While we’re adding the goodies, I’d like to tell you that I love cremini mushrooms!  The firm texture of these fresh mini portabellas makes them so easy to slice.  As a result, once cooked, they also add to the heartiness of Savory Beef Roast with Mushrooms!  Yummmo!!

As you can see, I also dot the surface of the beef roast with butter.  Adding butter, in my opinion, just brings a richness to the roast that enhances the flavor.  Isn’t everything ‘better with butter’? 🙂

Dot the top with the cubed butter, then place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low setting for 8-10 hours. Just before serving, separate beef roast from juices. Set roast aside. Skim most of the fat from the top of the juices. Measure 2 cups of the juice and pour into a medium saucepan.
