  • Crockpot/Slow Cooker


  • 4 to 5 lb. beef chuck roast
  • 3 tsp. salt
  • 1 3/4 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour plus more for coating
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 stalks celery peeled and cut into 2 inch slices
  • 4 medium carrots peeked and cut into 2 inch slices
  • 1 medium whole white onion sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and mashed
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 15. oz can beef broth
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 pcs. dried bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp ground all spice


  • Line your slow cooker with a slow cooker liner. Then place the sliced onions, garlic, celery and carrots directly in the lined slow cooker.
  • Using paper towels, pat the beef dry and season generously on all sides with salt and pepper.
  • In a big deep skillet , heat the oil over medium-high heat. Place the roast on the skillet and cook all sides until golden brown, a total of 6 to 8 minutes. Then transfer the meat to the insert of the 6 quart crockpot on top of the vegetables.
  • Using the same skillet, heat a tablespoon of oil over medium high heat. Add the tomato paste and stir until the tomato paste's color turns to a brick-red.
  • Stir in the 1/3 cup of flour, cup of red wine and whisk until combined.
  • Add the beef broth, thyme, bay leaves, all spice, Worcestershire sauce and the remaining salt and pepper and bring to a simmer.
  • Continue whisking until the gravy is smooth and thickens slightly for about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Pour the gravy into a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 9 hours.
  • Remove the roast and let rest for a few minutes on a serving platter. Discard the bay leaves and thyme stems. Then strain the vegetables, reserving the gravy.
  • Serve the sliced pot roast with some vegetables and gravy ladled over it.
