  • 1 envelope Italian dressing seasoning about 7 tsp
  • minced garlic to taste

  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups beef broth


  • Slice 1-2 onions into quarters. Place on bottom of slow cooker. Place roast on top.

  • Pour just enough beef broth to cover half way up the side of the roast.
  • Cook 8-10 hours on low, turning over half way through.
  • Place roast on cutting board once done. Slice thinly against the grain and serve.


If using a Dutch oven, simply follow our recipe and set oven to 275 degrees. Cook for 4 hours and flip the roast over once.
