Beef Chuck Pot Roast in a Slow Cooker 6ozs of Meat with Broth & veggies

Submitted by: LIMASTAR

Introduction

Beef Chuck Pot Roast in a Slow Cooker is easy and dinner is ready when you get home. Beef Chuck Pot Roast in a Slow Cooker is easy and dinner is ready when you get home.
Number of Servings: 9

Ingredients

    60 oz Beef Chuck Arm Pot Roast
    7 oz Onions, cut into large chunks
    6 oz Petite Carrots
    13 oz Celery, cut into large chunks
    1.75 oz Garlic, mashed
    1.12 lbs Potatoes
    32 oz Beef Broth
    32 oz Water

Directions

1. Brown Beef Chuck Pot Roast
2. Add all the vegetables that have been cut up into similar sizes, except the potatoes to Slow Cooker.
3. Place the browned Pot Roast on top of the vegetables.
4. Place the cut up Potatoes around the Pot Roast
5. Add the Beef Broth & Water
6. Grind/add about 1 Tablespoon (or less) of Black Pepper
7. Program Slower for 10 hours cooking time or if Slow Cooker is not Programmable, place on low cooking.


I spray my pan with Pam to brown my Pot Roast. After it is brown, I place all the veggies except the Potatoes in the Slow Cooker and then the Pot Roast. I then place the Potatoes around the Pot Roast. After adding the Beef Broth and Water, I ground Black Pepper on top of the Pot Roast. I do not add salt because the Beef Broth already has it. After cooking you can add the salt if you want, but I find that it is not needed.

Cooking time may vary depending on how your slow cooker operates and at what time/temperature you chose to cook you Pot Roast.

    instead of water I use BEER for almost everything. Different beers bring different tastes..A great alternative for Bland Meat. Richer taste. Recipe is great though. I needed a refresher as I have not made a roast in years... - 9/20/09

    We havent' had Pot Roast in years. I forgot how to make it.
    I used half as much garlic. Slow cooked on low the first 3 hours. Stoked it up to high for 3 more hours...Yum...Thickened the gravey. The Canned broth I used had enough seasonings that I didn't have to add anything. - 9/14/11

  • This was really good, a bit bland for me but I have a taste issue and can't taste very well so I'll be making some modifications to try and make it a bit more flavorful. First chuck roast made and will do it again. - 4/9/11

  • This was delicious, but I found the measurements to be unusual. It seemed to be light on the vegetables and heavy on the meat; I made a 3 lb roast and used at least 1 cup of onions and at least 1 cup of carrots, I cut down the garlic to two teaspoons. - 2/18/11

  • This looks like my recipe...glad I was able to find the calories already counted :) It's super yummy! For extra flavor I sometimes substitute spicy V8 for the water...it gives it a little kick and adds TONS of flavor. My kids LOVE this! Leftovers make a good base for veggie soup. - 9/18/10

  • I made this in the oven and cooked in about 2 hours with all the vegetables and no water. It was hearty and filling and the best part is the leftovers for lunch this week. Great - 2/14/10
