Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • I like to sear my meat to add even more flavor. If you choose to do this you will add olive oil to your pan and sear each of the sides of the meat until browned. Once this is done, add it to your slow cooker along with all the other ingredients. 
  • As long as your crockpot is big enough, you can add in more carrots and potatoes if you prefer. 
  • The liquid the roast cooks in is so flavorful. It makes for the perfect gravy. Serve as is or mix in a cornstarch and water paste to thicken it within the last 30 minutes of cooking. 
  • Be sure to check your meat’s temperature prior to removing it from your slow cooker. The internal temperature needs to be at least 131 degrees Fahrenheit for medium-rare.  Medium well is 149 Fahrenheit degrees and well done is 158 degrees Fahrenheit.
