Step 1

Set your crock pot to Low.
Preheat olive oil in a heavy pan on medium high heat. Rub all sides of the roast with salt & pepper, then brown each side (including the edges) in the oil. Place in your crock pot and add the onions, garlic and carrots.

Step 2

In the same pan you just browned the beef, add the wine and whisk until you get all the brown bits from the bottom scraped up. Add this to the crock pot along with the beef stock. Cover and cook 6-8 hours on low.

Step 3

Carefully remove the roast and vegetables, leaving the liquid behind. Turn the crock pot up to high. Mix equal parts water (or beef stock) and cornstarch, then add to the liquid in the crock pot. Stir until thickened.

This dish can also be made in the oven in a dutch oven. You'll want to cover it and cook for about 3 hours.
