From the Kitchen - Outside the Nest

Herbed Beef Roast
I'm not a big fan of beef roast, but I've found a good recipe that makes a tasty entree. Even the leftovers are good.

I start with a nice chunk of beef, like a eye of round or bottom round roast. 

I assemble the wet ingredients,

then the dry.

I use my 6-cup crock pot, where I add water and the broth bases.

After pouring the wet mixture over the meat and sprinkling on the herb mixture, I place the meat in the crock pot and pour the run-off into the bottom. I don't want to waste any.
Very tasty.

 In my small crock pot, it takes about 4-5 hours on low, and then it's done. The house smells delicious.
Slice the meat, top with gravy, eat it all gone.
Even the toughest cuts will turn out nice and tender. And tasty.
Is it ever good.
Happy Saturday
