A Blog with a Purpose

I started this blog with the intention of making a good shared recipe site. These are all recipes which I have found, cooked, ate and loved (also that my 2 going on 3 picky eaters loved as well: my husband, 6 yr old son and 3 month old daughter). So give them a try and feel free to leave comments on the recipes as well and share this page with your friends. Enjoy - Kenni Holland

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

OMG! Is the only way I could describe this. I can't remember what magazine I snagged this out of but it was probably taste of home or family circle. But it is by far the best roast beef I have ever tasted. I served this with yeast dinner rolls, home fries, and steamed peas. DEFINITELY fixing this again.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef



1 boneless beef chuck roast (4lbs) trimmed
1 large sweet onion, chopped
1 1/3c. plus 3 tbsp. water, divided
1 (10.5oz) can condensed French Onion Soup
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/3c. reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4c. cider vinegar
6 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp. ground ginger
3 tbsp. cornstarch

Cut roast in 1/2. Place in slow cooker; add the onion and 1 1/3c. of water. Combine all but cornstarch and remaining water in a bowl and pour over top of roast. Cook on low for 7-9 hours. Remove roast from cooker, strain juices and transfer to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth and gradually add this to the boiling juices, stir until thickened.
