What cut of beef is the most tender for roast?
Chuck roast – either boneless or bone-in. The boneless will be more expensive. The bone-in less expensive but will have even more flavor from the bone. They are also called Top-Blade or Chuck 7-Bone Roast.
Top Loin, Bottom or Top Round are also good choices. Brisket offers big beefy flavor also.
How do you choose the best beef?
That’s a great question! We don’t eat a whole lot of roasts in our home and because I don’t shop for it very often, I will call my folks often even face-timing my Mom so she can help me pick out good meat – true story! But here’s what I’ve learned over time.
- when possible choose organic grass-fed beef
- shop from a local butcher or meat market
- marbling is good!
Do you have to brown a roast before putting it in the crockpot?
Have you heard the phrase brown food tastes good? Brown equals flavor and if you have the opportunity to brown a roast prior to putting it in the slow cooker great! With this recipe it’s just not necessary! Even better, right?!!!
How long do I cook roast beef in a slow cooker?
- Cook on high for eight hours.
How to make Easy Slow Cooker Roast Beef Recipe
