My first choice, of course, is to sous vide at 135 for like 24 hours.  

Or you could do a classic braised pot roast with chuck.  

Or there is a cook's country recipe   for bottom round.... basically salt the meat and roast in a very low (250) oven to medium

We recommend cooking this roast to medium for ease of slicing. Open the oven door as little as possible, and remove the roast from the oven when taking its temperature to prevent dropping the oven temperature too drastically. Because the sauce contains butter, it will solidify as it cools, so it’s best kept warm for serving.

1. FOR THE BEEF: Pat roast dry with paper towels and sprinkle with 2 ­teaspoons salt. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. (4 pound bottom round roast)

2. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 250 degrees. Set wire rack in rimmed baking sheet. Combine 1T rosemary,  1T thyme, 2 teaspoons pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt in bowl.  (fresh herbs, use less if dry)

3. Pat roast dry with paper towels. Brush roast all over with oil and sprinkle with herb mixture; place on prepared wire rack. Transfer to oven and cook until meat registers 120 degrees, 1 3/4 hours to 2 1/4 hours. Turn off oven and leave roast in oven, without opening door, until meat registers 135 degrees (for medium), 20 to 30 minutes longer. Transfer roast to carving board, tent with aluminum foil, and let rest for 30 minutes.

4. FOR THE ZIP-STYLE SAUCE: Meanwhile, bring butter, Worcestershire, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper to bare simmer in small saucepan over medium heat, whisking ­constantly. Remove from heat, cover, and keep warm.

5. Slice roast thin against grain and serve with sauce.

The American TableZip Sauce

Zip Sauce—a lively, butter-based condiment for steak—was invented more than 75 years ago at Lelli’s Inn, a northern Italian restaurant in Detroit. Customers couldn’t get enough of the flavorful sauce, and it became so popular that neighboring restaurants concocted copycat versions. In 2006, Chef Michael Esshaki capitalized on a good thing when he started selling bottled Zip Sauce (just mix it with melted butter at home) online and in Detroit-area markets.

Ingredients....

Beef

1 (4-pound) boneless beef bottom round roast, trimmed
  Kosher salt and pepper
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Zip-Style Sauce

8 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ cup Worcestershire sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon pepper

Easy, just put it in the crock pot. No need to boil your roast for an entire day to get a tender, moist, beef roast :P;):D

I usually do something simple like this with Lipton Onion Soup Mix.

I do the same as Big Dave2 except that I like to brown all sides of my roast before tossing in the crock pot. To me it seems to add more depth to the flavor.

My experience with crock pots is that they are too hot.   Lean meat gets dried out by being overcooked.   

Your experience might be different.

Plus 1+ on the browning first. We had a big Venny Roast in crock pot last weekend up Deer hunting.  Goooood! :)

I think most people's experience with crock pots is different than that. You ever try using the low setting? Most low settings are around 190-209 degrees. I'm not a big fan of food poisoning....

Cook a lean piece of meat to 200 degrees and all the juice will be gone.  

Nobody is a fan of food poisoning.  Are you trying to assert something about sous vide or the recipe I posted?

No silly- his wife did. :grin:

I cook the roasts like I do a prime rib. Inject it with au jus, put my favorite prime rib rub on it and throw it in the smoker till it hits 150, then I pull it and throw in the oven on broil for 5-10 minutes and pull it. The broiler makes a great crust and seals in the flavor. 

 

In the crock pot I will add some beef broth to add moisture but mostly I like beef on the rare side so I don't use that very often.

Actually, I frost my glass beforehand so the milk is ice cold.

The cookies are toasty warm though, because I fresh bake three of them almost every night.

Sleep like a baby.

And now it is time to crack open my breakfast Coke.

Disappointing... 

Not to my tummy.

And it seems like roasts can be hit or miss when the crockpot is involved.

That's where gravy can save the day.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
    • Congrats Nice Bird!
    • Congrats! Way to stick to it. 
    • Been having a tough time getting out. Spent 2 days in Wisconsin with the shotgun. A couple encounters but both hung up out of range. Got out with the bow this morning in MN. An absolutely enchanting morning. Had a Tom engaged at 5:30. 5 Hours of gobbling, Phfft-ing, strutting, and staying just out of range or behind brush & trees. Finally stepped to where I could get a clear shot off.
