Most serious slow cooker recipes call for searing or browning meat before adding it to a slow cooker. Is it absolutely necessary? No, but for those who have the time, the added flavor and texture makes it well worth the effort. Does that mean you can't ever get a "perfect" roast without firing up your burners?
We are happy to tell you an emphatic "no!" This recipe for parmesan crusted beef will get you just that. Not only do you get the rich flavors from the cheese and herbs, you don't have to turn on anything other than your trusty slow cooker.
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
