Bust out the crock pot for this super easy slow cooker pot roast recipe made with spicy giardiniera and plenty of seasonings for a nice and spicy kick. The roast is so tender! Perfect for sandwiches or served over mashed potatoes.

Slow cookers (or crock pots, whichever you prefer) make amazing meals a snap. With a slow cooker, there is very little actual “cooking” going on for your part. It is the ultimate “set it and forget it” sort of kitchen tool, allowing you to toss everything into the pot and go about your day.

There IS a downside, however. You’ll be forced to smell those enticing aromas all day long as the food slowly simmers away in the kitchen, driving you absolutely MAD with hunger.

So hard to resist!

Feisty Italian Slow Cooker Beef Roast - Set it and forget it.

Since I work from home, I’m forced to endure the aromas wafting up from the kitchen into my office, testing my resolve and will power to resist breaking into the simmering pot for a sample.

OK, so I can’t always resist! It isn’t cheating, it’s quality control, right? I need to check on my recipe. Often. Often! Haha.

I make a lot of easy pot roast recipes – See my Spice Rubbed Pot Roast Recipe, this Famous Mississippi Pot Roast Recipe, Chili Rubbed Rump Roast with Chipotle Gravy, and even this Ultimate Leftover Pot Roast Sandwich Recipe – but this one is SUPER EASY, as we’re using very few ingredients to achieve flavor perfection.

Let’s talk about how to make it, shall we?

How to Make Feisty Italian Slow Cooker Pot Roast

First, you’ll need a good bottom round beef roast, a jar of hot giardiniera, a bottle of good pale ale beer, and a mixture of seasonings.

Next, here comes the hard part. Add it all to a slow cooker. Stir it up!

Finally, slow cook the entire pot for about 8-9 hours, until the beef is fork tender and can be shredded easily.

OK, wipe the sweat from your brow. So difficult, isn’t it?

The selection of Italian seasonings, coupled with the jar of hot giardiniara (try my Homemade Spicy Giardiniera Recipe), turns this cut of bottom round beef roast into a delectable experience that is both tender and spicy.

YES! I like to serve mine over mashed potatoes, but it’s also GREAT for sandwiches. Let me know how it turns out for you! — Mike H.
