Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

This is a recipe a friend sent me from www.nellsoldfashionrecipes.com

1 beef sirloin tip roast (4 pounds)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, divided
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 envelope brown gravy mix
2 cups cold water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Cut roast in half; rub with 1/4 cup flour. Place in crockpot. 

In a small bowl, combine soup, salt, pepper, garlic powder and gravy mixes with remaining flour; whisk in water until blended. Pour over roast. 

Cover and cook on low for 6 hours in crockpot. I like to use this recipe and make open face roast beef sandwiches and mashed potatoes.
