In order to make this dinner, I prepped the beef chuck roast in my slow cooker the night before. After cooking for 7-8 hours the next day, I quickly threw in some arrowroot powder (to help thicken the sauce) and frozen broccoli. Lastly, I whipped up the carrot noodles. They only take a few minutes to prep and cook, so the broccoli was perfectly cooked by the time I finished!

Now, the jury is still out on who came up with the idea for these carrot noodles. My husband claims that they were his creation, but Iโ€™m pretty sure that I was the brains behind these beautiful ribbons… Regardless of whose idea it was, we both love them. Their flavor and texture was the perfect addition to this meal and I am sure that you will agree with both of us!
