Happy Husband Crock Pot Roast


Happy Husband Crock Pot Roast

 

I’m excited to share with you one of our favorite meals. There’s something about this cut of meat – combined with the long, slow process of cooking it in a crock pot –  that makes it fall apart, cut-with-a-fork tender. Plus, it’s got every man’s favorite staples: meat & potatoes.

Now it’s important when making this that you purchase a Boneless Beef Chuck Roast. Watch the labels, because I have accidentally picked up round roasts or ones marked “pot roast” and ended up coming out with a mediocre meal. 

Let’s get started! 

First, spray your crock pot well with cooking spray. 

Now slice up your red pepper (core and seeds removed) and onion.

Red Pepper and Onion

Cut your potatoes into 1/2 – 1″ bite sized pieces.

Potatoes

Add all of these items to the crock pot, dumping in half a bag of baby carrots and mix well. 

Mixed

You may have to push some of the veggies to the side to fit your roast on top. 

Added Roast

Ours is a baby roast – 1.82 lbs – because it’s just feeding my husband and I. Now sprinkle the Lipton’s Onion Soup mix on top of the roast: 

Prepped Crock Pot

Add in your chicken broth.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. 

Now, this won’t be the prettiest meal you’ve ever eaten – but I promise it tastes amazing!
