Expert Tips

Make the gravy in the slow cooker instead of on the stove-top by removing roast and onions. Stir flour mixture into reserved liquid; cover and cook on High heat setting 10 to 15 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.

Vary the herbs by using Italian seasoning, dried thyme or dried basil instead of the oregano.
