I really enjoyed this recipe..mainly because it was easy! lol Sometimes you just want a really hearty stew without having to stand over a boiling hot pot all day! I cooked this beef chuck roast down in the crock pot for a total of 7 hours! It was extremely tender and moist.
Prep: 5 minutes. Crock pot cook time: 7 hours
- 2lbs of baby carrots
- 1 beef chuck roast ( 2lbs)
- 2 garlic gloves
- 1 teaspoon of thyme
- 3 stalks of celery diced
- 1/2 white onion coarsely chopped
- 6 potatoes peeled and cubed
- 3 cans of beef broth ( or you can use beef bouillon and water)
- 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
- salt and pepper to taste
Directions: I combined the beef broth, garlic, and onion and beef chuck roast in the crock pot and cooked them down for 4 hours before adding the vegetables. Once that has cooked down, add all your veggies and cook down for another 3 hours. I recommend also adding the thyme, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper just to give the veggies a good flavor.
Once your veggies are cooked through, serve- add parsley or thyme for garnish if you like. Simple as that!
