If you love pot roast, this is the easiest pot roast recipe you will ever make.
I am all about easy. This recipe is paleo, and I dedicate it to all of the meat lovers in your family.
This 5 ingredient pot roast recipe just doesn’t get any easier. It is truly fool proof!
Dump the ingredients into your slow cooker. DON’T brown the meat first. NEVER coat the meat in anything. DON’T do anything extra. This roast doesn’t need any special TLC to become great. These rules should help you make the best pot roast dinner :-).
We continue to get meat from our organic CSA Prather Ranch. (*please note this is an unsolicited plug. I was NOT compensated in anyway to mention them.) Each month is a mystery. We never know what we get until we open up the box. This month, there was a two pound roast included.
My growing son was so excited about this roast. At 13 and 5’8″ he is growing like a weed, and eating us out of house and home in the process.
Pot roast is typically braised and then slow cooked so it becomes tender, almost melting in your mouth. I am a bit lazy and so my roast recipe is not braised. As you can see below, I just dumped it all into my slow cooker. If you have a tough cut of meat, this is the best way to make it tender.
Even without the braising, my easy roast recipe made a delicious dinner our whole family devoured.
This roast lasted about 12 hours. That is it. My son really, really loved this and had several dinners within a few hours :-).
Do you have boys? Do yours eat constantly? I am still amazed at how much food they can put away.
