Crock-Pot Beef Pot Roast (GLUTEN-FREE & DAIRY-FREE)

I have been making pot-roast forever, I think since I first moved out of my house at 18 years old, when I received my first crock-pot and I know I've never been without once since. I have made my grandma's recipe over a zillion times. Well, my grandma's tried and true recipe is still delicious, but my GLUTEN-FREE daughter can no longer have this delicious recipe. So, where else did I choose to look, of course my trusty bloggers. I came across this new-to-me blog a few weeks ago A Year of Slow Cooking and I am really excited about trying a few more GLUTEN-FREE recipes from there. But, back to the Pot-Roast, this receipe is OUT-OF-THIS world. I just LOVE-LOVE the recipe and I will be making this again and again and again. And YAHOOOO my daughter can have it too! It's GLUTEN-FREE and DAIRY-FREE.

Beef Pot Roast in Crock-Pot
adapted original recipe idea from A Year of Slow Cooking

4 lbs Beef Shoulder Roast or Chuck Roast
2 onions, sliced in rings
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup ketchup
2 cups beef broth
2 cups baby carrots
4 small potatoes, cut in large cubes
1 can peas

In your crock-pot lay the meat in first and then add the onion rings on top. In a separate bowl mix together the brown sugar, apple cider and ketchup, pour on top of meat. Toss in carrots and potatoes. Pour beef broth evenly over roast mixtures. Cover and cook for 6 to 8 hours on low, or until meat will shredded with ease with a fork.  (tough meat means you didn't cook long enough) Add the peas in just before serving (about 15 minutes just to get them hot, you don't want them to turn to mush)

  10. Found your recipe while searching for ideas to make a yummy dish for a friend... love the combo of ingredients and can't wait to deliver to them. Thanks for sharing!!

  11. My granddaughter is celiac..which is more strict with cross contamination than someone who needs or wants to eat gluten you have a list of foods that are celiac accepted? I will make your crock pot beef dish today, it sounds delicious but because I don't always cook gluten free I don't know if brown sugar is gluten free? All catsup's ? Certain brand of beef broth?

    Thank you!

    1. You definitely need to look for gluten free beef broth, since many brands contain gluten. I like Kitchen Basics.

    2. Hey Publix has three or four brands of GFCF beef broth. Additionally, Better than bouillon makes a great bouillon alternative for a quick fix...must be refrigerated after opening :)

  12. I added your blog to my favorites! I have a lot of food sensitivities and I can't have a lot of things. Thanks for taking the time to post! Helps me alot that I don't have to spend all day trying to think up recipies that both me and my family can eat together!

  13. I am trying this tonight! We are new to the gluten free diet. My almost 6 year old daughter was diagnosed about 2 to 3 months ago! This sounds amazing!
