  • 5 – 6 lb beef pot roast
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 4 large carrots, chopped
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup red wine (or chicken broth)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 5 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 bay leaves
  • fresh thyme
  • 4 – 5 sprigs of rosemary


Step 1

Season the chuck roast with salt and pepper to taste, 2 tsp oregano, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, and 1 tsp onion powder on both sides. Once done seasoning, set the meat aside. Next, prepare your veggies by chopping them up in chunks. Heat up your cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and add 2 tbsp olive oil. Add the chopped carrots, onion, and celery. Season them with a little bit of salt and black pepper and saute them on medium-high heat for about five minutes. After five minutes, add in 6 cloves of minced garlic and saute it together with the veggies for about 30 seconds. After cooking the veggies, transfer them to your slow cooker.

Step 2

In the same pan, add some more oil and once the oil gets very hot, sear the meat over medium-high heat for three minutes on each side. After this, place the meat over the veggies in the slow cooker. Next, in the same pan, melt 2 tbsp butter, then add 3 tbsp flour. Cook it for about a minute while stirring, then add 1/2 cup of red wine and 2 cups of chicken broth. Mix everything together and let the sauce cook for about a minute until it thickens. After this, add 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 5 tbsp tomato paste, and 4 tbsp brown sugar. Mix everything well and let it simmer for about a minute. Next, pour the sauce all over the pot roast in the slow cooker. Put three bay leaves, some fresh thyme, and 4 to 5 sprigs of rosemary on top for extra flavor. Place the lid on and set the slow cooker on low for 8 to 10 hours.
