Roda's Slow Cooked Beef Roast with Rice on the Side Dinner

Roda Laser


I enjoy slow cooked beef roasts, but I get tired of the typical roast with potatoes and carrots. I have been looking for a recipe that would be great tasting, yet not typical. After much scouring through recipe books and recipes here on JAP, I could not find what my taste buds were longing for. So I decided to create my own roast beef dish. Of course without potatoes or carrots I did need a side to accompany my roast. I decided to use some of the broth from the slow cooker after the roast was cooked to prepare a rice dish.
For those of you who want potatoes and carrots,these can be added. However, you will not have enough broth to also prepare the rice.

  1. Season roast with seasoning and set aside for a short while.
  2. Slice onion and place in bottom of slow cooker. Place seasoned roast on top of onions.
  3. Mix together Worcestershire sauce, coffee, and bourbon. Pour over roast. Cook on high for 4 hours. Serve the roast with some of the broth on the side for dipping, if desired.
