This is my favorite slow cooker pot roast recipe and I have tried quite a few. It's easy and tastes delicious. I always search for this recipe when I'm craving roast. It's good as-is, but sometimes I'll sprinkle a pack of onion soup mix on top. Yum!

I never review anything, I never post, but this roast was a huge hit for my family's Passover dinner. It was a risk to randomly try a new recipe but there was so much food it was ok and it was our first year hosting with family coming a good distance away. I doubled the worcheschire sauce and added 4 tbls of red wine like some reviews recommended everything else was the exact recipe. Again it was great and couldn't have been easier.

I'm making this now, reason for only one star but I have to agree with Jeff, the carrots regardless of where they are placed as I've made similar before, just plain mush. I threw in a few carrots for flavor but before this is done, I will either steam some carrots or remove the carrots that are in the slow cooker and replace with new about an hour before done, maybe less. Playing with it. Same reason I don't put potatoes in my pot roast, I make mashed. I like my veggies aldente....

The video appears to be brisket and not a chuck roast. Would think either cut would be good but the chuck roast would fall apart whereas the brisket will be tender and can be sliced.

This is the best basic pot roast recipe I've ever had. I was skeptical as I tend to use a lot of [filtered]es and herbs when I cook, but this really doesn't need any other ingredients to be fantastic. I've also made this adding some potatoes and mushrooms as well as the carrots and onions since we love veggies, and it's still perfect.

Prep = A, Ingredients = A, Cooking ease = A+, Vegetable result = B, Roast result = C, Overall Appearance = B, Au Jus = C Trying to expand our dinner selections for our family of 2 adults + 3 kids. Everything done to prepare this to cook was super easy. Cooking was even easier in the slow cooker. The results however, would make me look for other recipes and/or try my own seasoning variations. The roast, carrots & onions all turned out great in appearance & texture. The taste fell well short.

This has been my 'go to' recipe for years now. I add potatoes and celery and a few splashes red wine and it comes out perfectly cooked, flavorful, with a nice amount of 'gravy' every time. I was so happy to find a recipe that did not require packaged soup or dressing mixes - the flavor of the vegetables and meat shine through deliciously. Try it as written or with a few twists of your own, just don't add water and there's no need to brown. You won't be sorry!

I used this recipe every time and it is perfect. So easy and delicious. I prep the vegetables the night before and quickly put it together. It keeps the family happy and does take to much prep time in the am. I find the gravy very tasty. Perhaps it depends on the cut of meat - seems that a little more fat on the meat creates a lot of extra flavor. I also add green beans as that is a family tradition. Myself I prefer green beans a little crispy but these are tasty and the kids love them.

I have not actually made this recipe yet but I plan to. I am just commenting on the gravy and lack of taste. I find that cooking the potatoes and carrots in with the roast robs the flavor of the gravy. So much flavor is soaked into the potatoes and carrots that it leaves the gravy pretty flavorless.

Made this exactly as wrtten. 10 hours on low, roast perfectly cooked and it did indeed look as if it had been seared - strange! The carrots weren't even overdone which I find astonishing. I de-greased the pan juices and thickened them with some flour - tasted them and they were a little flat - added a teaspoon of better than bullion and a healthy shot of red wine vinegar to zip them up a bit, then put the roast back in the crock with the gravy and left it on warm til dinner. Everyone enjoyed it.

I usually make pot roast in the crock pot by adding a can of cream of mushroom soup and a packet of onion soup mix. This makes a wonderful pot roast (don't add anything else - including water), but I wanted something different. My daughter has celiac disease so I have to make everything gluten free. I made this recipe and it was really good. I added whole red skin potatoes - which I think were even better than the meat. I added more worcestershire sauce than the recipe called for.

I've made pot roast a bunch of times and every time it came out dry and disappointing. I'd thought I'd give this recipe a try, and it was great! I made a point to follow it closely - only difference was I left the fat on the meat and cooked it with the fat on top, and added just a splash of red wine. It was really, really good. The part of the meat that was in the juices was much more tender, but the whole roast was moist and flavorful. Yummy!

I found this recipe and was hesitant to try because I have never had success with a pot roast in a slow cooker...UNTIL NOW!! I followed this exactly only adding more salt and pepper and Worcestershire due to preference as well as 1/4 cup water but that may not have been needed. I used a 3.5 lb chuck roast. This came out perfectly , fork fall apart tender and the juices made a perfect gravy that doesn't even need thickening. I can't imagine cooking roast any other way again.

I followed the recipe just like it read except my roast was 2 lbs instead of 3lbs. It was still juicy and tender even though it was on top of the carrots, I only added the 2 Tblsp water and I didn't shorten the cooking time for the size difference. It was perfect! Will definitely make it again.

Just follow the directions. Do not brown. Do not add extra water (my roast was swimming about waist high in its own juices (plus the water that cooked out of the veggies) by the time it was fininshed. And do not use a over-large cooking vessel: slow cookers work best when full. I cooked my roast for 10 hours on low, and the internal temp was 195 deg. F. The meat was tender and juicy--very similar in texture to BBQ pulled pork. This is easily the best pot roast I have ever tasted.

So I saw this recipe and spent 20 minutes reading reviews trying to determine if you brown the roast as usual.. Lots of reviewers did that well because that's what our mothers taught us! I also agree the photo looks as if it's been browned.. However. I was brave and followed the directions to a T!! I did NOT brown/sear the roast first and I only added the 2 tablespoons of water... And it was FABULOUS. Moist and perfect!! I cooked on high for 4 hours. My crock pot is new so I guess HOT!

Have made this 3 times so far. Twice with the meat suggested and once w/ a meat the grocer suggested for normal pot roasts when they were out of the recipe cut. The substitute was horrible - no flavor, dry as a bone and overcooked. Each time I've made it as directed, it's been wonderful. Everyone loves it, very tender. My crock pot is older so it takes about 10 hours on low and the meat is tender and still has pink in the middle.

Made this in the oven - I never leave reviews but this is the first roast I've made that fell right apart. So moist. 350 degrees for 2 1/2 hours and 1 1/2 at 170 just to keep it warm because it cooked up a little quick. It definitely was bland for my taste though. I used the juice to make up a gravy though and that helped.

After reading that some people ended up with dry meat I decided to quickly brown the roast on all sides. My roast was only 2 pounds but I did not scale back on any of the other ingredients. Expected the cooking time to be shorter though. But when I opened the slow cooker after only 3.5 hours on high to check the internal temperature the roast was completely overcooked and the dish turned out DRY. I will try the dish again but on slow and with a thermometer in from the start.

I made this , But made a few changes. First I browned the roast first in a pan with olive oil,salt & pepper. Then I deglazed that pan with the worcestershire sauce and a bit of water. Poured that over the roast and veggies in the crock pot. It was very good, The meat does get a bit dry though. Overall it was a success :-)

I made this for a party with high hopes, being a "martha stewart" recipe. I was impressed that the prep was so quick and easy, but soooo disappointed in the end result. I cooked it on low for 9 hours (i had to chunk up the meat to fit more in for my party). The meat was so dry and it seemed all the juice came out into the pot. I will NOT try this recipe again.. I would recommend trying another recipe that has you sear the meat before putting in the crock pot. Those turn out much better, IMO

So simple. I have a small family, the roast was too much for us. I used chuck eye steak instead. For more flavor & kick, I seasoned the steak with salt, pepper & minced garlic. I let the dry rub sit in for about 15 minutes... then I seared the steak on 3 mins on each side, high heat. Then I followed this recipe. TURNED OUT PERFECT!!! Searing it first brings out all the flavor. Gave it a more rustic look too. SOOOOO delicious.... Please try :)

DELICIOUS!!! (made some modifications) The roast I bought was 1lb larger than the recipe called for & my slow cooker is very tiny. All carrots and onions didn't fit. Had to improvise. I seasoned meat with salt, pepper, nature's seasoning and extra Worchestershire sauce. To make it a more hearty meal, I made mashed potatoes separately and drizzled them with the essence from the roast. My hubby, mother & sis loved it & our 3 kids (5, 4 and 3) asked for 2nd's AND begged for it the next night!

I guess the primary, cardinal rule here is: "KNOW THY SLOW COOKER!" as it called for either a 6 hour cook time on high, or 10 hours on low. Thank God I chose 6 at low... even that was too much as the roast came out very well done. Next time I will try 5 hours at low and see how that does. I also tweaked it a bit, adding garlic and dried thyme. Would also recommend 1/2 c low sodium beef broth, 1/2 cup red wine, and doubling corn starch/cold water to make thicker gravy. Flavor was excellent tho!

I was nervous about not putting any liquid so I added a few tablespoons which stopped the veggies from sticking to the pot. Its amazing the amount of gravy the meat produces.

This was just DELICIOUS and so easy.

Don't add any liquid! I've prepared this 2 times now and I have plenty of sauce left for a great gravy. I also do not brown the meat first.....the meat comes out with a good color (not gray) and flavor...it's the worchestershire sauce that enhances the color. I also cook it for 10 hours on low. This is without a doubt one of the simplest and most successful recipes for a slow cooker. Don't complicate it.

Easy and elegant, my young son asked for seconds, thirds, and fourths! (Yes, they were small helpings.) I like the suggestion of a bay leaf and will toss one in when I make this again. I might also, after skimming the fat, add some balsamic or a cup of red wine to the juices to make an even richer gravy. Our carrots turned out great - glazed and flavorful. Keep the veggies to a medium cut so that they do not overcook.

I first brown my pot roast after dusting it with flour and a sprinkle of sugar on both sides (also salt and pepper). This creates a really flavorable, brown crust that will help thicken the juices and make a tasty gravy.

My mother always said to brown it first, to just sear it on both sides.

I'm pretty sure that you don't need to add water because the slow cooker creates liquid with steam and cooking with the lid on. I have done it several times. Of course, adding a little liquid will just give you a little more delicious gravy.

A very important ingredient appears to have been omitted from this recipe-Liquid. Water, broth,soup needs to be added for this to cook in a slow cooker.
