I still remember the week that I put this slow cooker recipe together. It was one of those weeks which was way more hectic than usual, both in my personal and professional life. 

Even I am always good at separating work from my personal life, I was exceptionally overwhelmed that week. 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 because you need to take care of everybody 24/7.

I was grateful that this easy crock pot meal saved the day.  I got to go back home and enjoy a nice and homemade dinner.


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.

Easy Crock Pot Meal Recipe and Instructions


3-3.5 lbs (1.4-1.6kg) Boneless Chuck Roast
2-3 Big Vidalia Onion (sliced)
2 28oz (794g) 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
