My very favorite slow cooker recipes are the ones that take the least amount of preparation.
On busy mornings, I just want to throw it in the slow cooker and go.
I recently updated this recipe and photos to start with searing. This step is great and gives it added color and flavor, but it’s not required if you are in a hurry!
Start with a good quality cut of boneless chuck roast. A good quality cut will have a nice amount of fat that will render out in the slow cooker without being overly fatty.
For very best results, use a fresh chuck roast you have not frozen. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours, or until tender.
