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.
Cut your potatoes into 1/2 – 1″ bite sized pieces.
Add all of these items to the crock pot, dumping in half a bag of baby carrots and mix well.
You may have to push some of the veggies to the side to fit your roast on top.
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:
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!
