Crock-Pot Beef Roast

First let me apologize that I forgot to take a picture of this.  Second, this dish is a staple in my house and my extremely picky 7 year old claims this as her favorite dish!

  • 3 to 4 lb. beef roast (any variety)
  • 1/2 cup homemade onion soup mix (recipe to follow)
  • 1/4 ground flaxseed
  • 4 medium potatoes, cubed
  • 1 cup baby carrots or carrots cut into larger size chunks
  • 2 stalks celery, large dice
Make It:
  1. Place all ingredients in crock pot and cover with water, enough to barely cover.  
  2. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  3. If you want gravy you can place the cooking liquid in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Then stir in a small amount of cornstarch slurry (water with a little corn starch stirred in).  Reduce heat and simmer until desired thickness.
Onion Soup Mix
Combine the following ingredients in an air tight container.
  • 2/3 dry onions
  • 1 T onion powder
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. sugar
  • 1 t. dry garlic or garlic powder
  • 1 t. dried parsley
