Super easy slow cooker recipe for a chuck roast. This comes out so tender that it falls apart! That's an A+ in my household.

Need an easy weeknight meal? This chuck roast is for you. The Crock Pot does all the work. Jazzing up a jar of beef gravy creates a wonderful gravy that the roast cooks in. The end result is a very tender chuck roast.
