This smothered Slow Cooked Roast with Creamy Mushroom Gravy is comfort food personified. Seasoned to perfection a chuck roast is braised in a slow cooker until the meat is succulent and fall apart tender. I like to add fresh baby carrots and sweet pearl onions to round out the flavor palate with little fuss. After letting the roast simmer all day long supper will be ready when you are and the house smells spectacular, too.
Slow Cooked Roast with Creamy Mushroom Gravy
Slow Cooked Roast with Mushroom Gravy is Comfort Food
Using your slow cooker to make inexpensive cuts of meat like chuck roasts, puts the magic in the flavor and gives it the most tender texture. Slow cooking allows you to turn many cheaper cuts of meat into fall apart deliciousness. I make several variations of slow cooked roasts these days but, this one tops my list and it's super simple. We enjoy this meal with mashed potatoes but if you prefer, chunks of potatoes can also be added to the slow cooker along with the pearl onions and carrots transforming it into a comforting one pot meal. Another roast recipe you may like to try is this Crockpot Cajun Beef Roast, from The Southern Lady Cooks.
