I already made this recipe several times, and it always gets finished easily. It is super easy to prepare. Start by seasoning your meat. The secret to a delicious pot roast is choosing the right cut of meat. Remember that tip. Sear your beef until browned and toss into the crock pot along with the other remaining ingredients. Cover it with the lid, and let your slow cooker do its magic. Once done, shred the meat, and it’s ready to serve.

It is perfect with mashed potatoes, rice, roasted vegetables, or crusty bread.

Start by mixing all the seasonings in a small bowl. Coat the beef with oil, then sprinkle the seasoning mix. Pat onto the skin. Flip it over and do the same on the other side.
