Bear N Mom Recipes - Crock Pot Oriental Beef Roast

5 stars from 1 rating of Crock Pot Beef Roast

My son is particularly fond of beef and broccoli that he gets from the Chinese Restaurant on Butler Steet in Lawrenceville. A few years back he bought me a new crock pot for Christmas, I have been experimenting with recipes that I've seen online and added my own flair to them. This one is a mix between a standard pot roast and an oriental recipe. The addition of the broccoli adds that little extra zing as well as the mixture of the gravy mixture that is poured over the roast to give it that added flavor.

Ingredients

  • 2 lb . Chuck Shoulder Roast
  • 1 pkg. McCormick Brown Gravy

  • 1 serving Motts Applesauce
  • 2 cups Water

  • 1 small onion

  1. Brown your roast on all sides in a tablespoon of cooking oil until all sides are browned.
  2. Place the roast into the crock pot with chopped onion and celery.
  3. Peel and chop potatoes and add around roast. If you please you can omit the potatoes and make mashed potatoes on the side to pour some of the sauce and broccoli over.
  4. Mix together onion and mushroom soup mix, brown gravy packet, applesauce and the Worcestershire Sauce in the water and then pour over the roast.

Alternatives

Instead of potatoes you can serve this over rice. For that true oriental taste you can substitute Soy Sauce for the Worcestershire Sauce. The addition of some bamboo shoots and water chestnuts would also add to the flavor. This is another one of those "try it -- You'll like it" recipes that you can't ruin by adding something new to the recipe.
