Weeknight Slow Cooker Chuck Roast

"I love my weeknight chuck roast that cooks all day in the slow cooker. Just season and add to your slow cooker and when you come home dinner is waiting! All you need to do is add your favorite sides; most of them can also be made in advance."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you have a large enough slow cooker, buy a big roast or 2 smaller ones and make several other meals for the rest of the week or freeze and save for later! The slow cooker is on so why not fill it with yummy food?
  • Use 2 teaspoons dried thyme in place of fresh, if preferred.

This yields a very tender roast. Mine was done in 6 hours, and it fell apart when removing it from the cooker. I wished for a bit more flavor, and I believe that less liquid would help. I did brown the roast for better color before putting it in the crock.
