SImple Crock Pot Roast and Gravy |

Simple Crock Pot Roast and Gravy

  • Author: Laura
  • Total Time: 8 hours 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings 1x


  • 23 lb beef chuck roast
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) beef broth
  • slurry of either flour and water or cornstarch and water, **see notes


  1. Sprinkle roast with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add to the crock pot and pour the beef broth around the roast.
  2. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or until beef easily shreds with a fork. Remove roast from the crockpot and shred beef.
  3. To prepare the gravy, add the juices from the crock pot to a sauce pan.  Cook until hot. Slowly add in a slurry of water and flour or water and cornstarch.  Add enough to reach the desired consistency. Serve with the roast.


  • To make a cornstarch slurry, whisk together 1/4 cup water with 2 Tbsp cornstarch until smooth and well blended.
  • To make a flour slurry, add 1/2 cup water with 3-4 Tbsp water and whisk together until smooth and lump free. I prefer to mix it in a blender bottle.
