How to Make It

Step 1

Place the potatoes, carrots, celery and tomato into a 3 1/2-quart slow cooker.  Season the beef with the black pepper.  Place the beef into the cooker.

Step 2

Stir the soup, water, garlic, basil, oregano, parsley and vinegar in a small bowl.  Pour the soup mixture over the beef and vegetables.

Step 3

Cover and cook on LOW for 10 to 11 hours** or until the beef is fork-tender and the vegetables are tender.

Recipe Tips

  • *To roast garlic, place 1 whole garlic bulb onto a square of aluminum foil.  Drizzle with vegetable oil.  Wrap the foil tightly around the garlic.  Roast at 350°F. for 45 minutes or until the garlic is soft.  Peel and chop the garlic.
  • **Or on HIGH for 5 to 6 hours.
  • Tip: For thicker gravy, mix 1/4 cup all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup water in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth. Remove the beef and vegetables from the cooker.  Stir the flour mixture into the cooker.  Cover and cook on HIGH for 10 minutes or until the mixture boils and thickens.

    Delicious and so easy!

    I used a beef bottom round roast, but other than that I followed the directions. I loved it! Definitely a keeper!

    Zesty Slow Cooker Italian Pot Roast

    I used a chuck roast and I substituted the celery for one medium sliced onion. I also cut back on the spices at 1/8 tsp each. It came out perfect and so delicious.

    Zesty Slow Cooker Italian Pot Roast

    The roast was very good and tender. I used what was on hand. I didn't have any dried parsley so I just used Italian seasoning for the seasoning, red wine vinegar, I didn't have any tomatoes on hand so I used canned diced tomatoes. Overall the meat was great.
