Prep Time
15 Minutes
Cook Time
9-10 Hours (Low)


  • 1 Onion
  • 1 lb Baby Carrots
  • 4 lb Boneless Beef Chuck Roast
  • 28 oz Can Crushed Tomatoes
  • 3 Cups Beef Stock
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic
  • 1-1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1-1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Basil
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 8 Red Potatoes
  • 10 Fresh Basil Leaves



  1. Layer onions, garlic and carrots on the bottom of your crock pot bowl. Season roast with salt and pepper and place on top of vegetables in cooker. Place the potatoes around the roast; cut in half if need be.

  2. In a bowl mix together the beef stock, basil, oregano, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and half of the crushed tomatoes. Pour the mixture over top the roast. Take the remaining crushed tomatoes and spread out on top of the roast. Place the fresh basil leaves in the crushed tomatoes.

  3. Cover and cook on LOW 9-10 hours.

  4. When done, the roast will just fall apart so itโ€™s best to use 2 large slotted serving spoon or spatulas to remove. Allow to rest for 5 minutes on a serving platter. Remove the potatoes and carrots to the platter. Strain the broth and reserve for another recipe.
