Crockpot Pot Roast Recipe

When I make this, the beef literally falls off the bone. The bones and the ingredients in this roast make a rich broth, a thickener really isn’t necessary.

How To Make Crock Pot Full of Pot Roast

The secret to a tender pot roast is to use a crockpot. This equipment can also heighten the flavor of the roast.

Prep: 30 mins
Cook: 8 hrs
Total: 8 hrs 30 mins


  • 4 carrots, cut in half
  • 4 stalks celery, cut in half
  • 1 red onion, quartered
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 garlic bulb, slice top off
  • 1 green onion
  • 1 stick butter, cut 1-inch thick pieces
  • 4 lb. beef roast, 7-bone
  • 2 Tbsp. kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup red wine
  • 1 lb. gold potatoes, ( yukon small ) scrubbed, skins on and cut in half


  1. Place carrots, celery, onions, rosemary, thyme, garlic bulb and scallion in bottom of 6-qt. crock pot.
  2. Scatter butter over the vegetables.
  3. Salt and pepper the beef roast on both sides.
  4. Lay on top of vegetables.
  5. Mix broth, Worcestershire sauce and red wine together.
  6. Then pour mixture over ingredients in crock pot.
  7. Cook on low for 6 hours.

  12. Strain juice and make gravy if desired.
  13. Make a rough and mix into the boiling broth, stir until thickened.
