Nerds, it’s winter, and I am NOT happy about it. Winter was so sluggish coming to Chicago with a lot of 50 degree days but not anymore. We have moved into the eternity stretch of below zero wind chill, snow, slippery ice, and so much darkness. Also known as my hermit series.
Cold winter months call for warm, hearty meals like this Slow Cooker Pot Roast. It has everything a comfort meal needs in my opinion – a savory and tender cut of meat, hearty potatoes, and a warm vegetable. I don’t need much else to feel content on a cold night. Plus, it is so easy to make. The longest part of prep is cleaning and cutting the potatoes and carrots.
- Beef Chuck Roast (mine was 3-4 lb)
- 1 lb carrots, peeled and cut into large chunks
- 2-3 lb potatoes, washed and cut into large chunks
- ¾ c beef broth
