Crockpot Pot Roast
This post is part of my year-long partnership with Reynolds and I’m telling you now… This slow cooker roast recipe could set the record for the quickest and easiest cleaning of a dinner recipe.
My husband and I spent this past weekend with a group of our best friends to celebrate one of my best friends from too many birthday years. It was one of those important birthdays that we all worried a little about, but once it finally arrives and then passes quickly, you wonder what all the hype and hypertension was all about.
As we will, we ate,
we drank, we rejoice and we compare notes on all of the above
All my friends love food as much as I do, so there’s always a lively conversation about it. As it’s become standard talk for me lately, I pulled out my soap box and talked about my love for my Instant Pot, the slow cooker/pressure cooker/steamer and over 7 pot in one that I’ve become a diehard fan of.
And because this Mexican pot roast recipe was top of mind, it took center stage as my shining example of how easy it is to cook a delicious slow cooker recipe and skip all the cleaning.
The reason this Crockpot roast recipe is so easy with hardly any cleaning is thanks to Reynolds slow cook coatings. The liners fit any slow cooker of 3 to 6.5 quarts and are useful when making a recipe that needs to be taken out of the slow cooker to serve (such as cakes or egg dishes) or when cooking a recipe that could be baked on the sides of the pot (like this cheese sauce like this chili) or when you have a soup broth to strain, Like today’s roast recipe.
And they’re a great solution if you’re transferring a clay pot dish in the car for a party, like my Lil’ Smokies, as you can keep food in the slow cooker but tie the lining bag so it doesn’t have spills before it reaches its destination, then warm up and serve with ease.
Reynolds coatings are BPA-free and made with a special heat-resistant material that retains ingredients without puncturing or tearing, so feel free to use them for your fullest meals as well.
this slow cooker roast?
This Crockpot pot roast comes out super tender and moist thanks to its cut (beef chuck) and the slowly roasted vegetables mixed to complement the Mexican spiced broth that this dish creates. I’ve made this easy clay pot roast three times, and doubled it to make a big party batch one of the times. It’s very easily adaptable that way.
Don’t be fooled into thinking this recipe is spicy or dominated by the heat of Mexican chili. In fact, you won’t find a chili in it, except for the ground chili powder mixed with ground cumin and a hint of smoked paprika that offers all that Mexican flavor.
Here’s everything that goes into this pot roast
- Roasted boneless meat
- Smoked paprika Olive oil
- Carrots Garlic
- Beef broth
How to make Crockpot Roast Pot
Season the Chuck Roast, then brown it all over the way in a hot pan. Line your slow cooker insert with a Reynolds slow cooker coating, then add all the ingredients.
After cooking the meat, I crush the meat and mix the broth back into the meat to get even more flavor. A pinch of cilantro adds to the Mexican theme and some hot tortillas on one side take the place of the traditional Sunday dinner rolls to wrap.
I serve it with these super easy and buttery parsley potatoes (seriously they are my choice) and I slice the cooked carrots with the pot roast. You might be wondering what happened to the onions and celery that were with the carrots. I usually end up eating them straight from the pot. I’m so bad. But it’s so good.
And after that? The lining is thrown away, the dishes go to the dishwasher and we are ready.
How long to cook a roast in a slow cooker
I cook this slow cooker roast for 4 hours over high heat or 8 hours over low heat.
Pot Roast favorites Not sure what to serve with the pot roast? In addition to the buttery potatoes mentioned above, I have a few roasted pot sides that I walk through. Here are some of my favorites:
- creamy cabbage salad pan Cauliflower Mac with cheese
- Best crispy oven-roasted
- Creamy mashed potatoes
- Roasted Brussels
- Broccoli salad
- with parmesan and chives
sprouts with bacon
Can I do this in an instant pot?
You can make this homemade roast using the slow cooker feature on your instant cooker. However, I haven’t tested this recipe using the pressure cooker feature, so I can’t talk about whether this recipe will work that way.
Tips for making the best
Don’t skip the step that asks you to brown the roast before adding it to the Crockpot. Browning the meat before cooking slowly adds a lot of flavor without soiling too many dishes.
You will know that the pot roast finishes cooking when it is tender enough to crush it with two forks. You can also crush the roast Crockpot pot in a stand-up mixer, but I prefer to use two forks.
If you have leftovers from this easy Crockpot roast, you can add it to soups or sandwiches, or freeze it for later. If you freeze the pot roast, be sure to add some of the broth to the freezer container as well so that the meat does not dry out.
