slow cooker tuesday – better than mom’s pot roast


‘Tis the season for stews and pot roast! Today that sounds fantastic. This morning I put a bison roast in my slow cooker, and this is the recipe I used!

Better-Than-Mom’s Pot Roast
Prevention Best of Slow Cooker Recipes

4-5 lbs beef bottom round or rump roast (I used bison rump)
1 Tbsp olive oil (I used olive oil cooking spray)
2 cups beef broth
2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup cider vinegar
2 onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 Tbsp brown sugar
5 carrots, chopped
5 ribs celery, chopped

Rub roast with oil (or spray each side like I did). Brown under broiler on both sides. Stir broth, ketchup, cider vinegar, onions, garlic, and brown sugar in a 4-quart or larger slow cooker. Add roast, carrots, and celery. Cover. Cook on low 8 hours, or until meat is tender. Slice roast and serve with vegetables and sauce from cooker.

I added some potatoes to it as well. I also used low sodium beef broth instead of regular. Can’t wait to walk into the house later! Please share your favorite, healthier roast and stew recipes with me. I would love to share them with our fellow RunHers!

Live. Life. Beautifully.
