So far, we’ve shared recipes for caramel-dipped apples and butternut squash soup, given away two slow cooker gift baskets and our Best of the Best Slow Cooker Recipes contest has been popular on Facebook as people vote for their favorite recipes. Speaking of the best slow cooker recipes, did you know that our most viewed recipe of all time on HamiltonBeach.com is for our Beef Pot Roast? It’s no surprise, as pot roast is an all-American classic, much like baseball and apple pie. 

Today, we have another awesome gift basket giveaway and our most popular recipe. Scroll down to enter to win! We hope you enjoy the pot roast as much as we do.

Beef Pot Roast

Make this delicious and hearty beef pot roast in any 5-6 Quart Slow Cooker. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve your family this easy dinner that will be loved by everyone.
3 to 4-pound chuck pot roast
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 to 4 medium potatoes, quartered
3 to 4 carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 medium onions, quartered
1/2 cup beef broth
Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper.
Place half of vegetables in bottom of slow cooker crock, top with roast, then add remaining vegetables and liquid.
Cover and cook 5 hours on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW.
Half of a 1 lb. bag of baby carrots can be used instead of 3-4 medium carrots. A long cooking time in moist heat will tenderize a tougher cut of meat. Therefore, using a lower-priced cut, such as chuck, is economical as well as delicious.

      Hi Lori, what a great question! No, you don’t have to cover the meat with liquid when you make pot roast. Happy cooking!
