"This is one of those roasts that will have you licking your plate clean! Yup, it's that delicious! I really like using the sodium free Herb Ox beef bouillon packets, but if you don't want to use them then just go ahead and use water. The 3-5 hour cooking time is approximate as there are so many kinds and sizes and makes of crock pots and some vary quite a bit in heat. Plan on at least 3 hours but it could take longer than times listed, so plan ahead. I serve my roast with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Glazed Carrots, Coleslaw and fresh rolls, but you can change it up how ever you like. Enjoy!"

Step 1

Cover the entire roast with the onion powder, garlic powder and steak seasoning. Do not add any salt!

Step 2

Place roast in crock pot.

Step 3

Add the water to the crock pot, making sure it reaches all the way up the sides of the roast, but not covering the top.

Step 4

Sprinkle the bouillon packets over the water and mix in. Cover.

Step 5

Turn crock pot on low and cook for 3-5 hours, depending on size of roast and crock pot. Allow extra time just in case your crock pot is different than mine. It is done when the roast falls apart when you try to lift it with a fork.

Step 6

You can make gravy from the juices.

This turned out so tender and so delicious. I used a blade roast for this, and lots of pepper but no salt, thank you!

These old fashion recipes are some of the best, and that's why they withstand the passage of time. This is so easy made in the crockpot and helps me get a great meal on the table on busy days. It is delicious and so tender. We often have it with whipped potatoes and glazed carrots.

I used an eye of round roast and cooked on low for about 6 hours and it was amazing. The roast was so flavorful and tender there was no need for knives. I did add the bouillon granules to the water and made gravy out of the juices left when done roasting. We loved our Sunday dinner Linda thank you for sharing!

I would have to call this a WOW roast because after the first bite my husband looked at me and said, boy is this a WOW roast! I had it with parsnips, potatoes and beets. Seriously delicious!

Oh my is the meat ever tender! I used a blade steak and browned it off before starting the recipe. We both thoroughly enjoyed this dinner. Thank you so much for sharing another of your wonderful recipes! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
