Easy Roast and Veggie Slow Cooker Dinner

potroast

This was one of the days where I had to be to work at 3am. I can’t tell you how much I love having a slow cooker for days like today, I can prepare a meal before I go to work and after I get home there’s a delicious lunch waiting for me. I also love the way it makes the house smell – it’s so inviting. This doesn’t take long to prepare and get into the cooker, and on a cold snowy day it’s worth it to wake up a little bit early for it.

Ingredients:
1 1/2-2 pounds chuck roast
salt and pepper, to taste
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup baby carrots
1 medium onion, sliced into 1/2″ pieces
4 medium potatoes cut into 1/2″ pieces
3 celery stalks cut into 1/2″ pieces
2 cups beef broth
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon rosemary

Season the meat with salt and pepper and coat a skillet with the olive oil. Cook the meat over medium high heat, until all sides are golden brown (about 6-8 minutes). Transfer to the slow cooker and pour the beef stock over top the meat, then add the rest of the seasonings and vegetables. Turn the slow cooker on low and allow to cook for 6-8 hours. The roast and vegetables should be very tender (basically falling apart) to the touch of a fork when done.

Perfect meal for a cold day – Enjoy!
