All Day Crock Pot Beef


1-1/2 lbs. beef roast (browned)
1/2 t. pepper
2 cloves garlic
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. steak sauce
3 carrots, chopped
2 celery, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow onion, cut into rings (I use white)
1/2 c water
1/2 c tomato juice

Use more beef if you need more than 6 servings (or I make extra for other meals planned).

Brown beef on both sides in a bit of oil.

Place the vegetables into bottom of crockpot.

Place beef on top of the vegetables. Sprinkle with fresh ground black pepper, minced garlic.

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, removed roast and veggies.

Use the liquid as is or turn crockpot to high and thicken liquid with a little flour or cornstarch for gravy. I use Gold Medal's Wondra Quick-Mixing Flou, my favorite spices and my immersion blender.

NOTE: Keep the crockpot covered as much as possible throughout cooking time. A crockpot 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.
