While this recipe is already delightful as is, you can customize it based on your family’s preferences or the ingredients you have on hand. Here are a few substitutions to consider:
- Avocado Oil: Sunflower oil, safflower oil, or grapeseed oil are all good substitutes.

- Cornstarch: Arrowroot powder/starch, tapioca starch, or unflavored instant potato granules can replace cornstarch.
- Sear: Heat the oil to medium-high and sear the London Broil 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.
