A little different than the usual pot roast, and the crock pot does all the work. The spices add an excellent flavor. I like to serve this over noodles.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place roast in the slow cooker.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients and pour over the roast. Cover and cook on low till meat is tender. Discard bay leaf. Thicken cooking juices if desired. Serve over noodles.

AWESOME! It's not too spicy; just perfectly spiced. I doubled the recipe because I had a 5-lb chuck roast. It was sooooo moist, tender and tasty. I put 1 lb of baby carrots on the bottom of the crockpot first, then followed the recipe. I served the meat and sauce over noodles as you suggest. For the last step, I removed the meat, some sauce, and most of the carrots to serving plates....then, to thicken the remaining juices, I removed the bay leaves and used a stick blender to puree the remainiong juice and a little carrots. FABULOUS!!!!!!! I will make this again for sure. I'd love to try this for shredded beef sandwiches (pureeing the sauce after cooking). Thanx for sharing this!!!
