Brown the beef pot roast in the butter in a frying pan. Place the beef roast in the slow cooker with the remaining ingredients except the butter and flour. Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours (high 4 1/2 to 5 hours).

Who is Granny?
I'm the incredibly blessed mother and stepmother of 4, "Granny" to 2 Fabulous boys , and wife of "Grumpy." Life at Granny's House is full of laughter, friendship, books, music, lively debate, sports especially hockey and good things to eat. My days are made even more meaningful by having a beautiful home full of love. The purpose of this blog is to make cooking fun and not a chore. So guys and gals cooking is not any one persons job,we all like to eat, so we should all like to cook. Hopefully I can help you achieve that in your home kitchen. The kitchen is more then a room in the home, it is a place to prepare meals, entertain and enjoy each others company. Family time is very important and there is no better place to find out what is happening in your loved ones lives then the kitchen table with plates full of a good HOME COOKED meal.
I've got to say life is pretty good and seems to be getting better with age. For that I want to thank my family and good friends.
