Italian Crockpot Roast

Josh here for a belated Thursday recipe.

This one is going to be quick. It's super easy and has a great flavor.

Italian Crockpot Roast

1 top round beef roast
1 bottle Giardiniera (pickled Italian vegetables, found near the olives)
1 cup peperoncinos (pickled Italian hot green peppers)
4-6 small new potatoes, red or white or combination
1 medium yellow onion, quartered
1/4 cup water
Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Italian dry seasoning (or oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme)

Rub roast in olive and season on all sides. Sear in a pan so the seasonings absorb into the meat until all sides are brown.

Wash potatoes and quarter onion and place at bottom of crockpot. Add 1/4 cup water.

Place roast on top of potatoes and onions. Pour out vinegar from Giardiniera and pepperoncini and add on top of roast.

Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 5-6.



  1. so how much "about" does this top round roast weigh?

  2. Yay - a recipe for crock pot meat that doesn't empty envelope and open can! Thanks Josh
