Set-it-and-Forget-it-Roast Recipe

Chuck roasts are incredibly tender and juicy when cooked low and slow. Cooking roasts in the crockpot are an easy way to ensure a delicious and nutritious meal. This stew can be made with about any combination of vegetables you have on hand and prefer. This can be pre-made the night before, or the morning of. Before heading to work simply turn the switch to "low" and savory one-dish meal will be awaiting your evening return.


  • 2-3 lb beef roast (Chuck, Arm, or Rump) or pork roast (Shoulder, Loin, or Butt)
  • 4-6 C chopped vegetables of choice (beets, carrots, celery, garlic, onion, parsnips, etc.)
