Using only 3 ingredients, this Slow Cooker Pot Roast is simple to prepare and packed with flavor! Comfort food at its finest!
One of my favorite meals my mom made growing up was this pot roast. The roast was tender, packed with flavor, and the gravy it made was great on the side dishes. Each and every birthday, I would request this for my dinner! One of the traditions we had in our family was each birthday, the birthday girl or boy got to choose ANY meal option. It could be homemade or a restaurant. I always chose this pot roast and then my mom would make mashed potatoes and a veggie to go with it.
When I got married and asked my mom for the recipe and was shocked at the fact there were only 3 ingredients involved! Not only is this incredibly flavorful, but it is also simple and quick to throw together! It is one of those meals that people will think you worked quite hard on, when in reality, it only took about 5 minutes to prepare!
If you love a good slow cooker recipe, you’ll love these family favorites:
One of my favorite places to buy roasts are Costco. I have found that their pricing is the best and each package typically has 2 roasts in it, meaning I have two meals! I separate the roasts into two packages once home from the store and when I am ready to make one, simply pull it out of the freezer, toss it into my slow cooker frozen, and dinner is prepared!
Over the years, this recipe has evolved, and we now add in some small potatoes and baby carrots halfway through the cook time to make this a complete meal! The carrots and potatoes end up perfectly tender and seasoned from the broth.
Best part is leftovers taste just as scrumptious as ever! Put some leftovers on your plate, stick the plate in the microwave, and a few minutes later, round two is a winner all over again!
This meal makes the entire house smell wonderful! It is one of those family favorites, comfort food meals that is perfect on a cold day, rainy evening, Fall/Winter season!
