While I've been working the ten hour days this summer it's been difficult managing dinners after barely making it through the door before falling flat on my face and falling asleep. Although I'm not much into crock pot meals (most of the recipes I've tried through the years are just icky!), this one is a super simple and one that the guys just love - it's rugged man food and totally delicious!
Garlic Pepper Slow Cooker Chuck Roast
Because I have three guys in the house I buy two medium chuck roasts and stuff both into my slow cooker - no, I don't brown them or do any of that fancy stuff - believe me, sealing in the juices aren't necessary. With chuck roast you will need to be more concerned with your slow cooker overflowing because of all the juice it's marinating in while cooking.
Here's how I make it:
Stuff the roast(s) into the slow cooker, add a can of Dr. Pepper, a nice big rounded tablespoon of minced garlic - fresh is best but the ready minced kind in the jar will do, and a generous dousing of cracked black pepper. Cook for about eight hours on low. Remove beef from slow cooker, shred with two forks, removing any fat along the way. Serve as is with veggies, on rolls, or make gravy and serve over egg noodles. Eat and enjoy! :)
