What does slow cooker London broil taste like?
Imagine rich, beefy, and super tender slices of meat coated with rosemary and thyme-scented gravy. When served on a bed of fluffy mashed potatoes with a side of sweet roasted carrots, you’ve got a plate that resembles a Norman Rockwell painting. In one sentence, it tastes like pure comfort – just like those big family-style Sunday suppers at your Nana’s house when you were a kid.
To make this London broil in a crockpot, you’ll need the following 11 ingredients:
- Avocado Oil – Any neutral flavored, high smoke-point oil will work here, but avocado oil is a great choice.
- London Broil – Any lean, thick, tough cut can be used here, such as top round or top sirloin.
- Low Sodium Beef Broth – Choose a nice brand since this will form the base of your gravy.
- Fresh Rosemary & Thyme – For that herby flavor.
- Worcestershire Sauce – Adds a dose of umami.
- Garlic – A staple in savory dishes, feel free to add as much as you like.
- Onion Powder – For a sweeter, tamer onion flavor.
- Salt – For seasoning.
- Unsalted Grass-Fed Butter – Adds richness to the gravy.
- Cornstarch – To thicken the gravy.
- Sear: Heat the oil to medium-high and sear the meat for 2-3 minutes on each side. Place it in the slow cooker.
- Whisk: Combine beef broth, rosemary, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, garlic, onion powder, and salt. Pour the mixture over the meat in the slow cooker. Place the butter on top of the meat and close the lid.
- Cook on Low: Let it cook for 8 hours until the meat is tender and almost falling apart.
- Rest Meat & Finish Gravy: Remove the roast from the slow cooker. Make a slurry with cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Whisk the slurry into the boiling liquid remaining in the slow cooker until thickened.
- Serve: Cut or shred the London broil, then serve it over mashed potatoes. Top it with gravy from the slow cooker and enjoy!
