1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1 yellow onion, cut into large chunks

4 carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

2 sprigs fresh thyme

2 bay leaves

30 fl oz. beef broth

For gravy:

2 tbsp. Arrowroot powder

3 tbsp. Water

How to Prepare

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Season both sides of the beef chuck roast with salt and pepper, place into the hot skillet and sear for 4-5 minutes, browning each side of the roasting joint. Transfer the roast to the bowl of the slow cooker.

Add the garlic, onion, carrots, celery, potatoes, rosemary, thyme, and bay leaves to the slow cooker. Pour over the beef broth, cover with a lid and cook on LOW for 8 hours or on HIGH for 6 hours.

Once cooked, remove the sprigs of rosemary, thyme, and the bay leaves. Then remove the roast and shred the meat using 2 forks.

Mix the arrowroot and water together in a small bowl and stir to combine. Add the mixture to the slow cooker and stir everything together until the gravy starts to thicken.

Serve the meat and vegetables on a platter pouring over some of the gravy.
