This started out as an experiment and turned out to be an entire family favorite! The meat is so tender it falls apart and so flavorful! You couldn't ask for a better pasta sauce...easier than homemade!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (4 lb) chuck roast (bone-in or boneless)
  • 2 jars pasta sauce (I use Sutter Home-yum)
  • cooked egg noodles or cooked pasta


  1. Put chuck roast in crock pot, pour both jars of pasta sauce over meat and turn on low.
  2. Cook for minimum 8-10 hours.
  3. Serve over cooked egg noodles or pasta.
  4. Yum!

Awesome is a very good word for this recipe. I shredded the meat afterwards, before serving over the noodles.

I wanted lots of sauce so in small crock pot I put 1 15 oz jar pasta sauce, and I cut meat to 1/2 lb chuck to which I added 1 tsp. beef boullion and 1 Tbs. dry onion soup mix.I shredded beef after 10 hours cooking time. Flavorful, thick, a nice alternative to ground beef in pasta. The more time went by the more I wanted to eat more
