Ingredients:

  • Chuck Roast (~2.5 lbs)
  • Carrots (1/2 lb; cut into 2 inch segments)
  • Potatoes (6; cut into bite sized pieces)
  • Yellow Onion (1/2; cut into quarters)
  • Garlic (4 cloves; chopped thin)

Directions:

  2. OPTIONAL: Heat up a Cast Iron Skillet on medium-high heat with some oil and sear the sides of the roast (3-5 min). It should brown nicely.
  3. Season the roast with your favorite rub; or just use salt and pepper. Then place it in the slow cooker on top of the potatoes, garlic, and onions.
  4. Add the chopped carrots, and the sprigs of rosemary. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Set the slow cooker on low and cook for ~5 hours.

Notes:

  • The roast is “done” when it falls apart with a fork. Slow cooking a cut of meat like this makes it so tender and juicy.
  • Cooking the meat on top of the potatoes (along with a little oil) helps to add flavor to what would otherwise be bland potatoes. Your potatoes are essentially boiled in meat juice (so tasty!).
  • Add more salt and pepper as necessary.
  • There is no need to stir this dish. Set it and forget it (for no more than 6 hours).
