This was so easy and so yummy, and just right for my crockette. You can use 2 pounds of short ribs instead of the roast if you prefer. Notice you use only one-half of the spaghetti sauce mix. Double this recipe to cook it in a 3-1/2 to 4-quart crockpot.

  • 2 lbs beef chuck roast
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 (1 1/2 ounce) package spaghetti sauce mix (use only 1/2 of package)
  • 1 fresh tomato, chopped
  • freshly cooked spaghetti


  1. A four-pound roast may be cut in half; wrap half in foil and freeze for later use.
  2. Sprinkle remaining half with salt and pepper and then with the dry spaghetti seasoning mix. Place in crockette. Top with chopped tomatoes. Cover and cook on low for 7-9 hours.
  3. Slice and serve on hot spaghetti; spoon sauce over all.
