Slow Cooker Roast Beef



1 chuck roast (I used the cheapest one in the grocery store. It was about 4 pounds and cost me 12 dollars. You can get a nicer more tender roast if you’re that kind of person. I don’t judge.)
2 tbsp beef stock powder
1 1/2 cups red wine

Directions for Slow Cooker Roast Beef

1. Place roast in crock pot, I cooked my roast beef over mini carrots and mini potatoes. You can make it by itself, with chopped up sweet potatoes, with onions. The world is your oyster.
2. Sprinkle beef stock powder over roast
3. Pour wine over roast beef
4. Cook on low for 4 hours (or more if your roast beef is larger than mine.)
