Slow Cooker Beef and Sweet Potatoes

As you're no doubt aware, my level of content production has once again dropped of dramatically since the school year started. We've been trying to come up with quick and easy recipes that can fit into our week and still sound good to all of you! This might be one of them. It's a super-easy slow cooker recipe that is wonderful for cold days. I like that there's a pretty good chance most everybody has these ingredients on hand at any given time. Or not. I'm on my 3rd rum and Coke so I'm prone to wild speculation at this point

Slow Cooker Beef and Sweet Potatoes

  • 2-3 pound beef roast
  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large (2-3") cubes
  • 1 large red or yellow bell pepper, cut into thin slices
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine (here is a link to some non-alcoholic substitutes)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Mix garlic powder, brown sugar, and salt in a small bowl. Rub mixture over entire roast. 
  2. Place roast in slow cooker. Place potatoes around roast and top with onion and peppers
  3. Add Marsala wine (or whatever you're using in place of it)
  4. Cook 3-4 hours on HIGH or 6-7 hours on LOW. 
Good Times!
