There is nothing better than meals that you can just throw into a cooker and let them do their magic all day. Beef roast is one of our favorites because it feeds our large hungry family, and grass-fed beef is a really nourishing food! This easy recipe is one of our weekday go-to’s, we hope you love it too! Feel free to toss in some herbs to give it a twist, we love rosemary!
Garlic Beef Roast
Who doesn't love a fall-apart beef roast with all the fixins? It's a very easy meal to make that takes minimum effort to prepare. Full of rich flavor and smothered in delicious beef stock.
- 1 beef roast (we get our meat from Butcher Box)
- 4 cloves garlic
- 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (tenderizes the meat)
- Sea salt
- Black pepper
- In a hot skillet,, sear the roast on all sides (except the top).
- Add meat to the crockpot and add just enough water to leave the top of the meat uncovered.
- Slice the garlic and spread it on top of the roast. Top with salt and pepper.
- I like to leave the top un-seared and uncovered with water so it really takes on a roasted garlic flavor with the garlic on top.
- Cook the beef on high until it begins to bubble and then turn down to low for 4 hours, or until a meat thermometer reads 150°F.
- Slice and serve.
- Use the liquid in the crockpot as a soup stock (the stock freezes very well!).

Do you think this would work well for a lamb roast too?
I think it would be great using a lamb roast and yes you can definitely make gravy from the liquid, I have many times! I use arrowroot powder to thicken it.
Also, could you somehow make a gravy with the leftover liquid in the crockpot?
I am making this for dinner tonight but had one question. Do you put the apple cider vinegar in with the water? I didn’t see it in the directions anywhere. Thank you! 🙂
Yes I do, it tenderizes the meat and pulls the minerals from any bones that might be in the meat and deposits them into the liquid. Win, win! I hope you enjoy it 🙂
I dont like the taste of vingegar. will it taste like it?can i use beef broth instead of water and with or without the vinegar?
You could use lemon juice instead
any idea how do I figure out the Calorie content and what not? it’s dinner tonight 🙂
It looks so delicious. I love it!
Maybe a dumb question, but is a chuck roast the same as a beef roast or is the fat content and cut different?
