Slap’s Beef Pot Roast
Nothing screams, “feel good food” more than a pot roast. Follow this easy recipe for a delicious beef pot roast the whole family will enjoy.
- 3 - 4 lbs beef chuck roast, boneless
- 12 cloves garlic, halved and divided
- 3 Tbsp. Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, quartered
- 1 bell pepper, chopped into chunks
- 10 whole carrots, peeled
- 1/2 cup water
- 8 small red potatoes, rinsed
- 2 sprigs of thyme
- Preheat oven at 350°
- Make 12 small cuts in roast just deep enough to insert half a clove of garlic (being careful not to pierce through the bottom). Insert half of garlic into cuts. Sprinkle both sides of roast with 2 tablespoons Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning.
- In a large Dutch oven, heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat until almost smoking. Carefully add roast; cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove roast, and set aside. ( Some garlic will fall out; insert back into roast.)
- Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pot. Add onion, bell pepper, carrots, and remaining garlic; cook until onion becomes slightly translucent and browned, about 8 minutes. Remove carrots, and set aside. Add 1/2 cup water; cook, scraping browned bits from the bottom of Dutch oven with a wooden spoon. Add roast, carrots, potatoes, thyme, remaining 1 tablespoon Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning, and enough water to reach halfway up sides of roast. Bring to a boil; cover and place in oven.
- Reduce oven temperature to 325°. Bake for 2 hours for a 3- pound roast or 3 hours for a 4-pound roast. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
Serve over white rice and enjoy.

Has anyone tried this in a slow cooker? The recipe looks good!
Tried your receipe, amazing ! Thanks for sharing
I truly appreciate you sharing your recipes! I have no cooking skills and I’m trying to rectify this! My question to you is, can I use this if I’m cooking turkey legs, necks or wings?
Yes, you might just need to change up the cooking times but you should be able to substitute the beef with turkey.
