This amazing brown gravy pot roast is seasoned to perfection, and then cooked low and slow in the slow-cooker. The pot roast is fork tender, and full of flavor.
What makes this the most amazing brown gravy pot roast you ask?! Well, simply put, the flavors are absolutely amazing! There are millions of different variations of pot roast available online. However, this amazing brown gravy pot roast sets itself apart from the rest. It has been handed down generation to generation in my family, so it is a tried and true recipe.
First off, any meal that you can “set it and forget it,” is already a winner in my eyes! My slow-cooker gets a lot of play time during fall. Which is another reason why this is a beautiful recipe. Place it in the slow cooker, and several hours later you come home to a house that smells wonderful, and a meal that’s ready to go!
Another staple that makes this pot roast so amazing, is that you are cooking it right in the gravy. Since the meat simmers and tenderizes in the gravy for several hours, it allows it to absorb all of the delicious flavors. Furthermore, the robust seasonings we add directly to the pot roast before searing it, add more amazing flavors.

Virtually anything that can help soak up that delicious gravy that the roast is swimming in would make for an amazing side dish.
How to make this Amazing Brown Gravy Pot Roast:
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet (cast iron skillet works best). Evenly distribute the seasoning on all sides of the chuck roast with all of the seasonings, except the rosemary.
- Add the roast to the skillet and sear it on all sides until a nice brown crust forms.
- Once the pot roast is browned on all sides, place it into the slow cooker. Add the onions, celery, and carrots on top of the roast.
- Prepare the brown gravy according to package directions. I like the McCormick brand brown gravy mix becauses it does not contain MSG, and has a wonderful flavor; however, any brand will work.
- Pour the gravy over the top of the vegetables and the roast. Add the red wine, and Worcestershire sauce into the slow cooker. Red wine can be omitted, but it adds a very rich flavor to the gravy.
- Turn the heat to low for 8 hours, or high for 6 hours.
After a long days work, you will come home to the most wonderful smelling house! The aroma of an amazing brown gravy pot roast will be wafting through the air.
