Beef Pot Roast Tutorial April 21, 2012

Since I’ve started this blog, I have received a few comments from other beginners in the kitchen regarding their concerns on how to make a meal. Today I’m going to show you how easy it is to make a well-balanced meal with hardly any effort at all!


There are no required ingredients for this recipe, except the beef, of course, so just have fun with it. Also, depending on the size of your CrockPot, the amount of ingredients will vary. I made the pot roast the way my mom usually makes it with a few ingredients and lots of seasoning.



  • 1 Chuck Roast
  • 8 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 4 Celery pieces
  • Carrots
  • Red Wine
  • Water
  • Garlic & Seasonings
