Slow Cook Pot Roast

Introduction: Slow Cook Pot Roast

*Sorry no images of the food, but I do not have the ability to take pictures of food. So instead, enjoy this image of my beautiful wife.*


  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 8 medium carrots, cut into thirds
  • 2 medium onions, each cut into 8 wedges
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 beef chuck roast (3 pounds), trimmed of extra fat
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • OPTIONAL: 4 medium potatoes, cut into fourths


  • Crockpot


  • On High: 6 Hours
  • On Low: 10 Hours

Step 1: Combine Ingredients

In the crockpot, stir together cornstarch and 2 tablespoons cold water until smooth (No Lumps). Add carrots and onions; season with salt and pepper, and toss. Try to get the carrots and onions mixed well.

Optional: On top of the carrots and onions, place the potatoes.

Step 2: Add Roast

Sprinkle roast with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; place on top of vegetables, and drizzle with Worcestershire.

Cover; cook on high, 6 hours (or on low, 10 hours).

NOTE: I suggest a cut of roast with some marbling. If you are unsure of what roast to purchase, look for Chuck Roast.

Step 3: Notes

Do NOT fuss with the roast; set it and forget it. Do not add more water. Do not brown roast first; this method will do it for you. The gov says cook it to 160 degrees; to be honest, I never check the temp.

This is a pretty good roast.
