Pot Roast Slow Cooker Style


It’s getting chilly so I thought it time to break out my Ninja Slow Cooker.  I started with the Ninja recipe for Savory Pot Roast, and added a few of my own ideas to come up with an easy but great recipe for Pot Roast Slow Cooker Style. This is old school for sure, but the meat is affordable and so very tender on the plate.


recipe serves 4.


4 red potatoes – peeled and halved.

3 lb.  choice boneless beef chuck roast.

3 stocks celery – chopped.

3 cloves garlic – finely minced.

3 sprigs fresh rosemary.

2 carrots, peeled and chopped.

1 medium white onion – chopped.

1 cup red wine.

1 cup canned beef broth.

28 oz can of whole plum tomatoes – halve the tomatoes and use all juice.

1/4 cup flour.

1/4 cup olive oil.

1 tsp dried thyme.

1/8 tsp liquid smoke.


Coat boneless chuck roast with flour.

Heat heat Ninja Stove Top High (or a fry pan) add 1/2 of the olive oil and brown meat, on all sides , uncovered for approximately 10 minutes total.  Remove meat.


Add remaining olive all and all vegetables except the potatoes and saute until tender (about 10 minutes).


Add tomatoes (and juice), wine, beef broth, dried thyme, liquid smoke, and rosemary and stir.

Add meat and potatoes, cover, and set to Slow Cook Low for 6 to 8 hours or Slow Cook High for 4 hours. About mid way in the cooking process I turned the meat over.

That’s it, you just made a super easy wonderful meal in a cooker old school family meal.


I’m very proud to share this recent 5-Star review on my new novel VEYRON.




Reviewed By Eileen Johnson for Readers’ Favorite – 5 stars In Veyron by Roger Scouton, Jack Fields and Amber Reyes are a high powered team hired to oversee a security job at the Marine Corps Warrior’s Hospice Car Rally, a rally of classic cars in Arizona. The most classic and most expensive of the cars in the rally is a Bugatti Veyron owned by Prince Ahmed. Jack and Amber are ex-military and clandestine operatives hired by the insurance firm in London to work with Colonel Day, whose organization is providing security for the event. Of course, the event does not proceed as planned, as priceless cars are stolen, owners are killed, and the Prince is kidnapped during the rally. Now, Jack and Amber are required to use their considerable skills and connections to solve the mystery and bring the perpetrators to justice. Veyron is a sequel to Roger Scouton’s book Goldplay in which readers were first introduced to Jack and Amber, the team of protagonists in his new novel. Not having read the first novel, I am sure there is some back story that describes how Jack and Amber ended up being a couple and a team. However, Veyron definitely stands on its own and the reader should not feel compelled to read Goldplay first. Having said that, the energy, characters, and plot line in Veyron were so interesting that I intend to go back and read Goldplay, too! The best part about Veyron is that the reader essentially gets three stories in one book. The characters are the glue that holds the book together – and the primary and secondary characters are wonderful. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes action, adventure, and mystery.
