Mr. R's Slow Cooker Beef Roast

Mr. R. has not been napping well since the week before he turned "4". Today he decided that he wanted to make dinner and he wanted it to be roast beef. I pulled all of the seasonings out of the cupboard that go well with beef and let Mr. R. pick what he wanted to add (and to some degree, how much to add). This is what he came up with and it was pretty good.
  • 2-3 pound boneless beef roast
  • 1/4 cup spicy brown mustard
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons Chipotle Tabasco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 water
  1. Combine all but roast, cornstarch, and water. Rub mixture all over roast and place in slow cooker; cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  2. Remove roast from slow cooker. Whisk cornstarch and water, add to drippings. Set on high.
  3. Let roast sit for 10 minutes. Slice into 1/4" pieces. Spoon sauce over slices and serve.
