Did you know it is possible to cook perfectly sliceable and tender roast beef in the crock-pot? (In just a couple of hours?!) I’ve been using my crockpot to cook fall-apart tender shredded roasts for years, as proven by two of our favorite roast beef recipes. However, it never before crossed my mind to try a method like this.
I originally planned to cook this roast using my favorite oven method. However, at the last moment, I decided to try improvising that method for the crockpot. It worked great and the roast was a huge hit. We like our beef closer to rare than well and usually closer to rare than medium. If you prefer yours a bit less pink, adjust the cooking time and final temperature accordingly.
I served the roast with roasted potatoes and roasted broccoli and the whole family gave the meal great reviews. I served the remaining beef with soft rolls for roast beef sandwiches a couple nights later. It was delicious both ways. The only trick to this meal is slicing the meat as thinly as possible.
