Total Prep Time: 6-8 Hours

Servings in Recipe: 6

Serving Size:  8 oz bowl



  • Beef roast or similar large cut (minimum 910 grams / 2 pounds)
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large, yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 large, red potatoes, cubed
  • Other harvest vegetables options: celery, yams, parsnips, turnips, etc. (optional)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, sliced (or 1 tsp garlic powder)
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup spicy BBQ sauce (brand and heat level of your choice)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bay Leaf


  • Place unseasoned beef cut on rack in slow cooker
  • Salt and pepper to taste. If using garlic powder, add it at this time.
  • Add vegetables evenly around roast in slow cooker.
  • Sprinkle garlic slices evenly over vegetables
  • Add bay Leaf
  • Pour Worcestershire and spicy BBQ sauce over the roast. Over time, these sauces combined with the meat juices will form a savory broth.

  • Present roast at the table on a pretty platter, surrounded by the veggies. Serve with a loaf of crusty bread with melted butter or a crisp, side salad with a light vinaigrette dressing.
