Servings 8 servings


  • 1 Slow Cooker Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 9 hours.


  • 3.5 lbs chuck or rump roast
  • 2 tbsp steak seasoning
  • 1 tbsp rosemary
  • 3 beef bouillon cubes
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 lb baby carrots
  • 2.5 lbs red potatoes cubed
  • 1 large red onion chopped
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 4 oz white mushrooms chopped
  • 2 cups uncooked rice
  • 3 tbsp flour or corn starch for gravy
  • 1 tbsp olive oil for rice
  • salt, pepper, seasonings to taste


  • Sprinkle & rub in steak seasoning & rosemary on each side of the roast- 1 tbsp per side. (I usually rub 1 tbsp in on the open side while the meat is still in the packaging, flip it into the crock pot, & season the other side.)
  • Add the beef, carrots, onion, celery, potatoes, water, & bouillon cubes to the slow cooker. Cover & cook on high for 6 hours or low for 9 hours.
  • Start to cook rice about 25 minutes before the meal is complete. (1 part rice to 2 parts water ratio.) I always add olive oil & oregano to my rice at the beginning with the water to add flavor & prevent the rice from sticking together.
  • About 15 minutes before the meal is done, chop & sauté the mushrooms with olive oil, garlic, & onion powder.
  • Pour the juices from the slow cooker into a pot & bring to simmer. Slowly stir or whisk in 3 tbsp of flour or corn starch to create a gravy, then add the mushrooms to this. Once heated through, make sure the lumps are worked out, pour into the slow cooker with all the other ingredients & mix it all together. Shred the beef as you are mixing.
  • Serve over rice & enjoy!
