Slow Cooker Beef with Apples, Onions, and Carrots

We had an accidental dinner party :)  We had a huge roast that we were making and invited a couple friends here and a couple friends there.....turned into a bit of a party with an even bigger after party.  This recipe was a huge hit and SOOOO easy!

Slow Cooker Beef with Apples, Onions, and Carrots

2-3 lb shoulder roast
Italian seasoning
2-3 onions chopped
3 apples, cored and sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 carrots, peeled and cut on the diagonal
1 cup red wine (I maybe put in more :)  I started drinking wine before cooking)
1-2 bay leaves


Getting the ingredients ready
Season shoulder roast with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.  In slow cooker, add roast, carrots, apples, onions.  Pour wine over top of food and add bay leaf.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
The seasoned shoulder roast
All the ingredients ready to be slow cooked.
  Remove bay leaf.  Remove beef and cut on diagonal.  Remove veggies with slotted spoon.  Put rest of juice in additional bowl as au jus.  Serve beef over veggies.  I paired it with homemade mashed potatoes.

Serves 6-8

The table all set up and ready for the dinner party.
