This low FODMAP Slow Cooker Pot Roast recipe is a classic comfort food made crockpot-friendly. Just 8 ingredients and 15 minutes of prep!



  • 2 ½ cups baby potatoes
  • 2 ½ cups sliced carrots (about 5 medium), cut into ¾-inch coins
  • 2 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil
  • 2 to 2 ½ pounds beef chuck roast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme


  1. Place potatoes and carrots in the bottom a slow cooker. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat the beef roast dry with paper towels. Season the beef roast with salt. Once the skillet is hot, sear the roast on all sides (about 2 minutes each) to help lock in moisture and flavor.
  3. Transfer beef roast and any remaining oil (for added flavor) to the slow cooker, placing the roast on top of the veggies.
  4. Add rosemary and thyme, sprinkling evenly onto the top of the roast.
  5. Cover and cook for 7-8 hours on low or until roast is fork tender. 
  6. Remove roast and shred or slice as desired. Using a slotted spoon, remove veggies. Either discard the remaining liquid or add shredded meat back in and stir to mix.
  7. Serve roast and veggies warm.
