  • Spread onion and peppers over and around roast. Pour broth around roast. Cover with lid.
  • Set the cooker to cook on low for 4 hours. Tip, if your slow cooker cooks fast, you may need to decrease this cooking time.

  1. If you have the time, you can sear the roast by seasoning with salt, pepper, and garlic salt and dredging with whole wheat pastry flour. Place in a hot frying pan and brown the roast on all sides prior to placing in the crock pot. This will make a thicker gravy.
