Crock Pot Pot Roast

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.
  • Potatoes
  • 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)



  1. 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.)
  2. Mix all the vegetables together and add about 32 oz of Chicken/Beef broth to the bottom over the vegetables.
  3. Begin to season your vegetables as well. Usually I will put some minced garlic, some pepper, seasoning salt.
  4. Once all the vegetables are seasoned add one Beef Bouillon cube on top.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!)



With Love,
