for several minutes. Add the remaining flour in the bag into the skillet with the onions. Stir well until the flour is no longer white and is mixed well with the oil left in the pan. Add the broth and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 1-2 minutes until thickened. Pour this gravy over the meat.
Cook on low heat in a slow cooker, 8-9 hours
