Ingredients

  • 3- lb. raw boneless chuck beef roast trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 tsp. each salt and black pepper
  • 14 oz. can fat-free beef broth
  • 4 cups carrots cut into 1/2-inch coins
  • 3 cups roughly chopped onion
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup celery cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp. chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch

Instructions

  • Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to high heat. Season roast with 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper. Cook and rotate until all sides are browned, about 5 minutes. Place in a crock pot.
  • Add all remaining ingredients except cornstarch to the crock pot, including the remaining 3/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Gently stir.
  • Cook on high for 3 - 4 hours or on low for 7 - 8 hours, until roast is cooked through.
  • Turn off crock pot. In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in 2 tbsp. cold water. Stir into the liquid in the crock pot. Let sit, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 
5 minutes.
  • Remove and discard thyme sprigs. Slice meat and serve topped with veggies and sauce!

Notes

If the roast breaks into pieces when you trim away the fat, just cook each piece in the skillet until browned -- the smaller pieces will take less time. Tongs are great for rotating the meat when browning.
