In this recipe, we make a slurry with cornstarch and water and kick it up a notch by adding Worcestershire sauce. The cornstarch thickens up all the natural juices from the roast and veggies as they slowly cook.

If you have time, give the meat a good sear in a hot pan before putting it into the slow cooker for an even tastier roast.
