  • Summary

    This Italian-style pot roast requires a little bit of prep work prior to putting it in the slow cooker, but the robust flavor and juicy, fork-tender results are worth the initial effort. We like it sliced and served over our Creamy, Cheesy Soft Polenta as a tasty change from potatoes. A glass of red wine and a salad are all you need to complete the meal.

    Ingredients

    • 2 to 2-1/2 lb chuck roast
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • Olive oil
    • 2 (1/4-inch thick) slices pancetta, diced
    • 4 to 5 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1 large onion, chopped (about 2 cups)
    • 6 to 8 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
    • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • 1/2 to 3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    • Chopped parsley for garnish
