Crockpot Beef Roast

Crockpot Beef Roast

This beef roast is not your “2 minute to fix” roast. However, your family will love it. It is not hard to fix, just more ingredients than the usual easy recipes. The little bit extra work involved with this Crockpot Beef Roast is definitely worth it as it is one of the tastiest I have fixed. This recipe calls for brisket, but I used a good quality chuck roast because I had one in the freezer.
