When it comes to classic comfort food, it’s hard to beat this slow cooker pot roast. It serves up juicy, tenderized meat that falls right apart, along with chunky, good-for-you vegetables that fill you up in the best way possible.
A classic pot roast doesn’t need much really – just the right cut of meat, veggies, and meaty broth. But it’s the fresh sprigs of herbs that gives this recipe a flavor boost.
Heat some oil in a cast iron skillet, season the chuck roast with salt and pepper, then sear it on both sides before adding into the slow cooker.
Add the veggies, broth, red wine, and herbs on top of the meat and cook on low for 8 hours.
Remove the fresh herbs and roast from the slow cooker, then slice or shred the chuck roast, depending on how you want to enjoy it.
If you'd like to thicken the broth , stir together the arrowroot powder and water in a small bowl and mix it into the slow cooker liquid.
