This is a fun change up to our normal pot roast routine! It had a lovely flavor from all the delicious add-ins, and the only thing I wished I'd done differently was thrown some potatoes in the pot so it could cook in the seasoned liquid and round out the meal. My sister insists potatoes wouldn't be very Italian - but I think it would taste wonderful. 

I love that a dish like this can be pulled together in no time at all, thanks to a handful of ingredients pulled straight from the pantry.

Italian Pot Roast

4 lbs chuck roast
1 16-oz jar roasted red peppers
1 14-oz can artichoke hearts, drained
4-oz sundried tomatoes (jarred, with oil)
2 whole onions, peeled and diced
14-oz can beef broth
1 heaping TBS minced garlic (jarred)

  1. Place roast in a crock pot and add remaining ingredients to the pot, stirring gently to combine.
  2. Cook on high 4-5 hours or low for 8, until beef is very tender.
  3. Serve meat with veggies over mashed potatoes, pasta, or rice if desired. Or serve stew like with the broth.
  4. You can also remove broth from the crockpot, skim the fat, and heat on the stove with a cornstarch or flour slurry and thicken into a gravy to serve, if desired.
  5. If you are serving with the broth, or turning it into gravy, feel free to add some red wine and adjust the seasonings to taste, before serving!

  1. Love pot roast and always happy for another easy peasy recipe. Thanks Rebekah.

  2. This looks SO delicious. I can't wait to try it, Rebekah.

  3. How can there only be a few ingredients in this? It almost looks too good to be true! Definitely going to have to give it a try!

  4. What a great way to add flavor to a pot roast! I'd say next time throw in some potatoes and call it Italian-inspired pot roast. I'm all about easy. On the other hand, I love your suggestion of serving with mashed potatoes.

  5. Hey, if Italians have gnocchi, then they must have potatoes!

  6. I would serve this with potatoes. Either on mashed or with the ones cooked with the beef. I don't bother to stand on protocol if a thing is delicious. And potatoes with this would be!

  7. Love it! artichokes and sundried tomatoes..mmm adds aton of flavor. Yummy!

  8. Delicious and lip smacking pot roast.. yum!!
