For this recipe, you will need one 3-4 lb. top round roast, one tablespoon of olive oil, one teaspoon of sea salt, one teaspoon of black pepper, one teaspoon of garlic powder, one teaspoon of onion powder, one teaspoon of paprika, one cup of beef broth, one tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and one onion, diced.
Begin by preheating your slow cooker on the high setting. You can also use a Dutch oven or roasting pan with a lid, if desired. Then, take your top round roast and rub it on all sides with the olive oil. Sprinkle the sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika over the roast and rub it in.
Place the onion in the bottom of the slow cooker and then place the roast on top of the onions. Pour the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce around the roast. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours, or until the roast is cooked through and tender.
Once the roast is cooked, remove it from the slow cooker and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Slice the roast into thin slices and serve with the onions, broth and Worcestershire sauce.
