Crockpot Roast, Potatoes, Carrots

Crockpot Roast, Potatoes, and Carrots are such a comforting meal! This is a staple fall and winter meal that my whole family loves! My favorite type of roast is a chuck roast! Sometimes we put the potatoes in the crockpot with the roast and sometimes we make mashed potatoes.


  • 1 Chuck Roast (3-4 pounds)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 brown gravy packet
  • 1 ranch seasoning packet
  • salt, pepper, and garlic powder
  • 1 tsp each of garlic powder and paprika
  • 1 onion (sliced)
  • 2 cups of baby carrots
  • 24 oz baby potatoes (washed and sliced in half)
  • 2 cups of beef broth

How to Make Crockpot Roast, Potatoes, and Carrots

To make the crockpot roast, potatoes, and carrots start by heating a large skillet over medium high heat and add some olive oil to the skillet.

Next, season all sides of the roast with salt and pepper. Sear the roast in the hot skillet on all sides. Once all sides have been seared put the roast in a large crockpot that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Next, turn the heat down to low and add 2 cups of beef broth stirring well and scraping all of the little bits off the bottom of the skillet. Add the brown gravy packet, ranch packets, garlic powder, and paprika. Stir this together well and let bubble until the gravy starts to thicken.

While the broth is bubbling on the stove, add the baby carrots, sliced onions, and baby potatoes to the crockpot. I like to wash the baby potatoes and slice them in half. I also try to make sure the potatoes are on the sides around the roast and top the roast with the carrots and onions.

Pour the beef broth/seasoning mixture over the roast and veggies in the crockpot. Add the lid to the crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours or until the meat is fall apart tender!

Serve Roast, Potatoes, and Carrots

To serve the roast, I like to take all the meat out of the crockpot and shred it with two forks. I like to discard any of the pieces of fat that I see.

Once the meat has been shredded it’s time to eat! We usually have rolls with this meal! You could add another veggie like some corn or a salad. Macaroni and cheese would also be a good side.

Sometimes I like to use the drippings in the crockpot to make a brown gravy! 
Add 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp of flour to a pan over medium heat to make a rue. Once the butter and flour has combined and thickened add 1 1/2 cups of the juices from the crockpot. Keep stirring until it thickens.

    It was delicious! I added some chili powder to my meat and I also seared it with all the seasonings on it instead of after seating. Either way I’m betting it would still be awesome! I will make it again !

    Just made this tonight for Sunday dinner. It was amazing! Searing the roast in a cast iron skillet is definitely the way to go. I seasoned the meat with all the seasonings in this recipe then seared it. Didn’t have a ranch seasoning packet but it turned out great anyway. Due to lack of time, I cooked this on high for 2 hours then on low for 5 1/2 hours. The meat shredded easily and the potatoes and carrots were perfectly done. Will absolutely use this recipe from now on 😊

    Absolutely delicious. The roast was a huge hit with the whole family. All my roasts have come out dry, and this one was juicy and great flavor.
