Slow Cooker Garlic Cider Roast

I have been getting tired of the same old stuff all the time. I have decide to try and branch out. We tried a new roast recipe called slow cooker garlic cider roast. This may sound weird and it was definitely different but we thought it was good! 

With school starting for teachers in less than ten days… Let’s not talk about that. I needed to come up with some new recipes to feed my family that don’t take all day. There is this thing that I like to call School Cassie and Summer Cassie. In the summer I love to cook and make labor intensive meals and try new things. School Cassie, on the other hand, wants what is quick, easy and tastes yummy. It’s hard to do everything with keeping the house clean, playing with Grey, making dinner and staying up on grading! Garlic Cider Roast is definitely going to be one we do again!


  • 2 1/2 lbs boneless beef chuck roast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • cornstarch (dissolved in water, for gravy)


  1. In a medium bowl mix together salt, pepper, beef bouillon, water apple juice, brown sugar, mustard and cider vinegar. Whisk until well blended.
  2. Place roast in crock pot and then pour mixture over the top. Then put the onions and garlic on top.
  3. Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours, until beef is tender.
  4. When roast is done, take out and shred the beef. Use the juice to make gravy. Bring to a boil, and put cornstarch in cold water. Whisk in slowly into the hot juice. Thicken the gravy, pour over rice and then top with the beef. Enjoy!
