Apple and Onion Beef Pot Roast

Rely on your slow cooker to help prepare this moist pot roast. I thicken the juices to make a pleasing apple gravy that's wonderful over the beef slices and onions. —Rachel Koistinen, Hayti, South Dakota

Ingredients

  • 1 beef sirloin tip roast (3 pounds), cut in half
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 large tart apple, quartered
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/8 teaspoon browning sauce

Directions

  • In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, brown roast on all sides. Transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker. Add water to the skillet, stirring to loosen any browned bits; pour over roast. Sprinkle with seasoned salt, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder. Top with apple and onion.
  • Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until the meat is tender.
  • Remove roast and onion; let stand for 15 minutes before slicing. Strain cooking liquid into a saucepan, discarding apple. Bring liquid to a boil; cook until reduced to 2 cups, about 15 minutes. Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir in browning sauce. Stir into cooking liquid. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with beef and onion.
