  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons parsley flakes
  • 2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste (I did 2 1/2 - 3 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (2 - 2.5 pounds) boneless chuck roast
  • 1/2 pound carrots sliced into 1-2 inch thick coins (about 3 large carrots)
  • 1 small onion chopped into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes peeled and cut into large chunks (about 5 large-ish potatoes)
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar + more to taste for serving
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  • Grease a 6 quart crockpot with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Whisk together spices in a small bowl: paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley flakes, salt, pepper, and celery seed. Set aside.
  • Place veggies into crockpot and sprinkle with half the spices. Set aside.
  • Rub the roast in the remaining spices.
  • Melt butter in a large non-stick pan over medium high heat.
  • Once melted, add in roast and brown for 4-5 minutes on both sides. The roast will not be cooked through, you’re just looking for a nice sear on both sides.
  • Place roast on top of veggies.
  • Pour over broth, red wine, and worcestershire.
  • Cover and cook on low for 10 hours or HIGH for 5 hours.
  • In the last hour of cooking, whisk together vinegar and cornstarch in a small bowl.
  • Stir into crockpot, re-cover, then cook for an additional hour.
  • Shred the meat directly in the crockpot and serve!
