Slow Cooker Buttery Pot Roast

This is quite possibly the easiest recipe on the planet, and the finished product will literally melt in your mouth.  We like to serve this with roasted vegetables and a baked sweet potato, but the sky is the limit. 

Prep Time:
5 Minutes

Cook Time:
8 Hours

Ready In:
8 Hours 5 Minutes


  • 1 Large cut of beef that is suitable for a pot roast (I use chuck typically) and will fit in your crock pot
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper
  • sprig fresh rosemary (optional)


  1. Pat the roast dry with a paper towel. Coat with kosher salt and pepper on all sides and press firmly into meat.
  2. Sear roast over medium heat, preferably in a cast iron skillet (any skillet will do though), on all sides. This seals in the juices and makes the roast a deep golden brown.
  3. Add roast to a crock pot along with a sprig of rosemary. Set to Low and let cook for at least 8 hours. If cooking for only 6 hours, set heat to High.
  4. The longer you let this meat cook, the more tender and juicy it will be.
  5. * If you’d like to add carrots, onions, and potatoes to this roast it’s best to add them later (otherwise they’ll be mushy).
