Soy-Ginger Pot Roast
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 7 hours
- 1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 to 4 pounds)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1-1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1 large onion, halved and sliced
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch

- Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown roast on all sides. Transfer meat to a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix water, soy sauce, honey, vinegar, garlic, ginger and mustard; pour over meat. Top with onion. Cook, covered, on low until meat is tender, 7-9 hours.
- Remove roast and onion to a serving platter; keep warm. Transfer cooking juices to a large saucepan; skim fat. Bring cooking juices to a boil.

This was very good. I browned it first but I'm not sure it added anything to it. The gravy was tasty!

This turned out excellent, I had a larger roast so I had to cook longer.

I'm not a huge fan of pot roast but my husband is so when I came across this i really wanted to try it. So glad I did! We both loved it and the flavors blended together great. I didn't Brown it on all sides because i was in a hurry. Still was great!

My family loves pot roast, this recipe gave me yet another good recipe to add for pot roast. Next time I think I will add a few greek peppers in it.

I would give this 6 stars if I could!!! I loved the flavors of the spices coupled with the tangy cider vinegar and mustard. A keeper for sure!

Very good, and very easy. I also skipped the browning step, and it didn't seem to change the results. I'll be making this tender roast again!

Made this last night for friends. Skipped the browning step because I was short on time in the morning. Shredded it and served over brown rice. Everyone loved it!
