It's an EASY recipe and Low Fat too.  Pair it with some mashed spuds like we did and WOW, everyone will be full and smiling!
1 medium onion, halved, sliced
1 beef rump roast or boneless arm roast (3 lbs)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (we used minced garlic)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1/2 cup beef broth (you can do half beef broth & half red wine if you want)
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water

Spray 4-5 quart crock pot with cooking spray.  Place onion in bottom of crock pot.  Place beef roast on top of onion.  Sprinkle with garlic, chili powder, salt and pepper.  Pour tomatoes & broth (or broth wine mixture) over top of roast.
Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours.
Remove roast to cutting board; cover and keep warm.  Ladle cooking liquid into 2 quart saucepan; heat to boiling.  In small bowl, combine cornstarch and water to form a smooth liquid; stir into boiling liquid.  Cook and stir 1 minute or until thickened.  Slice beef; serve with gravy.
Hugs & Happy Days!
