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.

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

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.
