Is there a meal more boring and bland than crockpot pot roast? At least, that’s how our parents might have made it. Well this piece of beef is anything but bland. This Texas Roadhouse Pot Roast is PACKED with flavor. There will NOT be leftovers with this one.

It starts with a chuck roast… the classic pot roast cut. There’s no reason to mess with that – the chuck roast is one of the most flavorful and rich cuts of beef.

As for the instructions – basically the only work is to chop the vegetables. After that, you just kinda throw it all in the crockpot and turn it on.

I usually place the meat first, then vegetables, spices and finally the liquid ingredients.

The BBQ sauce is actually a mix of your standard cheap BBQ sauce and tomato sauce. It works really well in this.

About 8 hours later on low, and it looks and smells wonderful. Oh my goodness there is SOO much flavor in this.

for the potatoes, you can chop them up and put them in with all of the vegetables. Or if you prefer, use them to make mashed potatoes. The juices from the crockpot are amazing poured over mashed potatoes.
