Thinly sliced Roast Beef! One of our family favorites

For those who love beef you can't go wrong with this easy recipe. 


A good choice for a family dinner and nothing makes slicing easier than an electric knife! If you like your roasts sliced thin this is the way to go and it makes a great gift.  I love mine!

  I love my electric knife!  How many can say that?  If you don't have one it is a must!

For those of us who can't seem to get that roast cut thin enough this is a must have tool.  I have had mine for years and from Biscotti to Roasts this tool works wonders and slices perfectly. 

3 # or more bottom round or eye round roast

Slice thin
Happy Baking and Cooking from my kitchen to yours,


3 lb.(approx.) bottom round or eye round roast(Sear on top of stove for richer gravy color.
1- 32 oz. container beef broth or stock ( I use Swanson)
canola oil
salt and pepper

Brown roast  in oil on top of stove with a few T of oil  adding pinch of salt and pepper.

After you have seared/browned your roast, add broth, cover and bake in  350 degree oven for approx. 2 1/2 hours or until meat thermometer reaches desired temperature.  Remove from oven . Take roast from pan and cool slightly. It will slice better when it has rested a bit.

 ** Gravy: In the pan that has the drippings, skim any fat and add enough cold water to equal 2 cups. (if you have more drippings you will have to adjust flour amount). Whisk together while adding 5 T. Wondra quick mixing flour.  Place on medium heat and stir constantly until thickened and bring to a boil for approx. 1 minute.

Crockpot easy!  Follow recipe above(eliminate canola oil).  Place roast in a crockpot after seasoning, add broth/stock and depending on how long you will be out either set on high for 3 to 4 hours or low for 6+ hours.

Remove from crockpot, thinly slice and serve Au jus with sides of choice.
