All Day Crock Pot Beef

Winter is coming fast and nothing beats a nice hot meal on a cold day but unfortunately a lot of people don't have the time to make a big meal so all this month, I'll post recipes that use 1 pot and can cook slowly all day.


  • 1-1/2 Lbs. beef roast

  • 1/2 Tsp. pepper

  • 2 Cloves garlic

  • 1/2 Env. onion soup mix

  • 2 Tsp. Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 Tsp. steak sauce (Heinz 57 is ideal)

  • 3 Carrots (diced)

  • 2 Ribs celery (diced)

  • 1 Green bell pepper (chopped)

  • 1 Yellow onion (cut into rings)

  • 1/2 Cup water

  • 1/2 Cup tomato juice

Cut beef into serving sized portions. Use more beef if you need more than 6 servings. Brown beef in a bit of oil. Place the vegetables into bottom of Crock Pot. Sprinkle the beef pieces with fresh ground black pepper, minced garlic and the onion soup mix. Place on top of the vegetables. Mix the steak sauce and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl with about 1/2 cup water and 1/2- cup tomato juice. Pour this over the meat. Turn to low, cover and cook for 7-9 hours. When ready to serve, ladle meat and vegetables out of pot with a slotted spoon. Use the liquid as is or turn Crock Pot to high and thicken liquid with a little flour or cornstarch.

NOTE: Keep the Crock Pot covered as much as possible throughout cooking time. A Crock Pot can be used to cook this type of meal for a varied amount of time, depending on your schedule. It is not important that you take the meat and vegetables out at a specific amount of time. One or two hours either way usually makes no difference.
