I make a mean pot roast in various ways.  I have a Mexican chili version I use for tacos, I have a pot roast dip sandwich that includes pepperoncini and then my go to pot roast with horseradish sauce.  This recipe is new to me and I basically just made it up but avoided preservatives of any kind.

Ingredients:
Chuck Roast
2 carrots
1 parsnip
4 cloves of garlic
1 yellow onion
1 small sweet potato
diced tomatoes
1 cup of Red wine
2 qts Beef stock
2 tbs Balsamic Vinegar
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp thyme
Chili powder
Kosher Salt
Pepper
Penzey’s Beef Roast Seasoning

Directions:
Pretty easy but my key is to keep the roast under liquid at all times and to go low and slow (8hr minimum).
In a medium high heated skillet sear your salted and peppered chuck roast about 3-4 mins on all sides. You can see the crust below.

Dice up all veggies and put them into a slow cooker. Add your seared roast to the top. Deglaze your pan with red wine and add to crock pot. Add stock and spices until covered. Cook on high for 4 hours and then turn it to low and let it cook for another 4-7 hrs. You want it fall apart tender and flavorful. Season to taste.
