This crockpot pot roast and green beans recipe is a spin on my family’s favorite crockpot beef roast and carrots recipe. The meat cooks down in your crockpot to the point that it melts in your mouth and it makes your house smell amazing in the process. And, with only four ingredients, it couldn’t be easier to make!
I first made this crockpot pot roast and green beans recipe when boneless beef roasts were on sale at the grocery store and I froze six meals for my crockpot. Boneless beef chuck shoulder roasts are my absolute favorite meat to cook in my crockpot.
This is a very easy and delicious recipe that I think your whole family will love. Simply combine the ingredients in your crockpot and let it do all of the work for you. I’m also including instructions for how to freeze the ingredients raw in a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag. I love having homemade meals like this on-hand for busy weeknights.
Crockpot Pot Roast with Green Beans
Yields: 6 servings
- 2-pound boneless beef chuck shoulder roast, fat trimmed
- 1 pound fresh or frozen green beans
- 1 packet of onion soup mix (store-bought or homemade)
- 1 cup water
- Combine all ingredients in crockpot and cook on “low” setting for 8 hours or until beef shreds easily with a fork. Shred and serve.
- Add all ingredients (except water) to a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag. Remove as much air as possible, seal, and freeze flat in your freezer for up to three months. When ready to cook, thaw and add to crockpot with one cup of water. Cook for 8 hours on “low” setting until beef shreds easily with a fork. Shred and serve.
We normally eat meals like this with brown rice, but I’m sure potatoes would be great too.
Such an easy, delicious meal! Roasts were on sale over weekend so I put together this and your roast and carrots recipe as a freezer meal in no time! Made it today and my husband ate seconds and asked to have the leftovers for lunch. Have really been enjoying using a couple of your freezer meal recipes each week with whatever meats on sale. Such a time saver during busy days’
Yay! Thanks so much for letting me know. Sounds like a great way to save time and money!
Cooking beans that long? Slimy mush if you ask me.
Jeez, I never understand the need to make nasty comments on recipes. If I was making this, I’d most likely steam the green beans separately with a little water on the stovetop because I too prefer crisp veggies. BUT, there are also times when I throw everything in the slow cooker because I know I won’t have time to do that, or I know I have an extra busy day at work and won’t want the extra task, or pan to wash after getting home. My husband actually prefers well cooked veggies and loves that..different strokes for different folks. This… Read more »
you can add the green beans in the middle of the cooking time and they come out nice.
I cooked this in a 7qt crock pot for only seven hours and it was perfectly tender
Awesome. Thanks for sharing.
I’m new-ish to crockpot meals. I don’t intend to freeze this particular one, if that makes any difference, but would I need to make any adjustments to the seasoning or times if I wanted to throw in some carrots and potatoes in addition to the green beans? Thanks so much!
Nope. I think they would be delicious additions.
I pulled the bag out of the freezer and put it in the refrigerator last night, but this morning JT is nowhere near being completely thawed :/ any suggestions?
I would just add it to the crock as-is.
