crockpot roast-

You can’t go wrong with a good Crockpot Roast Recipe and this one is just that. Chunks of beef cooked in a Slow Cooker. The meat is seasoned and cooked with onions, butter and garlic. The ingredients are so simple and minimal, the outcome is mouthwatering. Once the beef is tender and oh so juicy, the meat is removed and coated in tangy BBQ sauce and broiled until crispy. SO GOOD!

how to cook pot roast?

  1. Cut the beef into about 1 1/2″ – 2″ pieces.
  2. Combine the salt, pepper and paprika. Season meat and toss to combine.
  3. Slice the garlic and onion. Slice the butter.
  4. Add the onions, garlic, bay leaves and butter over the beef.
  5. Cook until meat is tender.
  6. Meanwhile, combine ingredients for the sauce.
  7. Remove meat from the Crockpot and transfer to a baking dish (like this one).
  8. Generously coat with sauce and broil in the oven until meat is crispy.
  9. ENJOY!

NOTE: Because you’ll be transferring the meat and broiling in the oven, you don’t need to sear the meat for a crispy finish before adding it to the Crockpot.

how long do you cook a pot roast in a slow cooker?

Pot roast is the perfect meal to throw together and allow to cook all day in the slow cooker. Throw everything together in the morning and allow the Crockpot to do the remaining work. SO EASY!

  • The pot roast will need to be cooked on low for 6-8 hours, or 4-5 hours on high (until tender).

how to season crockpot roast?

A flavorful pot roast is best when it’s seasoned properly. I love that this roast uses minimal ingredients for the seasonings but still has mouthwatering results. The flavors from the seasoned meat,  combined with the tangy sauce is perfect. You can add additional seasonings if desired. However, they really aren’t necessary – this is so good just the way it is!

    This link was supposed to be for ground beef stir fry, which I really want to check out. It came in my email subscription today, but takes me to this bbq pot roast instead?

      Oh no. That was a mistake on my end. Here’s the Stir Fry Post HERE!

    Can I cook this dish in instant pot?

    • Valentina's Corner 03/15/2019, 10:44 pm Link Reply

      Anna, I’ve not tried it so I cannot be for sure. I don’t see why not though. I’d cook the meat for 1 hour with a natural release and then finish the roast in the oven once topped with the bbq sauce. I’d love your feedback if you try the recipe.

    Hi Valentina,

    Can I use pork for this recipe instead? Or will that change the flavoring of the whole dish.

    • Valentina's Corner 03/14/2019, 1:20 pm Link Reply

      Hi, Anna. Yes, you can totally substitute for pork, I was actually going to write that in the post and forgot. Thank you. 🙂
