Chuck Roast With Vegetables Slow Cooker Recipe

This is an easy and delicious recipe for cooking a roast in your crockpot or slow cooker. The roast is tender and nearly falls to pieces. There's plenty of tasty gravy too.

The vegetables are added when there is approximately 2 1/2 to 3 hours cooking time left. If you won't be available to add the vegetables at that time, don't worry. You can use the gravy to serve with mashed potatoes or over cooked noodles. I like to cook my egg noodles just before I plan to remove the roast and vegetables. Once the roast and vegetables have been placed on a platter, I add the noodles to the gravy just to let them absorb extra flavor.

Chuck Roast with Vegetables Slow Cooker Recipe


3-4 lbs. chuck roast
6 potatoes, quartered
4 carrots, cut into 1" pieces
3 stalks celery, cut into 1 1/2" pieces
2 large onions, quartered
1 can cream of mushroom soup or cream of celery soup
1/2 soup can water
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
Flour or cornstarch for thickening


Mix soup, water, pepper and salt together in the slow cooker.

In a large skillet, sear the roast on each side using a small amount of oil before adding to slow cooker, or place directly in soup mixture in slow cooker. Make sure both sides of roast have been coated with soup mixture. Set slow cooker to low and let cook for 4 hours.

After 4 hours, add potatoes, carrots, celery and onions to the cooker. Lift roast so vegetables are submerged in soup mixture. Continue cooking on low for another 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until roast is tender and vegetables are done.

Remove roast and vegetables to a platter. Add small amounts of flour or cornstarch to soup mixture to thicken slightly. Serve gravy over roast and vegetables, or over mashed potatoes or cooked egg noodles.

Overall cooking time is 6 1/2 to 7 hours on low setting.
