How to Cook a Pike's Peak Roast


Pike's Peak roast is a type of pot roast made from a cut of meat low on the round. This cut is tougher than most other roasts and must be cooked at a very low temperature for several hours to increase its tenderness, making this dish perfect when you're expecting to put in a long day at the office. Like other roasts, this classic slow cooker recipe can easily be customized to suit individual tastes.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 Pike's Peak roast, thawed
  • 1 can mushroom soup
  • 1 can mushroom stems and pieces
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tbsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. dry mustard
  • 2 tbsp. dried sage
  • 1 garlic clove, diced
  • Mix the salt, dry mustard and sage together in a bowl.

  • Place the thawed roast on a platter and rub the spices over the entire roast.

  • Place the roast into the slow cooker.

  • Mix the beef broth, mushroom soup, mushrooms and diced garlic together in a separate bowl. Make sure the ingredients are combined well.

  • Pour the mixture over the roast.

  • Place the lid on the crock pot, plug it in and turn the heat setting to low. Allow the roast to cook for approximately 10 hours.

  • Turn off the slow cooker, remove the lid and allow the roast to cool for approximately 10 minutes before serving.

Tips & Warnings

  • Consider adding additional spices or vegetables to the roast to enhance its flavor, such as black pepper or onions.
  • Use caution when cooking with a slow cooker. If the appliance is not in proper working order, it could overheat and cause a fire.
