The Perfect Pot Roast Recipe

The Perfect Pot Roast Recipe - Alicia in Wonderland Blog

My husband is originally from Texas, and before I met him, I was a vegetarian. In our house, he is definitely the top chef when it comes to making any kind of beef dish. I have been working on perfecting my pot roast recipe for a while now, and have finally found the perfect blend of ingredients. There is a Sunday pot roast that we love from a local diner, and sometimes I wish we could have it on days other than just Sunday. We actually enjoyed my newly perfected recipe even more than our favorite diner’s recipe 🙂

Ingredients:
Beef chuck roast
White potatoes, cubed
Baby carrots
3 sprigs each of the following fresh herbs: thyme, rosemary, sage, oregano
3 large cloves of peeled garlic
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon salt
water

The process is super simple. I just threw all of the ingredients in the crock pot, and filled up the rest of the way with water. I left the herbs whole on their branches. I cooked it all in the crock pot for 6 hours on high and an additional two hours on low.I used a very large cut of meat though to make quite a few meals, so you may want to adjust that if using a smaller piece of beef. Super easy and amazingly delicious! I even saved the broth for other uses (post coming tomorrow!).
