Pot Roast & Vegetables

Can you believe I've never made a pot roast? Personally, I've never been a huge fan but I also haven't had it in a really long time. I have also grown to like beef more than I did when I was younger. So I decided to make it for 3 reasons: 1) I got the chuck roast on sale, 2) It's super easy to make and 3) I wanted to give Jon a nice manly meal!

Pot Roast with Vegetables
Source: Stef's Kitchen!

1 pound chuck roast, sprinkled with salt & pepper
2 medium potatoes & 2 small potatoes, cut into chunks
3 carrots, cut into chunks
1 large onion, cut into chunks
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 cups beef broth

Put vegetables into the bottom of a crock pot. Place roast on top of vegetables. Pour beef broth into the crock pot and dot the tomato paste around the roast. Cook on low heat for 6 hours (but check to make sure you don't overcook the roast!).Pin It


  1. we are sooooooo related. i'm the same way with making beef dinners (as in i don't make them often) but i tried a pot roast recipe a couple weeks ago for the first time as well (for the same reason you did: a manly meal for the hubby) and i am in love. making it again tomorrow!

  2. I have never made a pot roast either! But this looks great so I may have to try it soon!

  3. I think this looks fantastic. IWhat a great job for your first pot roast. Bet it was delicious!!
