We continue to get meat from our organic CSA Prather Ranch. (*please note this is an unsolicited plug. I was NOT compensated in any way 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. He wanted me to mention he also love this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork (this is awesome for tacos!)
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.
- Pot roast
- Can diced tomatoes
- Beef broth
- Spices like thyme, salt, pepper, and basil
As I mentioned before, this is a simple dump, cover, and cook pot roast slow cooker recipe.
Cook on the low setting for 5 hours or high setting for 3-4 hours. If your slow cooker has a setting to cook on high then switch to low, you can use this as well.
You don't have to brown the meat before cooking, or the veggies for that matter. This recipe is the easiest!
