Crockpot Beef with Gravy Over Rice

-Beef roast of desired variety (I had a chuck roast)
-Rice, enough to suit number of people or to account for leftovers
-Butter (2-3 TB total)
-1/3 of a small onion, diced
-1 tsp garlic powder

Add the roast to your crockpot and put enough water in to cover it.  Add in 1 to 2 TB of butter, the garlic powder, some salt, and the onion.  Cook on low for at least 8 hours or until it is pull apart tender.

When it is ready, cook the rice according to directions.  In a medium skillet, add 1 TB butter and melt.  Add in a heaping tablespoon of flour and stir constantly until combined to start the gravy.  Dip out 1.25 C of beef broth and add it to the flour/butter.  Stir constantly until it starts to thicken and gets to desired consistency.  This makes enough for about 2 people, so adjust as needed.

Put a bed of rice down, top with beef, and pour a little gravy over.  Crack pepper over it if desired.

I would love to stay and chat, but I am nearly falling out of my chair.  This chick is sleepy!

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
