Filet Mignon Crock Pot Roast

This is another of my own recipes, so ingredients are approximate:

Prep: 20 minutes, 6-7 hours in crockpot
Yield: Serves 8

1 large beef roast
4-5 chopped scallions
2 garlic cloves, minced
3-4 strips of bacon, cooked & crumbled
1 cup of sliced mushrooms
3 TBS worchestershire sauce
1 cup low sodium beef broth

Put all ingredients in crock pot 6-7 hours. Remove beef from crock pot & carve. Drain vegetables & bacon reserving liquid and garnish on beef. Thicken reserved liquid with 1 TBS corn starch in crock pot for gravy if desired.

Suggested Sides:
Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans

Tips & Tricks:
In a pinch substitute Bacon Bits for bacon.

How Kids Can Help:
Kids can't put ingredients into crock pot & push buttons on slow cooker.

Nothing brings out the flavor of beef tenderloin like throwing it in the crockpot for 10 hours. Don't forget to throw in some canned soup and top with velveta cheese.
