This savory slow cooker pot roast has a flavor that cannot be beat. The meat cooks beautifully, and ends up being fork tender and full of flavor.
There is nothing quite like crock pot recipes for easy cooking and superb flavor. Plus the house smells great while the meal is cooking.
Crock pot cooking is a real energy saver for a busy home cook. How do your slow cooker meals end up? If you are not satisfied with your results, you may be making one of these crock pot mistakes.
This recipe uses chuck roast. It is inexpensive to buy and has great marbling of fat to keep it juicy and moist and is so delicious when it is done. And did I mention how wonderful the house smells while it is cooking?
You can use whatever vegetables you would like. For this recipe, I used onions, carrots, and celery and also added some whole baby potatoes, seasoned with fresh thyme, oregano and bay leaf.
A bonus is that you don’t need to make an extra gravy. Adding the flour to the meat and browning it first and them making the liquid from the pan juices is all you need to do and the crock pot will make the gravy for you.
*Cooking Tip*: Don’t overcrowd the crock pot. About 3/4 full is the maximum to make sure it all cooks evenly.
If you don’t have a crock pot, what are you waiting for? I use mine year round for all sorts of recipes.
Be sure to get a crock pot that is bigger than you think you may need. I have gone through several to get just the right size. (crock pots should not be filled to the top, so you need a larger size than you might anticipate.)
Now, turn on your slow cooker and come back in about 8 hours for dinner ready for the table, and get out in your garden and dig. It’s spring!
This post roast is great served with a side of my delicious corn bread. Enjoy!

Hi Sharon. The recipe calls for roast beef and I have not made it with lamb, so I can't comment on how it would turn out or how to adapt it.

Shouldn't that be 1/4 cup flour?
