Heat large pan over medium high heat, add olive oil and sear meat on all sides then remove. Place beef in a slow cooker and cover with onion. In a small bowl, mix together ketchup, Worcestershire, brown sugar, paprika, dry mustard and beef broth. Pour mixture over meat and cook on low heat for 10 hours.

Helpful Tips:

My in-laws are German and my mother-in-law is an awesome cook. I served this when they were visiting and they raved over it. I was so flattered when she asked for my recipe. She even bought a slow cooker for this dish, and now she often cooks it at home.
