Progresso Broth

Steps

  • 1
    Trim excess fat from beef. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook beef in oil about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 2
    Place onions in 3 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker. Place beef on onions.
  • 3
    Mix remaining ingredients; pour over beef and onions. Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until beef is tender.
  • 4
    Remove beef and onions from cooker, using slotted spoon. Cut beef into slices. Skim fat from beef juices in cooker if desired. Serve beef with juices. Note: 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

    If you're lucky enough to have leftovers from this flavor-packed roast, add up to 2 cups cut-up beef and onions to a 16-ounce jar of tomato pasta sauce for the best "mamma mia!" spaghetti sauce!
