Here are 3 of the best slow cooker recipes for beef:

The Beef and Barley Warmer

What you need:

  • 1 1/4 beef chuck roast
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 can chopped stewed tomatoes
  • 4 beef bouillon cubes
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1/2 cup barley
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, plus more to taste
  • Salt to taste

Cook chuck roast on a slow cooker for 4 to 5 hours on high setting, adding bay leaf and barley during the last hour. When meat is ready and tender, slice into bite-sized pieces. Remove bay leaf and set the meat, broth and barley aside. In a large pot over medium high heat, heat oil then cook carrots, celery, onion and mixed vegetables until tender. Stir in tomatoes, beef bouillon cubes, water, sugar, 1/4 black pepper and beef mixture. Bring to a boil, lower heat then simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper if needed.

Meaty Pepperoncini Sandwich

What you need:

  • 8 hoagie rolls, warmed
  • 1 1/4 kilogram beef chuck roast
  • 1 jar pepperoncini
  • 16 slices provolone cheese
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced

Carefully make small cuts in beef and place garlic slices inside the cuts. Place the roast in a slow cooker then pour all the contents of the pepperoncini jar over the meat (including the liquid). Cover and cook for 6 to 8 hours on low. When ready, slice meat and place on rolls. Top with cheese and sprinkle with pepperoncini.

Crock Pot Coffee and Garlic Roast Beef

What you need:

  • 2 kilograms chuck roast
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups prepared strong coffee
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Make a few deep cuts on top of a roast using a knife then push garlic inside. Place the beef on a slow cooker and pour coffee over it. Cover and cook for 6 to 8 hours on low. When ready, heat the drippings in a pan over medium low heat. Combine water and cornstarch in a bowl then add mixture to the pan. Simmer until thickened. Serve mixture with roast.
