  • 1 medium onion halved and sliced
  • 1 medium red pepper sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper sliced
  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast pot roast, about 2 1/2 to 3 pounds
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup beef stock low-sodium preferred
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper


  • Add onion and peppers to the bottom of a 4-6 quart slow cooker. Place the meat on top the vegetables. Stir together the Worcestershire, stock, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Pour over the meat in the crockpot.
  • Cover and cook on low 8 hours. Stir to break up the meat.
  • Serve over rice, pasta, or on hoagie rolls as sandwiches.



  • I don’t brown the beef before adding it to the slow cooker. I find it’s just as delicious without this extra step! But if you want brown your meat first you can do that in a large pot on the stove. Once it’s browned, add some beef stock and scrape up all the brown stuff stuck to the bottom of pan. Pour it all into the slow cooker with the rest of the sauce. 
  • I don’t salt the beef because the Worcestershire sauce has plenty of salt in it and will season the beef as it cooks.
  • I recommend using low-sodium beef stock so your beef and peppers isn’t too salty.
  • While the beef is cooking don’t open the slow cooker. You don’t need to stir it and taking the lid off means you’ll need to add extra cooking time.
  • The chuck roast goes on top of the vegetables. It's always important to put the vegetables on the bottom of the slow cooker so that the meat has someplace to sit.
