  • 3 pound eye of round roast
  • ½ cup beef broth or water
  • ¼ cup soy sauce low-sodium recommended
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4 large cloves garlic minced, or 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water


  • Optional for extra flavor: Place a cast iron skillet on high heat. When hot, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and the roast. Fry for 5 minutes, turning regularly using kitchen tongs for even browning.
  • Place the roast and other ingredients into the crock pot.
  • Set the crock pot to cook on High for 6-7 hours or Low for 8-10 hours until tender (see note).
  • Optional gravy: Pour the juices from the crock pot into a saucepan on medium-high heat. Add the cornstarch-water slurry and let it bubble for several minutes stirring constantly until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat.
  • Slice the roast crosswise against the grain and serve with the juices or gravy drizzled on top.


  • You can add vegetables to the crock pot for the final hour or so. Chopped potatoes and carrots will need 60 minutes, while green beans need about 30 minutes.
  • Make Ahead: This cut it not suitable for making ahead of time, as it risks toughening up during reheating.
  • Use leftovers to make roast beef sandwiches or beef vegetable soup.
