  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 ½ cups baby carrots
  • 1 (3 pound) beef roast
  • 3 cubes beef bouillon
  • ½ cup water


  1. Gather ingredients.

  3. Cover and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or on High for 4 to 5 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the roast should read 145 degrees F (65 degrees C).
