Unique Beef Pot Roast With Turnips

Certainly a show stopper.


• 5 medium turnips, peeled, cut into strips

• About 2.5 Tablespoons olive oil

• 1 red onion, cut into small pieces

• About 1.5 teaspoon dry thyme

• 1 cup beef broth + 2 cups hot water

• 3 pounds beef chuck shoulder roast

• 1 teaspoon dry rosemary

• 4 Tablespoons butter

• Salt and pepper to taste


  1. First of all, please make sure you have all the ingredients available. In a frying pan, please heat the olive oil.
  2. Brown the meat for about 2 to 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Now pour the broth & remaining ingredients, without the turnips, in the crock-pot.
  4. This step is important. Then cover, cook properly on low for about 4 to 5 hours.
  5. One thing remains to be done now. Take the lid off & quickly add the turnip strips.
  6. Finally re-cover, cook properly for an additional 2 to 3 hours on low, until the turnips are soft. The delicious recipe is ready. Enjoy!!
