  • Lightly grease the slow cooker insert.
  • Place the roast in the bottom of the crockpot.
  • Wash the veggies and peel as desired. I left my potato skins on but not the carrots. It's a personal choice, you do as you prefer.
  • Cut the potatoes, onions, and carrots into fairly large chunks or slices and place in a slow cooker.
  • Pour the beef stock over the top and sprinkle with the seasonings.
  • Cover, and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or High for 4 to 5 hours.

Freezer Meal Prep

  • Place the beef roast in a large zippable freezer bag.
  • Add your vegetables and sprinkle with the seasonings. (See notes here about potatoes)
  • Pour the broth over the top. 
  • Lay flat to freeze and defrost overnight before cooking


If your roast came wrapped, you'll need to remove that before slicing it.
Serve the roast sliced with onions on top with potatoes and carrots on the side.
Fresh parsley, thyme or minced chives makes a pretty and flavorful garnish for the top IF you're going for presentation.
