1/2
cup frozen pearl onions (from 1-lb bag)

  • 4 Remove beef from slow cooker; cover and let stand 15 minutes. Slice beef; serve with beef juice and onions from slow cooker. <BR><BR><B>Note:</B> This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

Expert Tips

(Total time will vary with appliance and setting.)

Kalamata olives have a dark purple color and a rich and fruity flavor. They are generally packed in olive oil or vinegar and are sold whole or pitted.

Fluffy homemade mashed potatoes--skins on or off--is the perfect partner for beef roast.
