Spiced Crock Pot Beef Roast

We all have tried numerous crockpot recipes, but my favorite recipe has tons of sodium and just isn't on plan. It is the three seasoning packet pot roast, which includes Italian dry dressing mix, ranch dressing mix and brown gravy mix. Boy is it ever good! This one is still pretty good and the splice blend was a nice combination of sauces and spices. The roast was tender and there was plenty of liquid to cook this roast. I just shredded the meat and mixed it in my salad. The recipe below is exactly what is written in the Medifast Cook Book. I decided to leave out the veggies and make it into a salad instead. Enjoy!
Spiced Crock Pot Beef Roast
From the Medifast Cook Book
2 1/2 lbs (40 oz) raw, boneless beef chuck clod roast (should yield six 5 oz cooked servings)
6 cups (1 1/4 lbs) whole mushrooms, trimmed
3 cups (7 to 8 large stalks), celery, roughly diced
3 cups green beans, trimmed
2 cups (12 to 14) scallions, roughly chopped
Crockpot Spice Blend:
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
4 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp dry mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
Trim all visible fat from roast. Rub black pepper and garlic onto roast; place in crockpot. Make several small slits in top of roast. In a small bowl, combine remaining spice blend ingredients; pour over meat. Cover; cook on low 6 to 8 hours or  on high 4 to 5 hours. Add vegetables during last 30 to 60 minutes of roasting.
6 Servings with 1 Lean, 3 Greens and 3 Condiments (No Healthy fat required)

  1. I'm going to try this one. I like the sound of the spices you use. Since discovering grass fed beef, I've been serving it to my family more and I'm searching for some different roast recipes.

  2. This was so good. I am so glad you are posting recipes again.

  3. This was the very first L&G meal I tried on my first day of TSFL... and it was AMAZING!!! Before I even had it in the crock pot, the seasoning and basalmic vinegar was increadible! Thank you so much for your contibutions!

  4. how do we manage the servings? like it shard to divide it into 6 different plates then to store, when you ate it what was one serving size?

  5. Hi Sandy, I LOVE your recipes! I'm new to medifast & your website is huge lifesaver. I wanted to make this tonight but had a question. Do you add additional water to the crockpot to keep the roast from drying out or is the liquids in your recipe the only liquids you use?

  6. I followed the recipe exactly so I didn't add any extra liquids. I have made pot roast before with beef broth though.

  7. do you have the nutrition content on any of your recipes? i'm trying to track all my food on myfitnesspal.

  8. No I don't have any nutritional info for the recipes but you can log the ingredients in my fitness pal and save them under recipes. It makes it easier if the recipes are saved for the next time you make them again.
