Rich Braised Chuck Pot Roast in the Crock Pot

READY IN: 10hrs 20mins
Recipe by Penny Stettinius

This is my pot roast recipe altered to be done in the crock pot.**Warning, this has tons of flavor! I like a lot of vegetables with my roast but don't want them cooking all day into a vegie mash. So in this recipe I add them after the roast has cooked. I find I can go to work all day while the roast is cooking, come home at 5ish and remove the roast, let that rest while the vegies cook. Delicious served as is or with garlic bread and a green salad.

This was Full of Flavor!!! It made the whole house smell so good. The roast was very moist and fell apart so easy. My kids loved it. The only thing I wasn't able to do was sear the roast in the bacon fat since I didn't have any on hand nor did I even have bacon to fry up and use that fat. We had leftovers in tortilla shells which made awesome beef tacos!!! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
