the best sunday pot roast

The best beef sunday pot roast from a slow cooker, with carrots and wine.

When it is snowy and cold outside, sometimes there is nothing better than an easy slow cooker meal that fills the house with a sweet and savory aroma that lasts all day long. I love pot roast meals, and have tinkered with my favorite flavors over the past year to come up with my final (and in my view, *the best*) recipe.

I don't feel like you need to sear the meat before adding it to the slow cooker, so I skip the step to make it incredibly easy to make. I like to serve it with polenta or cauliflower rice, but I'm sure any side would be absolutely delicious.


Servings: 4-6 people

Time: 8 hours + 5 minutes


  • Approximately 2 lbs of chuck roast

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 3 tbsp brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tbsp fish sauce (don't worry -- it won't taste fishy. Promise!)

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

  • 2 tsp sriracha

  • 1 tsp onion powder

  • 2 beef bouillon cubes

  • Salt and pepper

  • Cooking spray or 1/2 tsp oil


  1. Spray the bottom of the slow cooker with cooking spray or grease with a small amount of oil.

  2. Lightly season the chuck roast with salt and pepper and place into the slow cooker.

  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir.

  4. Cook on low for 8 hours.

  5. Enjoy!
