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.

    • heard from 2 folks who went the other day, their boat not good the other good!!  go figure..  same charter company...
    • Nice fish.  Heading out to Lake Michigan in 2-3 weeks.  Haven't decided exactly where yet.
    • We were on Kinn's boats out of Algoma.  
    • What port did you head out of Duff?
    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time.
