My Italian Beef Pot Roast ~ Slow Cooker Beef Dinner Recipe


I call this my Italian pot roast. A rich
hearty meal that can be done in the slow cooker or oven. I’m Tess and welcome to
my kitchen. I’ve made this recipe so many different
ways over the years. This Italian pot roast is so rich and satisfying that it
will feed a hungry crew. It is a great way to use leftover
veggies and you can serve with pasta, rice, potatoes or I’ve even served over a
thick piece of toasted garlic parmesan bread. In my cast-iron pan on medium-high I
am adding some avocado oil and about a 3-pound beef chuck roast. I trimmed most of
the outer fat and seasoned the side down with some salt and black pepper. I’m
doing the same with this side. I’m cooking each side for about two to three
minutes to get a good sear and lock in those juices. This will add a tremendous
amount of flavor to the dish. Once each side has a nice crust i’m
removing from the pan and setting to the side. Remember not to throw away the
juices. You can find this recipe and a list of
ingredients in the description box below. I’m making this in my slow cooker and
cooking on high for about four to five hours but you can also do this in a
325 degree oven for about three to four hours. Just keep checking and basting the
roast with the sauce every hour or so. In my slow cooker I have one can of
tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes. In goes some tomato paste, a little sugar to
counter the acidity, and some black pepper. And now for my seasonings. I’m
adding some Italian seasonings, oregano, basil and a little marjoram. I really
like the taste of marjoram with the beef. A good healthy dose of minced
garlic and I have some fresh chopped parsley on hand. This might seem like a lot of seasonings
but I have a lot of veggies and meat to flavor. And then goes in my vegetables. I
have one very large sliced onion, some roughly chopped celery with the tops and
I have some leftover sliced bell peppers, mushrooms and baby carrots. You can use whatever veggies you like or have on hand. If you like this italian beef pot
roast recipe please remember to give me a Thumbs Up, Subscribe and leave a
Comment below. You can also find me and more of what I’m cooking on Facebook and Tess Cooks4u blog. Giving that a general but good toss to make sure
everything is well coated. On top goes the beef roast and don’t forget all
those good pan juices! Just going to toss some of the sauce and veggies on top as much as
I can. As this cooks, the roast will cook down into the sauce and eventually will
be submerged. I will check on it and give it a good stir every hour or so. And this is the italian pot roast after
four and a half hours! The kitchen smells amazing! As you can see the roast is done
and falling apart. Going to take the roast out and let it rest for about 15
minutes and we will fix a plate. Depending on how fatty your beef roast
is you may need to skim off some excess fat or you can let this cool, refrigerate and then skim off the excess
fat. You saw how fatty my chuck roast was in the middle and I just had a little
too skim after refrigerating. Not much at all. Serving tonight with rice. This is an
easy rich and hearty dinner. I hope you give this one a try. Enjoy! And thanks so much for joining me here
in my kitchen. You can subscribe here for my future video recipes and remember to
