Tender Chuck Roast
- 2 lb chuck roast (using the right cut of meat is going to be essential to how your roast turns out! Any cut from the chuck should work.)
- 1 (1.25 oz) package onion soup mix
- Garlic powder (about 1 tsp)
- Liquid smoke (about 2 tsp)
1. Take your roast and cut off any excess fat.
2. Lay it on a piece of foil and rub on all sides with the onion soup mix, garlic powder and liquid smoke.
3. Wrap up the roast tightly in 3 layers of foil.
4. Refrigerate overnight.
5. Place roast (still in foil) in slow cooker. Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours.
6. Carefully remove the foil and use a fork to shred, if desired. Salt and pepper to taste and eat!
I am so excited about this new method (new to me, at least) of using foil. The roast was absolutely perfect. Keeping the roast in the foil kept it tender and moist. You could definitely use different seasonings if you desire (rosemary, kosher salt, onion powder, freshly pressed garlic, etc.). But I think the two keys of success in this recipe were 1. Using a chuck roast (which is the best type of roast to use in the slow cooker) and 2. Wrapping it in the foil.
