Can I Cook Beef Roast in the Crock-Pot?

Good Questions

Q: I recently picked up a small eye of round roast, and everything I read about cooking this cut involves slow-roasting at some point. However, I don't have an oven. Is there a way to do it in a crock-pot?

Editor: Yes! A slow cooker is a great way to cook a roast like this. The slow and steady heat helps break down the muscle and make it tender. I would suggest cutting it into smaller pieces and cooking it on low until fork tender. Here's a good recipe:

Readers, any other ideas for cooking this roast?
