Slow Cooker Tomato Chuck Roast
Comfort Food Dinner

Slow cooker tomato chuck roast.... Had I not had that week, I most likely would switch it to braised short ribs instead.

Slow Cooker Tomato Chuck Roast

Prep Time: 15 Minutes   Inactive Cook Time: 4-8 Hours  Serving: 6



I still remember the week that I put this slow cooker recipe together. It was one of those weeks. The new boss just came on board on Monday. The next day was a farewell party of another guy at work on top of the food chain. My hubby was out of town 3 days for business.

My son, normally, has 3 extra-curricular. One of them was ending that week and a new one started in the same week. So, he ended up having 4 that week.

On top of that, we have a birthday party to attend. Wow...thinking about all these past events got me exhausted again. Even I am always good at separating work and personal life, I was exceptionally overwhelmed. All I knew was that I wanted to be back home and lounge on the couch and did nothing.

Does this sound familiar to you? If you are a stay-at-home mom or dad, it is even worse. 'Cos you need to take care of everybody 24/7.

Tips for Slow Cooker Tomato Chuck Roast

If your family is receptive to onion, I would recommend to add at least one more on top of what the recipe calls for. Believe me, after everything cooked down, you feel like there are just not enough vegetables in the crock pot.

The day I had this, I served it with steamed white rice. You can serve it with egg noodles, pasta, grit, polenta, rice or creamy mashed potatoes depending on your available time and preference.


Ingredients

3-3.5 Boneless Chuck Roast
2-3 Big Vidalia Onion (sliced)
2-28 ounces Can Diced Tomatoes with juice (I happened to have the kind with garlic, basil and oregano flavor canned tomatoes. You can buy other diced canned tomatoes. You can always compensate this flavor by adding 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano and 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
2 Dried Bay Leaves
2 tablespoons Tomato Paste (I use the one from the tube that I don't need to throw so much away, such as Amore All Natural Tomato Paste)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon Italian Seasonings (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
