Adding Cajun seasonings to a pot roast is a fun idea to change a classic recipe. If you can't find Cajun Seasoning in your area, make Creole Meat Seasoning and keep on hand for this recipe and many more. This easy five ingredient recipe is perfect for any cold winter day.

For the best pot roast, a slow cooker really is best. The moist heat and long cooking time transform a tough cut of meat into a super tender, moist piece of beef that is packed with flavor.

Serve this recipe with a cool green salad that is tossed with mushrooms and grape tomatoes and drizzled with a creamy ranch dressing, or make Pears and Greens Salad, a sweet contrast to this spicy recipe. Offer a glass of red wine, add some toasted garlic bread, and you have a meal fit for a king.


  • 1 (2 to 3 pound) boneless beef chuck roast
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes with garlic, undrained
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Sprinkle Cajun seasoning over the roast and rub to coat well. Place the coated beef in a 4 to 6-quart slow cooker and top with the onion.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the tomatoes with their juice, hot pepper sauce, and pepper. Pour this mixture over the vegetables and the roast.

  3. Cover the crockpot and cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours or until the beef is very tender. Remove the beef from the slow cooker and place on a serving platter.

  4. Using a slotted spoon, remove the onions and tomatoes from the slow cooker and spoon over the beef. Serve with the liquid from the crockpot.
