This red wine beef pot roast is pure comfort food with almost no effort required. The red wine, seasoning, and chuck roast combine to create the most delicious and decadent sauce. You can serve it with the traditional potatoes and carrots or over mashed potatoes or cauliflower.
Pat the roast dry with paper towels. Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the beef, cooking for 2-3 minutes on all sides just to brown the exterior. Transfer the beef to the bowl of a slow cooker.
Season the beef with salt and pepper. Add the onion soup mix and italian seasoning.
Pour the wine over the beef.
Arrange the carrots and potatoes in the crock pot around the roast. Cut the butter into pieces and place them on top of the beef.
Cook on low for 8 hours. When cooking is complete, carefully use a fork to break the meat apart, then gently stir to coat the beef and vegetables with the sauce.
