Slow Cooker Pot Roast – Countryside Cravings

Country pot roast recipe slow cooker

Crazy tender, melt in your mouth roasted slow cooker pot with carrots and potatoes. This super easy recipe requires little preparation and the slow cooker does all the work!

I love using my slow cooker to facilitate meals! I especially love using it to make harder cuts of meat fall apart tender.

Growing this was a staple in my home! Mom always did pot roasting at least once a week.

I’d say 99% of the time he did it in the oven, but I wanted to make a slow cooker roast to share with you.

That way I can still do it in the middle of summer without heating the house!

Why you’ll love this recipe:


  • pot roast turns out super moist and melts in the tender mouth, exactly like pot roasting is supposed to be. There is no dry and hard roast here!
  • This recipe is SO easy! Just put everything in the slow cooker, turn it on and forget it. Then just make a simple sauce at the end.
  • Pot roast can really be an inexpensive meal. Chuck roast, specifically, is an affordable cut of meat, but it comes out worthy of a restaurant.


First, you’ll need a chuck roast. Look for one that has good marbling (grease) throughout, as this will make it moist and tender.

Then you will use onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, meat broth and meat broth. In the end, you will need butter and flour to finish the sauce.

For vegetables, you will need fresh carrots and potatoes. Yukon golden potatoes work best, but you can also use red or reddish potatoes. If they are large, cut them into large pieces before cooking.

Tips for roasting pot:

  • Be flexible with vegetables. Growing up, my mother always had a mixture of carrots, potatoes and onions. But I didn’t include onions in this recipe because my kids don’t like big pieces of cooked onions and neither does my husband. Include what you like and let go of what you don’t like.
  • Choose a chuck roast that is marbled with fat for the most tender results
  • .

  • Don’t rush the cooking time. The low, slow method is perfect for hard cuts of meat because it will allow connective tissue to break down and leave you with tender meat.
