Ingredients

One 3-lb. raw boneless chuck beef roast (trimmed of excess fat)

1 tsp. each salt and black pepper

One 14-oz. can fat-free beef broth

4 cups carrots cut into 1/2-inch coins

3 cups roughly chopped onion

2 cups sliced mushrooms

1 cup celery cut into 1/2-inch pieces

2 tbsp. tomato paste

1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 sprigs fresh thyme

1 tsp. chopped garlic

2 tbsp. cornstarch

Directions

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to high heat. Season roast with 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper. Cook and rotate until all sides are browned, about 5 minutes. Place in a slow cooker.

Add all remaining ingredients except cornstarch to the slow cooker, including the remaining 3/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Gently stir.

Cook on high for 3 - 4 hours or on low for 7 - 8 hours, until roast is cooked through.

Turn off slow cooker. In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in 2 tbsp. cold water. Stir into the liquid in the slow cooker. Let sit, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

Remove and discard thyme sprigs. Slice meat and serve topped with veggies and sauce!
