This recipe of the week comes from Janelle from
She writes:  This is a recipe my mom always made for me as a child…now, I make it for my family!  If you like garlic as much as I do, you will love the way it is added into the meat to carry out its delicious flavor. Serve with dinner rolls for dipping and a nice garden salad… it will be wonderful. 
Start out with a roasting meat of your choice…  you can use chuck, top/ bottom round, or rump.  I suggest purchasing 1 lb per 2 servings. I have a 3 lb roast in this photo.

1 large can of beef broth, olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper.

I use 1 head of garlic in my roast but have 2 here to show you what it looks like when I prepare it. I peel the outside layers off like so…
And break the cloves apart and peel the outside layer of the cloves off…
Then cut into quarters
With a sharp knife cut slices into the meat (about an inch through)

Fill the holes in the meat with the quarters of garlic on all sides.
Place olive oil in a large pan and heat to medium/high heat. Brown all sides of the roast and season with salt and pepper. This will only cook the meat 1/4 of an inch through, but it adds a delicious flavor!
Place your roast into a Crock Pot (you can also do this on a stove in a large pot).  Season with Worcestershire sauce.
Pour 1 large can of beef broth over top
Prepare your veggies… I have here potatoes cut in halves, onions cut in quarters and baby carrots.
Simply place all your veggies on top of the meat, if the broth does not cover everything you may add water.

Cover and cook on high for 6 hours in the Crock Pot. If you are cooking stovetop, place on a medium heat.
When your roast is done the veggies will be tender and the roast will flake apart… Mmmm!

    1. Giant Eagle often puts them on BOGO. I bought 2 with this sale yesterday. You might not have Giant Eagle in your area though.

  1. YAY for perfect timing! I have a bottom round thawing right now that I was planning on cooking tomorrow, and I was going to look around for a good crockpot recipe to use it. This is perfect and sounds delicious!! Thank you!

    1. I need crock pot help. When using it how high should my liquid be. Should I cover the food completely? I need crock

  2. I am making this right now! I was planning on making my roast in the crockpot the way I usually do and then I came upon this recipe first thing this morning and decided to try your method! I have laways heard people say to brown the meat before putting it in the crockpot but I had never tried it before. I did add some Lipton beefy onion soup mix to it. It smells delicious!

  3. Wow! My mouth is watering just looking at the plate of potatoes, carrots and roast. I will have to make this recipe…Thank you for sharing 🙂

    Many Blessings!

  4. This sounds delicious! I’ve only made pot roast once in the oven. I really like the idea of cooking it in the crock pot instead. I can imagine that the garlic adds amazing flavor to this dish. I will definitely have to give this a try the next time we have company over for dinner!

  5. hi courtney.
    a reply to your previous post.i i looked at that blog scary mom and read a couple of the posts.
    i love to laugh and i a long with many friends make light of motherhood and marraige when the going is tough….if you cant poke fun at yourself then ..there must be something wrong.but these posts and the titles were were rude, raw and full of anger (in the mind).the comments posted also were .i am sure she is a great mom and wife but .after reading it i just felt like i had stood around gossiping complaining and felt “not good” (to be nice)….jesus just needs to be introduced not defended…..and if they say “oh get a life” remember we do… Eternal Life..keep up the good work of exhorting and encouraging and being “real” in a positive way…dont waste your god given talents and abilities and your holy ghost energy entertaing such negative time wasters..your wonderful.
    god bless

  6. I made this last night & it was delicious! My husband had a late shift at the hospital, and didn’t get home till 2am, so it was perfect for him because it stayed nice and warm & ready to eat in the crock pot!

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Yummy! Found this on Pinterest, and just started it! It already smells great! I know my husband will love it, as his main dinner request that it have meat in it. haha

  8. It’s also good with green pepper and celery with carrots, potatoes, onions…gives a little more added flavor! 🙂

  9. Today I am making this recipe for a second time. It was amazing and incredibly simple! Instead of using regular russet potatoes I chose to use red and just added a few of my own seasonings. My whole family enjoyed it even our two year old!

  10. Hi! I’ve this AMAZING roast a few times now but I need for my roast to cook longer bc I’ll be at work(usually cook on a Sunday), can I cook on low for 8 hours ? Thanks!!

  11. Do you know what the exact ounces/cups of beef broth were? This looks yummy planning to make this week! Thanks!
