This easy pot roast will fill your kitchen with mouthwatering aromas as it slowly cooks to tenderness. Based on users' suggestions, we updated the recipe in August, 2022 and increased the liquid and the seasonings so the meat comes out even more succulent and delicious.

    I always braise the meat before putting it in the crockpot, and add filtered water to the pan and scrape it, and add it to the crockpot with beef stock, for extra flavor. I also cut the roast into 4 equal size chunks so that it cooks thoroughly. This recipe needs tweaking, as the amounts for seasonings and liquid are much too low, which seems to result in tough meat and bland flavor, according to other comments. I rarely follow a recipe though, having been cooking for close to 60 years.

    I used a Tri-tip in this recipe but like others stated it needs a medium setting or longer cooking time. Veggies were a little bland so I cooked them a little longer in a cast iron with buter until well browned with additional salt and pepper and they were delicious!

    This was not done in 6 hours on low and the potatoes were not done either it has no liquid in it so it’s very dry and tough and there’s no seasoning on the carrots or potatoes you do not cook a 2 lb roast on low for 6 hours. I will never make this again

    It came out great though I did change the recipe quite a bit. I added 1 cup of red wine, 2 cups of water, a sprig of fresh rosemary, 4 dried bay leafs, chicken stock cubes, and garlic powder. I also pre-seasoned the beef with salt, garlic powder, and fresh ground black pepper. I cooked it all on high for a little over 7 hours. The beef just fell apart as I took it out. It was favorful and juicey. The potatoes and carrots were nice and tender. I do reccomend you change this recipe to your liking. Just 1/4 cup of red wine sounded way to dry to me. Also the recipe seems to lack seasoning so add more to taste.

    Underwhelming is the best way to describe this. It was bland, dry, and tough.

    The pot roast was delicious, I used some of the suggestions in other reviews and I upped the measurements to 1 TBS. I added one cup of wine. After about three hours on low setting, the meat and veggies were looking dry, so I upped the temp to high and I added 2 cups of beef broth to the crockpot. After 5 hours the veggies were cooked but the meat was not tender, so I removed the veggies and left the meat in the crockpot to cook on high for another hour. The meat still was not as tender as I like it, so I turned the crockpot off and left the meat in (it was 10pm and bedtime; I had to get up early for work.). In the morning I removed the meat out of the crockpot and it was nice and tender. I divided the veggies & meat into 4 servings. I took one serving to work and I put 3 servings in the freezer for future meals. (After letting the food cool properly of course.) When I warmed it up in the microwave the meat was juicy, tender and full of flavor, along with the veggies. This is a great winter comfort food.

    Good! The recipe developers really need to rework the amount of seasoning used. 1/4t of salt will not adequately season 2 lbs of beef . I upped all measures to a tablespoon. The wine I put a cup in.

    I am a vegetarian, made it for my dogs. I skipped the red wine (of course) and added water and flour to make gravy. It came out super tender and juicy. The gravy and vegetables were perfect (Carrots, potatoes, butternut squash). Six paws up! lol! They would love for me to make it again. :-). I don't understand how this did not turn out for people. Maybe there is something wrong with their crock pot.

    Had to bump up the heat on the crockpot after 3 hours; 2 more hours and still hard carrots and potatoes. Maybe meat should be cut into smaller chunks so heat could get to the vegetables and cook meat better.

    A little bland. I did add several cloves of garlic and celery. Next time try more wine and add some A-1 and/or worshershire and a little more salt. Maybe braise the roast first

    Excellent! I added beef broth to the slow cooker for a juicer result.

    Very tasty. More filling than I expected. I added chicken breast and used cheese tortellini. I will be making it again!

    Very easy to make, perfect for the much cooler weather we are having. Great to make over night and serve for dinner, or pack for my hubby’s lunch the next day, even as leftovers a day or so later great dish!

    After it cooking for 5 hours in low it was still tough. i dumped most of the liquid & poured a cup of ginger ale over the roast. i dont know if that helped, but it turned out juicy & tender.

    Horrid. Needs more liquid. Beef broth or something. I followed the receipt exactly (I always do the first time before I start making adjustments) the meat didn’t fall apart as it should, the potatoes and carrots were rock hard still. Won’t use this again.
