Sliced Tender Slow Cooker Rosemary Roast

There is nothing as great as coming home to a meal ready to eat!  This amazing roast cooks up in the slow cooker all day!  The result is the most tender roast with a delicious and flavorful gravy!

We’ve eaten this with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies but it is also amazing sliced thinly and eaten as a beef dip!  Either way, you’ll love how this simple dish can taste so amazing!

  • Cook on low 8-10 hours or until tender. Remove roast and let sit 15 minutes before cutting.
  • Strain juices from slow cooker to remove rosemary/onions. Skim any fat from the top.
  • Pour into a saucepan over medium high heat and bring to a boil. In a small glass make a slurry of 3 tablespoons cornstarch and 1/2 cup COLD water or beef broth.
  • With the broth boiling, add some of the slurry mixture while constantly stirring. Once gravy has reached desired consistency, season with salt/pepper to taste and let bubble gently for 2 minutes.
