Slow Cooker Italian Roast

Today has been a lazy Sunday. The weather can't make up it's mind yet rather it is still summer or if it is turning into fall. Yesterday was a gorgeous, fall-like day. Today it's summer. High temperatures and high humidity. A perfect day to be curled up on the couch with a book, inside my nice air conditioned living room.

My extreme laziness even extended into the kitchen where dinner was assembled and put into my slow cooker around noon and eaten at 6. There is nothing nicer to accompany a lazy Sunday than a good, old-fashioned Sunday Roast Beef dinner.

Slow Cooker Italian Roast
Serves 4-6

3-4 lb roast beef
1 12 oz. can of diced tomatoes, undrained
1 red onion, cut into smell wedges
8 oz. mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
1 cup non-sweet red wine
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Rub meat with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, pressing into meat.

Place meat in the bottom of the slow cooker, pour in tomatoes and arrange onion wedges & mushrooms around the meat. Pour in wine.

Cook on low for 6 hours, or until meat is fully cooked. (About 4 hours on high).
