Crockpot Beef Base Recipe

1 5lb roast (or whatever cut you prefer/have on hand)
1 qt. beef broth
1 carrot, diced
2 bay leaves
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. allspice
1 tsp cornstarch
salt and pepper
1 Tbsp. water

Liberally coat beef with salt and pepper on all sides, then brown in a frying pan. In the crockpot, mix together cornstarch and water to make a slurry. Add onions, carrots and garlic and stir. Place browned beef on top of the vegetables. Add seasonings and beef broth. The meat should be mostly covered by the broth. If not, add more broth. Stir and cook for 8 hours on low.
