Ingredients

  • 3 lbs boneless beef cross rib pot roasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 carrots sliced
  • 2 celery stalks sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 cups button mushrooms quartered
  • 1/3 cup sodium-reduced beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Method

Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. In large skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown beef all over, adding more oil if necessary. Transfer to slow cooker.

Discard any fat from pan; add remaining oil. Cook onion, carrots, celery, garlic, marjoram and oregano over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Scrape into slow cooker.

Stir in stock, scraping up brown bits; boil for 1 minute and pour into slow cooker. Add tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce; cover and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours or until beef is tender.

Transfer meat to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 15 minutes before thinly slicing across the grain.

Meanwhile, whisk flour with 1/4 cup (50 mL) water; whisk into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for about 15 minutes or until thickened. Serve with beef.
