This may sound a little odd coming from a vegetarian, but pot roast is hands down my favorite meal to make! Not only is it ridiculously easy and completely foolproof, not to mention a one-pot slow cooker meal that you can set and forget, but it always gets RAVE reviews. As in not just “oh this is yummy” good but “oh my gosh this is the best thing I’ve ever tasted” good. It is a great way to feed a crowd without much effort, and although it takes just a few minutes of hands-on time and makes the perfect weeknight meal, it also tastes special enough to serve for a holiday meal or Sunday dinner.

To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the marinade & beef into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required! Making it ahead of time is not necessary, though, as it is equally delicious made the same day.

Perfect 5 Ingredient Pot Roast

Assemble your ingredients: Chuck roast, red wine, black pepper, onions, beef stock, salt, and baby potatoes.

Here is what you need:

2 sweet onions
10 whole cloves of garlic, peeled
4 cups beef broth
4 cups red wine( or extra beef broth, if you don’t want to use wine)
2 3-4 lb chuck roast
salt & pepper to taste (optional)
carrots & potatoes (optional: for cooking day only)
 

Peel onions and quarter into wedges.

Step 1: Peel onions and quarter into wedges.

Whisk together broth and wine in a bowl.

Step 2: Whisk together broth & wine; add salt & pepper to taste (I added about ½ teaspoon of pepper & a teaspoon of salt).

Add meat and vegetables to a large freezer bag and pout wine broth mixture over the meat.

Step 3: Divide chuck roasts into 2 gallon freezer size bags. (Be sure to label bags first!) Divide onion and garlic into two bags with chuck roast, then divide broth mixture over meat. Press air from bag, seal, & freeze.

On cooking day place the marinated meat, sauce, carrots, and potatoes in the slow cooker.
