Slow Cooker Roast Beef

The method for this Slow Cooker Roast Beef is super simple, and yields tasty, tender meat.

Tip: After enjoying your slow cooker roast beef, use the leftover meat to make this delicious Paleo Beef & Veggie Soup with Sweet Potato.  In fact, for my family of five, I often prepare two roasts in order to have plenty of leftovers for soup.

Feel free to use your favorite seasoning salt.  My top picks include two simple homemade seasoning blends:

  1. Homemade Herbamare
  2. Easy Seasoning Salt with Essential Oils

And don’t skip the searing step!  I’ve found this to be key for tender meat bursting with flavor.

    We loved it! I was worried that 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar was too much, but it was delicious. Also, I used the instant pot with this recipe. Thanks!
