Crockpot Cider Pot Roast


Crockpot pot roast with cider and spices.


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 lean beef roast, about 4 pounds (top round, rump roast, etc.)
  • 2 medium onions, each cut into 6 or 8 wedges, or 12 to 18 small white onions, peeled
  • 1 rib celery, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons molasses (light)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch blended with 2 tablespoons cold water
  • salt
  • chopped fresh parsley


Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; add beef and brown on all sides. Meanwhile, in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine onion wedges or small white onions, celery and garlic; sprinkle with allspice, ginger, and pepper. In a small bowl, combine the cider and molasses. Place beef on top of onion mixture; pour in cider mixture. Cover and cook on LOW for 9 to 11 hours, until roast is very tender.

Lift roast to a warm platter and keep warm. Skim and discard fat from cooking liquid, if necessary; then blend in cornstarch mixture. Increase heat to high; cover and cook, stirring 2 or 3 more times, until sauce is thickened (about 15 to 25 minutes longer). Season to taste with salt.

Slice beef accross the grain and arrange on a serving platter. Spoon some of the sauce over meat; sprinkle with parsley.
Serves 8 to 10.
