Thought I would put together a quick and tasty recipe for everyone. This is my third time making this during the COVID-19 isolation and it keeps getting tastier!
Here’s a quick video going over the process and below is the recipe followed with pictures.
- Crock pot
- Round of roast, bottom chuck roast, or beef brisket, 3-4lbs
- Bite Sized Potatoes, 2 lbs
- Bite Sized Yams, 1-2 lbs (Carrots are great as well)
- Chopped Onion, 1 large
- Beef broth, 1 cup (sub chicken broth if needed)
- Cooking oil, 2 tbsp (I use olive oil)
- Fresh chopped ginger, 1/3 cup (garlic is alternate option or both)

- Take beef from fridge and let sit on counter for 30 mins
- Dry excess blood with paper towel and cover in salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees on bake
- Bring crock pot and olive oil up to high temperature on stove top (not so high that you smoke the oil)
- Place roast of beef in the pot, sear for 2-3 mins per side or until crispy
