    Remove netting from beef if necessary. Cut beef into slices; place on serving platter. Surround beef with onions. Serve with gravy; garnish with fresh oregano.

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.
