Wednesdays Unplugged – Super Simple Chuck Roast

“When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this – you haven’t.” – Thomas Edison

NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It’s my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian ‘Quote Cup’ passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, along with an update and photos of what has been going on in our lives. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

This week was our last show of the Children’s Theater Company season… An American Tail, the musical. It was super fun because we got to go to a technical rehearsal on Sunday, then to our preview on Wednesday. This production is extra-special because it was a world premiere that CTC created from the ground up, in development for six years and it is still developing! The breadth of talent here never ceases to amaze me.


This recipe for crock pot chuck roast is unbelievably simple… just meat and seasoning in a crock pot. That’s it!!! It’s perfect for those busy days when you are going all day but want something hot and satisfying when you get home. It is only meat so you can serve it however you want… on buns, on rice, on mashed potatoes… It’s really good with the cucumber salad I posted a few weeks ago.

Super Simple Chuck Roast

  • 3-4 pound beef chuck roast
  • 2 tablespoons Montreal Steak Seasoning by McCormick

Rub seasoning into meat and place in crock pot. Add any remaining seasoning to the pot.

Cook for 8-10 hours on low or 5-6 hours on high.

That’s it!
