Finding Thyme to Cook

Thyme is of the Essence

Slow Cooking Pot Roast

Slow Cooking Pot Roast

Adapted from Williams Sonoma

Now that I am an “expert” in Slow Cookers, here is my 2nd attempt!!!  There is not too much that is more comforting than a tender flavorful piece of roast with onions, carrots and potatoes rounding it out.  Not too much to say about it, except what’s easier than putting everything in a big pot in the morning and 6 hours later, you have a delicious dinner with not too much to clean up.

  • 1 yellow onion – finely chopped
  • 4 carrots – peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds red potatoes – cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 garlic clove – crushed
  • 3 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 beef rump roast – 3-4 pounds
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon oil

Prepare onion, carrots, potatoes  and. . .

add to slow cooker with stock, tomato sauce, garlic, thyme and bay leaf.

Stir to combine.

Season roast with salt and pepper.

Put flour in large blow and coat roast and toss to coat evenly.

Heat oil in large saute pan over medium-high heat until almost smoking.

Add roast and brown on all sides – about 5 minutes total.

Transfer to slow cooker, cover and cook on high for 6 hours.

Transfer roast to carving board and . . .

cover loosely with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.

Slice the meat and spoon sauce and vegetables on top.

Serves 4-6
