Made with our premium, grass-fed, grain-finished beef raised right here on our Texas ranch, this recipe is sure to become a family favorite. Let's dive in and discover how simple it can be to create a flavorful and tender chuck roast right in your own kitchen.

Step 1: Prepare Your Chuck Roast

  • Remove the chuck roast from the packaging and pat it dry with paper towels.
  • Season the roast generously with salt, pepper, and any other desired seasonings. You can use a simple blend of garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika for added flavor.

Step 2: Brown the Roast (Optional)

  • While not necessary, browning the chuck roast before placing it in the crock pot can enhance the flavor and texture of the final dish.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add a small amount of oil.
  • Sear the chuck roast on all sides until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. This step adds depth of flavor to the roast.

Step 3: Prepare Your Crock Pot

  • Place the browned or un-browned chuck roast in the crock pot.
  • Add any aromatics you like, such as onions, garlic, carrots, and potatoes, to enhance the flavor of the dish.

Step 4: Add Liquid and Seasonings

  • Pour in enough beef broth or stock to partially cover the roast, about 1-2 cups depending on the size of your crock pot.
  • Season the liquid with additional salt, pepper, and herbs, such as rosemary or thyme, to taste.

Step 5: Cook Low and Slow

  • Cover the crock pot with the lid and cook the chuck roast on low heat for 8-10 hours or high heat for 4-6 hours, or until the meat is fork-tender and falls apart easily.
  • Resist the temptation to lift the lid during cooking, we know that is a hard task because it will smell delicious, but this will slow down the cooking process.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy

  • Once the chuck roast is cooked to perfection, remove it from the crock pot and transfer it to a serving platter.
  • Use two forks to shred the meat into bite-sized pieces.
  • Serve the tender and flavorful chuck roast alongside the cooked vegetables and a ladle of the delicious cooking liquid.
