Crockpot 8 layer Garlicy Beef 'roast' stew
It's important to layer vegetables under meat in a crockpot as they take longer to cook. The root vegetables needing the most time. Along with that, layering them like this allows all the ingredients on top to exude their juices and cook-down to flavor everything below.
I prefer to leave the roast whole as this allows me to remove the fat and cut the meat to my own preference after, which is of course, falling apart and fork tender. It also allows me to separate the roast and freeze some for the future or having the vegetables, which are yummy in their own right, without the beef, for meals I don't want red meat.
I make this as a batch meal, portion it out and keep it in the fridge for a week as something quick and filling. Submitted by: CCKELLY3
