Ingredients

  • 4-5 lbs chuck roast
  • 4 roasted peppers
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • salt
  • pepper
  • cajun seasoning
  • 1-2 Tbsp corn starch

Instructions

  1. Blend roasted peppers and broth in the blender until smooth.

  2. Add pot roast to slow-cooker, season generously with salt pepper and cajun seasoning.

  3. Pour roasted pepper broth over the roast, cover the slow-cooker and set to 8-10 hours on low.

  4. Remove the roast and place in a serving dish to pull apart with two forks and remove bits of fat if desired.

  5. Separate fat from sauce remaining in the slow cooker with a fat separator or mason jar method. Then pour over meat.

  6. OR make a gravy: Add fat-free sauce to a sauce pan and bring to a boil. In the meantime, add 1 Tbsp cornstarch and 1 Tbsp water to a small bowl and mix until corn starch is completely dissolved. Then add your cornstarch water (thickener) into your bubbling hot sauce, reduce heat to simmer and stir until gravy forms. Then serve.
