Beef roast with onions and potatoes

Preparation time: 00:15
Start to finish time: 06:30

Ingredients:
1 large sweet onion, cut in half then into thin slices
1 top sirloin roast (3.5 pounds) with strings or netting removed
3 baking potatoes, cut into 2 inch cubes
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 ¾ cups beef broth
1 package onion soup mix
¼ cup all-purpose flour

Preparation:
Spray a 5-6 quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place onion in bottom of cooker. Place beef on top of onion. Place potatoes and garlic around beef. In small mixing bowl, mix 1 ¼ cups of the broth and the dry soup mix and then pour over meat. Refrigerate the remaining broth.

Cover and cook on low heat setting for 6 hours, or until a meat thermometer indicates 170 degrees internal temperature. Don’t pick at it!

Remove beef and vegetables from the cooker to platter and cover to keep warm.

In a small bowl, mix remaining ½ cup broth from refrigerator with the flour. Gradually, add this mixture to the mixture in the slow cooker. Increase heat to high, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until gravy thickens.
