With the help of a slow cooker, you can achieve that perfect balance of tenderness and taste without spending hours in the kitchen

1. Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe


  • 3 pounds chuck roast
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup red wine (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Season the chuck roast generously with salt and pepper on all sides.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add a small amount of oil and sear the chuck roast on all sides until browned. Then transfer the roast to the slow cooker.

In the same skillet, add the chopped onion, minced garlic, carrots, potatoes and celery. Sauté the vegetables for about 5 minutes until they start to soften. Transfer the vegetables to the slow cooker, placing them around the chuck roast.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the beef broth, red wine (if using), tomato paste, bay leaves, and dried thyme. Pour this mixture over the chuck roast and vegetables in the slow cooker.

Cover the slow cooker with its lid and cook on low heat for 8 to 10 hours or on high heat for 4 to 6 hours. The cooking time may vary depending on the size and thickness of the roast, so adjust accordingly. The meat should be tender and easily shred with a fork when done.

Once the chuck roast is cooked, remove it from the slow cooker and let it rest for a few minutes then shred the meat using two forks. Serve the shredded chuck roast with the vegetables and the sauce on top.

If desired, you can strain the cooking liquid from the crockpot and reduce it on the stovetop to create a flavorful sauce.

The slow cooker is a true kitchen hero when it comes to creating a delectable pot roast. Its low and slow cooking method allows the beef to become incredibly tender while infusing it with rich flavors.

With the instructions shared in this article, I believe that you can confidently prepare a mouthwatering slow cooker pot roast that will impress your loved ones.
