Italian Roast Beef

This recipe is great. The whole family loved it, even my 2 year old! I made it in the crock pot so it was super simple too. Makes 8 servings.

1 1/2 cups water
3 cubes beef bouillon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes (optional)
4 pounds rump roast
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Pour water into a large kettle, and add bouillon cubes.
Mix together the salt, garlic, Italian seasoning, black pepper, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes on a large plate. Rub roast with 1/2 cup vegetable oil. Roll roast in seasoning mixture until well coated. Place the roast in the kettle along with any left over seasoning mixture and oil.
Bring water to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer approximately 3 1/2 hours. Meat should be tender and well done.
