  • 5 pounds chuck roast
  • 6 whole yukon gold potatoes quartered
  • 6 whole carrots peeled and cut into thick rounds
  • 3 whole onions thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves roasted garlic *see note
  • 1 large sprig fresh rosemary leaves roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup canned beef consommé
  • 1/4 cup HP sauce or ketchup
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  1. Get out your trusty slow cooker. Then take the chuck roast and trim any excess fat. Lay the beef out in the bottom of the slow cooker, then pile the potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic and rosemary on top of it. Then stir the beef consommé, HP sauce or ketchup, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper together in a bowl and pour it into the crock pot. Seal the slow cooker with its lid and cook everything on low for 8 hours. Then serve immediately!
Recipe Notes

*roast a head of garlic ahead of time. It's easy! First, pre-heat the oven to 375. Cut the top of the head off to reveal the cloves and drizzle the tops of the cloves with olive oil on top. Sprinkle it with salt as well, then wrap it in foil. Roast it for an hour. Then refrigerate it and use it as you need it!
