"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."

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Season beef chuck roast with sea salt and black pepper; put into the crock of a slow cooker with onion quarters and garlic cloves. Pour beef broth and vegetable broth over the roast. Lay bay leaves and thyme atop the roast.
  2. Cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours.


  • 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.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

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...


I cut back on the onion and left out thyme, my family loved it!

Way too much broth for my liking but other than that it cane out tasty. Thanks.

Very basic recipe needs some extra spices but other than that good.
