  • 2 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • All-purpose flour, as needed
  • Approx 5 pounds of 7-bone beef pot roast


  • 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms
  • onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • 1½ tbsp of flour
  • 1 tbsp of tomato paste
  • 2½ cups of chicken broth


  • carrots, cut into chunks
  • 2 ribs of celery, cut into chunks
  • A few sprigs of rosemary and thyme


Step 1

Season the meat with salt and pepper on both sides, then coat it with some flour, pat it down, and shake off the excess. Place a large skillet pan on a stove over medium-high heat, then add the oil, and heat it before placing the seasoned beef. Sear it well on both sides until nice and brown, then remove it to a plate, and set it aside.

Step 2

In the same pan, add the mushrooms and butter, and saute them over medium heat for about 3 to 4 minutes or until nice and brown. Add the onions, then toss and saute until softened before adding the garlic, and cook them for another minute.

Step 3

Add some flour, then stir, add the tomato paste, and pour in the beef broth. Give them a good stir, then bring them to a simmer until thickened, and turn off the heat. In the pot of a slow cooker, add the veggies at the bottom, then place the cooked beef on top, and top them with sprigs of rosemary and thyme.

Step 4

Pour in the sauce spreading the onions and mushroom evenly on top, then cover the pot with the lid, and let them cook on a high setting for about 5 to 6 hours or on a low setting for about 8 to 10 hours. Skim any fat that comes to the top, then once the meat is fork tender, discard the bones, and serve the pot roast. Enjoy!
