Crock pot taking forever

Hi,

About 12:00 noon today I started a beef roast (2.5 pounds) in the crock pot on high, planning to make shredded beef out of it. Guess it had not thawed all the way through. Here it is nearly 8:30 p.m. and it is still not close to being cooked enough to shred. I have to be at work at 6:00 tomorrow a.m. and can't really stay up half the night to wait for it. What are my options? Put it on low and leave it overnight or what??

Thanks for any help!

Dee

Gosh I don't know. It should have been done in 4 hrs. I would've cut it up if you were going to shred it.If you leave it on all night it might be very dry. I would proably put it in the fridge. I guess really it's your call.

Sorry Catzmom.

Something is wrong with your crockpot

I would have stuck it in the oven at. 8:30 for an hour.

It's probably too late now, but I would have added water to the pot and put it on low overnight.

too late, but one option would have been to take it out and chop into smaller pieces . . . . of course every time the lid comes off cooking slows down . . . I hope you got it sorted

That's what I finally did is chop it into smaller pieces. It still took another hour! Ugh. That crock pot is only about a year old. :-/
