This is the Best Crockpot Roast!
Our entire family loves this meal and it is really so simple. Everything gets tossed into the slow cooker and you get to come home to dinner waiting.
It is the perfect meal for busy week nights!
While this meal looks fancy and the meat is so tender and delicious, it is so simple. Literally, the crockpot does all the work.
Cooking a roast in the slow cooker is the easiest way to make a roast. The meat is so tender and you didn’t do anything but toss everything in the slow cooker!
- Now you definitely need a crock pot for this recipe.
- I like the Ninja crock pot.
- Crockpot liners – These make cleanup super easy.
Ingredients for crockpot roast:
- Potatoes- Use the type you prefer and cut into chunks (I used small baby yellow potatoes so there was no cutting)
- Carrots- peeled and cut into chunks. You can also use baby carrots.
- Onion- cut into chunks
- Beef stock or beef broth (one carton) Red wine is also good.
- Minced Garlic
- Italian Seasoning
- Water (for the gravy)
How to make crock pot roast
First, cut all of your vegetables into large chunks. You want them to be bigger so they will not turn into mush.
Second, add the beef to the crock pot and then place the vegetables around the roast.
Next, add all your seasonings and then the beef stock on top.
Let this cook on low for 8 hours. You can cook on high for 5 hours if you prefer.
Once the roast has cooked, shred the beef.
How to make the gravy
It’s time to make the gravy. Use a small bowl and whisk the water and the cornstarch together.
Take part of the liquid from the crock pot and put it in a sauce pan. Now, add in the water and cornstarch mixture in with the beef juice.
Whisk this all together and bring it to a boil. Make sure to stir it frequently for about 3 to 5 minutes.
It should start to thicken. Keep in mind it will thicken some more as it cools.
The gravy is amazing and I like to drizzle it all over the roast, carrots and potatoes.
How long should a roast Cook in crockpot?
We prefer our roast to cook on low for 8 hours. However, you can cook the roast on high.
If cooking on the high setting, 5 hours will be plenty of time for the roast to cook.
What kind of roast to use
We are using a chuck roast and it turned out amazing! The meat was so tender and the flavor was perfect.
You could also use a rump roast or round roast. Whatever cut of meat you choose to use will be so tender after slow cooking.
My family loved this recipe! It truly is the best pot roast recipe!
Plus, so easy and quick to put together with very little effort.
Do you have to brown a roast before putting it in the crockpot?
No, you do not. You can toss the roast in the slow cooker without any prep work.
However, if you like to brown your roast first that is totally fine. Some people prefer to brown the roast a few minutes each side before slow cooking.
Make sure to brown all sides if doing this and use a little olive oil.
This is yet another reason I love my Ninja Cooking System. If you prefer to do this, it is so nice having just the one pot and being able to do it all so quickly.
If you do not have a Ninja, put oil in a large dutch oven and sear your meat this way.
