  • *To roast garlic, place 1 whole garlic bulb onto a square of aluminum foil.  Drizzle with vegetable oil.  Wrap the foil tightly around the garlic.  Roast at 350°F. for 45 minutes or until the garlic is soft.  Peel and chop the garlic.
  • **Or on HIGH for 5 to 6 hours.
  • Tip: For thicker gravy, mix 1/4 cup all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup water in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth. Remove the beef and vegetables from the cooker.  Stir the flour mixture into the cooker.  Cover and cook on HIGH for 10 minutes or until the mixture boils and thickens.
