If you're planning a large party or get-together, make roast beef in a slow cooker to save time. You can prepare the roast on the morning of or night before the dinner, and allow the slow cooker to do all the work. A slow cooker will transform a chuck roast into a tender piece of meat that you can slice and serve on fresh buns or by itself. For added convenience, prepare the gravy in the slow cooker as well.
