How to Make Beef Roast Pot


  1. Season the roast: Pat the roast dry with paper towels. Season all sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Sear the roast: Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, sear the roast for 4 – 5 minutes on each side until well-browned. Transfer the beef to the bottom of the slow cooker. (Recommended slow cooker size: 6 or 7 quart.)
  3. Add vegetables: Arrange the carrots, potatoes, and onion around and on top of the roast in the slow cooker.
  4. Add remaining ingredients: Pour the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and bay leaf into the slow cooker. Depending on the size of your slow cooker, you may want to add ½ – 1 cup more broth (or water) so that the beef and vegetables are almost completely covered in liquid.


  1. Cook: Cover and cook on low for 8 – 9 hours or on high for 5 – 6 hours until the roast and vegetables are cooked through.

To serve:

  1. To serve: Remove the beef from the slow cooker. Shred the beef and discard any fat. Discard the bay leaf and serve the vegetables alongside the roast. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
  2. To make a gravy: Strain 2 cups of the broth from the slow cooker through a fine mesh strainer. Heat it over medium-high heat in a small saucepan until simmering. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the broth, stirring constantly for about 1 minute until thickened. Pour over the pot roast before serving or once plated.
