Crockpot Pot Roast

This is such an easy roast and it always comes out perfect.
beef chuck roast 2 1/2-3 lbs.
garlic powder

I simply peel the onion and cut it into quarters, toss in pre-packaged baby carrots (peeled), and wash potatoes and cut them into quarters.  I place all of this under the roast in the crock pot.  I lay the roast on top, pour in a cup of water and season as desired with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.   I cook it on low for 8-12 hours.  The meat will fall apart with a fork and the veggies are tender.  Delicious comfort food for winter's day.  I really wish I was sipping a Mia Tia in Hawaii but, hey, you have to work with what you have.  LOL

This is a wonderful recipe! I put my meat in frozen and add 1 tablespoon of onion soup mix and 1 cup of water to your ingredients....just love my crock pot!You could use sweet potatoes too!

Bet it smells great while it's cooking too! May I suggest you treat yourself to a Mai Tai with your pot roast:@)

Hi Sherry, This is just how my mom used to make it - except she used the oven. I have cooked my roast like this many times and it is so flavorful and easy. You can also add parsnips if you like.
Hugs, Beth

Oh this looks so good Sherry. What's better than a good meal you can prepare in the crockpot?

Not sure if I stopped over to thank you for visiting my blog and for the nice comment. I really appreciate it. I scrolled down to your last tablescape and loved it too! :)

This is getting scary, Sherry. We're having pot roast for dinner tonight. The last sentence of your post cracks me up after the message I posted on your beach post. I think you and I have had too darn much winter. :o)

Now that looks good. I bought some roast at the store and will be fixing us a dinner with it later this week. I love to add green beans to ours too.

I do think the secret is cooking it for a long time -- and the smell while it is cooking is worth every minutes Joni

Debbie said...

I think it looks terrific! My problem is that I have a big old huge crock pot and an empty nest. I think I need to shop around for a small one.

Ann Nichols said...

Oh... I can't believe it! I cooked almost the identical thing this morning for dinner tonight! Finally I can go and eat something that makes my mouth water in a blog!!
Enjoy your meal!

Natasha said...

Now that looks sensational! I wish it would cool down a bit here so I can start thinking about Winter comfort food!

Best wishes always,
