Sweet & Tangy Beef Roast

We love classic pot roasts, but for the days when you feel like mixing it up, try this flavor-packed roast recipe instead. 

Sweet & Tangy Beef Roast

For the Roast: 

  • 1 chuck roast - 3 to 4 pounds (or any of our other roasts will work)
  • Salt & pepper
  • 3-4 cloves minced garlic (or garlic powder)

For the Sauce:

  • 1 cup tomato paste (thick tomato sauce also works)
  • ½ cup broth of choice
  • 3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

To Thicken the Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)
  • ¼ cup water


Add several tablespoons of cooking oil to a pre-heated skillet over med-high heat and sear the roast on all sides until golden brown.

Season the roast on both sides with salt & pepper and then place it in a slow cooker with the minced garlic on top.

Whisk together all of the sauce ingredients and pour over the roast.

Cook on low for 8-9 hours, or until fork tender.

If you’d like a thicker, gravy-like sauce, whisk together the arrowroot powder and water, then pour into the warm sauce and stir until smooth. Turn your crockpot on high for 4-5 minutes until the sauce thickens.

Enjoy your roast alongside rice or potatoes, or serve on buns as shredded beef sandwiches.
