    Things To Grab

    • 5-to-6-quart slow cooker
    • Large nonstick skillet


    1. Place potatoes, carrots, and onion in a 5-to-6-quart slow cooker. 

    2. Pat roast dry; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat oil over medium-high heat in nonstick skillet. Add roast and sear 2 to 4 minutes on each side. Place on vegetables in slow cooker.

    3. Add garlic to skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 seconds. Add 1/2 cup broth. Bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits in skillet. Boil until reduced by half. Whisk in remaining 1 cup broth, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and herbes de Provence. Return to boil, then add to slow cooker.

    4. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours or until beef reaches 205 degrees. Place frozen beans on roast; cover and cook 30 minutes more. Transfer beef and vegetables to a platter; cover and keep warm.
