Ingredients
  • 1 (about 3 pound) chuck roast
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 cups beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons- 1 tablespoon beef bouillon (I like better than bouillon brand)
  • 6 whole carrots; peeled and cut into large chunks or 2 cups baby carrots
  • 2 pounds potatoes; washed, peeled (optional) and cut into large chunks
  • GRAVY
  • 2 cups beef broth (from the crockpot)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
Instructions
  1. Place roast in the bottom of a 6 quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour in broth and add in bouillon. Stir to mix in. Place carrots and potatoes around the roast. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours. **I don't recommend cooking on high**
  2. To make gravy, remove 2 cups of beef broth from the slow cooker and set aside. In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium low heat. Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes stirring constantly. Slowly pour and whisk in the reserved beef broth. Simmer while stirring until thickened. If the gravy is too thick stir in a little more broth.
