  • Heat olive oil in a pan on the stove. Season roast with salt and pepper. Sear the roast for 5-6 minutes on each side until browned. The roast shouldn’t be cooked through but should have a nice crust.
  • In the last 2-3 minutes you can add your onion and garlic to the pan to saute with the roast or just add them into the crockpot raw.
  • While the roast is browning, add carrots, potatoes and broth to the crockpot.
  • Add the seared roast, onions and garlic on top of the carrots/potatoes.
  • Sprinkle with dried thyme.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-10 hours until potatoes are fork tender. (Or high for 4-6 hours. Low is recommended)
  • The pot roast should fall apart easily with a fork or tongs
