“Ever since I made this the first time it has become a requirement of me for all get togethers. I think there would be a revolt if I didn't bring it and it is the easiest dish in the world to make.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 lbs beef roast (frozen)
  • 1 12 ounces beef stew seasoning (1 envelope)


  1. You need to start with a frozen roast. The ice crystals that form during freezing are key to both the moisture that is created to cook the roast and also help puncture the membranes of the meat making it tender.
  2. Take frozen roast out of freezer and put into crock pot.
  3. Sprinkle package of beef stew seasoning all over roast (like a rub).
  4. Cook on low in crock pot for 20 - 24 hours. Do not cheat on this, the slow and low time is what makes this so much better than other roasts.
  5. After about 1 hour the roast will start to defrost in crock pot and water will come out of frozen roast. Use this to baste the top of the roast to spread the seasonings.
  6. Flip roast every few hours to ensure each side is under the fluid and no sides end up too crusty and seasonings are distributed.
  7. When done, the beef will look almost shredded.
  8. Note: This is GREAT served as is for a main course along potatoes and veggies, but also makes wonderful sandwiches, can be used as meat for enchiladas or tacos etc.
