A tried and true family favorite that's both easy to make and absolutely delicious! This fall apart pot roast recipe is fantastic comfort food, and cooking it in the crockpot really simplifies the process. Slow cooking an inexpensive pot roast both tenderizes the meat and infuse it with great flavor...the results are amazingly good.
"Once everything was in the crock pot i was worried about the little amount of liquid but i stuck with the recipe and it turned out fantastic!!! It made so much of its own juices it was amazing. We cooked it on high and after 8hrs it was ready! We have a saying in my family that food is so good it will knock your face off...this is definitely Knock Your Face Off Pot Roast!!! "- sgilley80

Combine roast, soy sauce, and garlic in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal bag, and marinate in refrigerator at least 8 hours, turning bag occasionally.
Bring stock to a boil in a small saucepan; add mushrooms. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 20 minutes. Drain mushrooms through a cheesecloth-lined colander over a bowl, reserving broth mixture.
Remove roast from bag, reserving marinade. Sprinkle roast with pepper, gently pressing pepper into roast. Combine reserved marinade, mushroom broth mixture, and tomato past; stir well, and set aside.
Place mushrooms, onion, carrot and potato in a 6-quart crockpot; toss gently.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and add roast, browning well on all sides. Place roast over vegetables in cooker. Pour tomato paste mixture into pan, scraping to loosen browned bits. Pour tomato paste mixture over roast and vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 10 hours or until roast is tender. Place roast and vetegables on a serving platter; keep warm. Reserve cooking liquid in cooker; increase heat to high.
Place flour in a bowl. Gradually add water, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Add flour mixture to cooking liquid in cooker. Cook, uncovered, 15 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring frequently. Serve gravy with roast and vegetables.

ArmyLife9184 7 months agoI just made this recipe. I omitted the tomato paste/sauce and added 1 can of cream of mushroom and 2 cups water. I also omitted the mushrooms. I also added sherry wine about 1 cup. Cooked on high for 7 hours. It is so far the best roast I've ever eaten.

sunilpatidar 1 year agowill definitely try this.
jdrew 1 year agoMy family and I loved this! I hadn't seen a pot roast recipe that called for marinating the meat in advance, but I'll be doing it this way from now on. I will say that I cooked it on low in the crockpot for only 4 hours and that was plenty! It was perfectly tender and not at all dry.
Counselordave 1 year agoGreat flavor! The gravy is a great enhancement. Will definitely make again.
keesag 2 years agoI made this by marinating overnight with Dale's seasoning (soy and other goodies) and garlic. Left out the mushrooms and veggies. After searing, to the crock with onions and beef. Used 1 1/2 cup of beef broth, 1 1/2 cup beer. This was fantastic as beef manhattan!
erins97 2 years agoReally yummy. A great fall back recipe when you want something hearty and home cooked. I liked the mushrooms in it, but my kids and husband weren't fans (they just don't like mushrooms!). I will omit them next time. It is definitely a recipe that I will add to my collection. Two thumbs up from me :)
Jessica611 2 years agoVery delicious. Skipped the mushrooms and used tomato sauce instead of tomato paste, turned great since it gave it more juices. Even my picky husband enjoyed it. Definitely will make it again.

Jmon9496 3 years agoWent to work and came home to an amazing dinner! The meat so was tender and great...will def. make again! Chopping up the stuff took a little bit but leaving in the crockpot for 10 hours worked out great!
u099573 3 years agoThis pot roast recipe was delicious and easy to make. The meat was tender and the flavors were great. Although it seems like alot of food, 4 adults and one pre-teen nearly finished it.
carlitotriboro 4 years agoSince I started the prep at 3 AM I was not in the mood to travel 12 miles to locate dried mushrooms, so I improvised and used 2 small cans and 8 oz's fresh mushrooms which I steeped in the broth (used the liquid from the cans also. My wife insisted I print and keep this recipe, which is quite a compliment as I have made pot roast (tylpicaly using more expensive bottom round)many times. I also pretty much doubled the recipe as there was a sale on buy one get one free chuck roast! I scooped out some of the veg's 3/4 of the way through so I could immerse the meat which was languishing on the top and was looking a bit dried up. That worked well as the meat was falling apart when the time was up.
