The Slow Cook Pot Chuck Roast recipe offers a simple yet hearty comfort food option that can be easily prepared at home. This dish is both filling and flavorful, making it a perfect choice for a satisfying meal. The recipe is versatile and can be adapted for classic oven braising, as well as for use in a slow cooker or Instant Pot.

To begin, a chuck roast weighing 5 pounds is seasoned with a combination of salt, pepper, flour, and half a package of onion soup mix. The roast is then laid in the cooking vessel (whether a crock pot, oven, or Instant Pot) along with halved potatoes, bite-sized carrot pieces, quartered onion, and smashed garlic cloves. Chicken broth is added to provide moisture and flavor. The cooking process involves setting the crock pot to high and allowing it to cook for 5 hours.

Once the roast is cooked to perfection, a separate frying pan is used to sauté mushrooms in butter until they reach a soft texture. These mushrooms are then added on top of the roast, enhancing the overall flavor profile of the dish. Additionally, the juices remaining in the crock pot can be utilized to make a savory gravy, which can be poured over the roast for added richness.
