Slow Cooker Pot Roast is a mouth-watering, healthy meal that will feed the entire family.
I gotta say, pot roast is one of my all-time favorite meals–for several reasons.
It takes me about 15 minutes to peel the potatoes, chop some onions and celery, and add everything to the Crock Pot. And after picking up kids from school, going to practices, and running errands, it’s nice to come home to a finished meal.
It tastes delicious.
I love the way the roast falls apart and the veggies are soft and piping hot. There’s a whole intermingling of flavors that is just amazing.
You can add just about any type of veggie, red wine vinegar, onion flavoring, or anything you’d like.
Recipe and printable instructions at the bottom of the post.
Peel and dice the potatoes and put them into the bottom of the Crock Pot.
Cut up the celery and the onion and add it in. I use baby carrots and just put those in whole. I also buy minced garlic in a small jar. It just makes life easier and I can spoon some out and put it in the slow cooker.
Add the chuck roast and sprinkle the packet of dried onion soup on top.
Add the chicken broth and water. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to give it some more seasoning. I didn’t add too much salt, because the onion soup can be a bit salty.
Cook on low for about eight hours. And when you take off the lid, you get this:
Mmm… supper in done!
