How to Make Slow Cooker London Broil
STEP ONE: Heat a bit of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the beef with salt and pepper, and sear it for 1-2 minutes on each side. This step is optional, but it helps bring out the natural flavors of the meat.
STEP TWO: Pour the broth, water, and onion soup mix into a 6-quart crockpot, and give it a good stir. Add the bay leaf, baby potatoes, and carrots, and season them with a pinch of salt and pepper.
STEP THREE: Place the seared beef on top of the vegetables, cover the crockpot, and set it to cook on Low for 8-10 hours or on High for 4-5 hours.
STEP FOUR: When the beef is done cooking, transfer it to a cutting board and let it rest. Then, arrange the vegetables on a serving tray, while leaving the broth inside the crockpot for now.
STEP FIVE: Whisk the cornstarch and water together until well-combined. Add the mixture to the broth in the crockpot and gently stir. Set your crockpot to High and let the gravy cook for 15-20 minutes to thicken.
STEP SIX: Carve the beef to your desired thickness and serve it with the homemade gravy, vegetables, and, if you wish, a side of noodles or rice. It’s time to savor the deliciousness!
Should London Broil Be Cooked Fast or Slow?
When it comes to cooking London broil, I’m all about low and slow. Slow cooking ensures tender and juicy results every time. If you cook it at too high of a temperature, you risk ending up with dry, tough, and chewy meat. That’s why this slow cooker London broil recipe is a winner!
Do You Need to Put Liquid in a Slow Cooker With Beef?
Indeed, a bit of liquid is necessary for your crockpot London broil with vegetables. However, there’s no need to completely submerge it. I typically add 1 cup of beef broth and 1 cup of water to mine. As the beef and vegetables cook, they will release their own liquids and create a wonderful broth. Adding more liquid might turn it into a beef stew, which is delicious but different from our goal.
What’s the Best Way to Tenderize a London Broil?
In this slow cooker London broil with potatoes and carrots recipe, you won’t have to worry about tenderizing the beef before cooking. The low and slow method takes care of that for you! However, if you choose to roast it in the oven, marinating the beef beforehand can help tenderize it.
