The Ultimate All Day Slow-Cooked Pot Roast

There’s a little town not too far from where we live that has the longest covered bridge west of the Mississippi.

Crock Pot Chuck Roast with Brown Gravy

kids playingHave you ever noticed that as things change in life – like when the weather of one season gives way to another, your thoughts drift back to other times and similar experiences? As a warm summer fades into the orange hues of autumn, we fondly recall romps through piles of leaves as children. It’s just nature’s way to keep us from freaking out – when we see lightning zip across a dark sky, we know it’s lightning, having seen it before.

Crock Pot Chuck Roast with Creamy Dripping Gravy

As pot roasts go, I really like a boneless chuck roast. It holds together well while slow-cooked in a crock pot and has a nice, beefy-flavor. That is not to say a chuck roast won’t cook up fork-tender – it will. Unless you take a fork and shred the roast, it will stay together. This is important – especially when transferring the roast from the crock pot to a serving platter. I would much rather serve nice big pieces of roast beef that you can really sink your teeth into than shredded meat more fit for a sandwich.
