BBQ Chuck Roast

I've been in a meat kind of mood lately. I'm really making an effort to cut out all the sweets and extras we've been eating in our house and do some great, tasty meals.

This BBQ chuck roast is the perfect way to do that. It's fairly effortless and is just full of flavor. Choose a roast with some good marbling and you're set! Plus, it's an easy slow cooker recipe, so set it and go.

Ingredients:
4-5 pound boneless chuck roast
Montreal chicken seasoning
olive oil
1 can root beer
1 can red chile enchalada sauce
3 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
hot sauce to taste
Optional:
cornstarch
1/4 cup water or milk

1. Heat 2-3 Tbsp olive oil in a cast iron skillet. While it's heating, coat the roast with Montreal chicken seasoning. Sear the meat on all sides.
2. Place the meat in the bottom of the slow cooker and turn it to high.
3. Mix the root beer, enchalada sauce, Worchestershire sauce and hot sauce in a bowl. Pour mixture over the meat and cover.
4. Cook in slow cooker for 1 hour on high, then lower heat for 7-8 hours or just on low for 8-10 hours.

If you're interested in a gravy, remove roast and mix cornstarch into milk until it is slightly thickened, then pour into juices from the slow cooker.
Cook on high 15 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
