What could be more comforting than a sweet maple syrup-flavored chuck roast to celebrate the imminent arrival of fall? This slow-cooker recipe is perfect for flavoring up the house and giving you a treat!


  • 30 mL (2 tbsp.) onion powder
  • 5 mL (1 tsp.) garlic powder
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp.) Dijon mustard
  • 15 mL (1 tablespoon) chopped fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 boneless 900 g (2 lb) beef chuck roast
  • 15 mL (1 tbsp.) olive oil
  • 180 mL (3/4 cup) beef broth
  • 80 mL (1/3 cup) maple syrup
  • 1 onion, sliced into rings
  • 4 Nantes carrots, cut into pieces
  • 8 new potatoes
  • 1/2 small rutabaga, cut into cubes


  1. In a bowl, mix the onion powder with garlic powder, mustard, and thyme—season with salt and pepper.
  2. Remove excess fat from a chuck roast.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sear chuck roast for 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  4. Transfer the roast to a plate. Brush both sides of the roast with a mustard mixture.
  5. Place roast in the slow cooker. Add broth, maple syrup, and vegetables.
  6. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 9 hours, until meat flakes easily with a fork.

Tips for the Perfect Slow Cooker Pot Roast:

  • Choice of Meat: Opt for chuck or shoulder roast, which becomes tender and flavorful with slow cooking.
  • Searing is Essential: Don’t skip searing the meat before slow cooking. It locks in flavor and provides a beautiful color.
  • Herbs and Spices: Feel free to experiment with herbs and spices that suit your taste. Fresh herbs can also work wonderfully.
  • Slow and Steady: A slow cooker pot roast isn’t a dish to rush. Low and slow is the way to go for the best results.
  • Rest Your Roast: Allow the roast to rest before cutting into it. This keeps it juicy and tender.

This Slow Cooker Pot Roast is a comforting dish that fills your home with a tantalizing aroma and fills your belly with a rich, hearty meal. Join me again next time for more exciting recipes in the Ineskohl Kitchen. Until then, happy cooking!
