Personally, I love throwing a chuck roast into the slow cooker in the morning before work; by the time I’m done for the day, dinner is pretty much ready to go! Not to mention how tantalizingly delicious it makes the house smell.

But there are other ways you can prepare chuck roast recipes as well. This collection of recipes includes recipes to both grill a chuck roast and turn it into chili.

What to Serve with Chuck Roast Recipes

If you’re cooking a traditional pot roast recipe in the slow cooker, it’s nice to serve it with some sort of starch like mashed potatoes or egg noodles.

I always like to throw in a green veggie with my protein as well. A leafy green side salad, prepared broccoli, green beans or even carrots are all great options.

And we can’t forget about the sauce! Most chuck roast recipes will cook in a liquid, essentially making it’s own gravy to pour on top. However, you can make a homemade gravy or use something like a red wine mushroom sauce too.
