Italian Style Roast

READY IN: 6hrs 20mins
Recipe by PaulaG

Yet another version of the Italian roast. This is also cooked in the crockpot and is wonderful after a hard day at the office or for a lazy weekend meal. Serve over pasta of your choice with a side salad or steamed veggies for a complete meal. This recipe was printed on the box for my new crocpot.

We also enjoyed this different twist on sometimes boring roast. The meat was moist & fall apart tender. Followed the recipe exactly. It wasn't specified to drain the tomatoes so I didn't. Made just the right amount of "gravy" for a 2 1/2 lb. roast. Thanks for a new idea!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the tomato paste through pepper.
  2. Rub mixture over the chuck roast and place roast in crockpot.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and any leftover rub; cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours on low.
  4. Serve over cooked pasta.
  5. Please note: If you have an older crockpot, it may be necessary to cook roast 8 to 10 hours. My new crockpot cooks in much less time.
