An Tender Pot Roast Recipe

Coming home to a pot roast dinner that’s been cooking away in your kitchen all day is one of the best things ever. Just the smell alone when you walk in the door can’t be beat – then when you slice it and take a bite…it’s pretty amazing.

We’ve made Mississippi Pot Roast a couple of times before with the pepperoncini peppers and it’s awesome, but for this Slow Cooker Jersey Pot Roast we wanted to give it an Italian twist – straight out of Jersey.

We wanted to keep this pot roast recipe easy, so there’s not a lot of ingredients going on here. Just tomato sauce, seasonings, onions and peppers. The peppers and onions cook down in the tomato sauce and flavor the gravy in the most delicious way ever.

This Slow Cooker Jersey Pot Roast is super tender, but still sliceable!

How Do You Make Slow Cooker Jersey Pot Roast

Again this pot roast recipe is so easy, you’ll be making it all the time. Just mix powdered brown gravy mix and Italian dressing mix together with tomato sauce. That’s going to become the gravy for the pot roast.

Sear a chuck roast on all sides in a dutch oven or skillet until it’s nicely browned. For the best flavor, make sure you generously season the chuck roast first and then sear it very well on all sides. That nice brown color is what’s going to give this pot roast the best flavor.

This Slow Cooker Jersey Pot Roast is my twist on pot roast, Jersey style!

Now just add the seared chuck roast and the tomato sauce to your crock pot and let it cook for 8 hours on low. That’s it! All that’s left to do is slice and serve. Also another thing we love about this Slow Cooker Jersey Pot Roast, it’s super tender but also holds together enough so that you can still slice it and serve it on a platter.
