  • 2 pound pot roast
  • 1 can organic diced tomatoes
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • salt/pepper to taste


  • Put all of the ingredients into a crock pot.
  • Turn on high and cook for 4-5 hours. You can also cook on low for 6-7 hours
  • Reduce the heat to low and cook and additional 2 hours.
  • Remove and enjoy.
  • Feel free to add vegetables to the crock pot. My kids are not fond of vegetables cooked in the slow cooker, but most kids probably aren't as picky as mine :-).


  1. You can easily make this recipe in the oven. Place the meat and ingredients into a Dutch oven. Cover and cook on low 325 degrees for 2 hours. Check internal temperature and make sure the meat is 150-160 degrees F.
  2. Feel free to add vegetables like carrots and potatoes!
