I love a good roast. It's perfect crock pot food. Perfect for cold days.
I added sweet potatoes to this. I think they have more flavor than regular potatoes and they are pretty too!
Sweet & Savory Roast Recipe
Adapted from A Year of Slow Cooking
3 pounds beef rump or chuck roast
2 onions, sliced in rings
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup ketchup
2 cups beef broth
2 cups baby carrots
4 baked potatoes, cut into chunks
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
Use a 6-quart slow cooker. Put the roast into the bottom of your pot, and add onion slices, separated into rings. Pour in brown sugar, vinegar, and ketchup. Toss in carrots and potatoes. Pour broth evenly over the top. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or until the meat has reached desired tenderness. I wait about 2 hours later before adding the sweet potatoes as they cook quicker.
If you find your meat isn't quite as tender as you'd like before serving, remove it from the pot, cut it into a few pieces, then return to the crock, and cook on high for about an hour. Tough and/or dry meat isn't from over slow cooking--it's from under slow cooking!
