This recipe is probably my boyfriends favorite thing that I cook!
Typically takes 10 hours if on low. The longer you cook it, the better. Sometimes I will prep and start cooking the night before and by the time I wake up it is just falling apart amazing! Other times I will put it together before I go to work at 9am (on low), and then when I get home at 6pm, I check it out and if potatoes are still firm and meat is not falling apart I will set on high for another hour or two. Just come back and check on it every hour or so.
- Crock Pot
- Carrots – I usually get baby carrots to save some time on cutting big ones. Personal preference.
- Onion – If you have someone who doesn’t like onion, instead do onion powder.
- Green Peppers – Max likes green peppers so that’s not a must, it’s our preference
- Apple – We like to put a couple slices of apple on top; not a must
- Beef Chuck Roast – The fattier it is, the more juices and flavors you get
- 2 Beef Bouillon Cubes
- 32 oz (4 cups) Chicken/Beef Broth – Typically I will get the Low-Sodium because I am going to add seasoning salts to the beef
- Worcester Sauce
- A1 Sauce – If you want a nice hearty tasting pot roast
- Seasonings – Seasoning Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder (minced garlic)
- Begin to chop all vegetables and put them at the bottom of the crock pot. ( I put them in the bottom because all the juices from the meat and going to fall the bottom and be absorbed by the vegetables.)
- Mix all the vegetables together and add about 32 oz of Chicken/Beef broth to the bottom over the vegetables.
- Begin to season your vegetables as well. Usually I will put some minced garlic, some pepper, seasoning salt.
- Once all the vegetables are seasoned add one Beef Bouillon cube on top.
- Now lets work on the meat. Make sure it is completely thawed out. I’ve found that if you put frozen meat in, it can be a little tough when it’s finished. Season the meat with the salt, pepper or whatever seasoning salts your family enjoys.
- Once the meat has been seasoned well, put a nice layer of A1 sauce on top of the beef and a couple dashes of Worcester sauce. Then place the Beef Bouillon cube and apples onto of the meat.
- Cook for roughly 10hrs on low. (Result times could vary depending on your crock-pot. Ours is pretty old so it doesn’t cook as well as some. I’ve found though, you can never have it in for too long, the longer the better!)
