I love my slow cooker! I use it all year round in the summer when it is too hot to grill and in the winter when it is too cold to go outside. It is so easy to throw all the ingredients in the crock pot and then turn it on before I go to work and let it do its magic while I am gone.
The best part is coming home to dinner that it is already cooked and ready to be served, and the house smells incredible. If you were not hungry before you got home, you will be after you smell the wonderful aroma from this incredible Crock Pot Chuck Roast.
This Crock Pot Chuck Roast is the ultimate comfort food. Growing up I can’t count the Sunday suppers we had with a pot roast as the main course. It was always juicy, tender and full of flavor, because my Dad loved to add lots of seasoning and let it slow cook until it fell apart with just a fork.
I have so many good memories of those Sunday dinners, and each time I make this Crock Pot Chuck Roast and I smell it cooking, all those wonderful memories come flooding back.
This is one of our favorite roasts, along with the Cajun Herb Prime Rib Roast.

Start with the best quality beef chuck roast you can find. I think every grocery store in America has them. If they didn’t, the store would probably go out of business!
Before placing the roast into the crock pot, I like to season the meat and brown it on all sides of the roast. I think that adds even more flavor and sears in the juices. Don’t worry, it doesn’t take long. Just sear it for a couple of minutes on each side and then place it in the crock pot. The added flavor the searing provides makes this extra step worth it.
After you place the seared chuck roast in the crock pot, add in the onions, carrots, and potatoes so they can cook with the pot roast.
Then pour in the beef broth and Worcestershire and cook it on low for 8 – 10 hours and you will have the best pot roast you have ever had in your life!
Since it was all cooked in one pot, you can spend less time washing dishes and spend more time with your family enjoying this incredible Crock Pot Chuck Roast and the roasted potatoes and carrots!
Go ahead and make this easy, flavorful, budget-friendly and family friendly one-pot meal. You will be glad you did and so will our family!
