The Easiest Darn Slow Cooker Pot Roast Ever
Raise your hand if you're with me… an easy dinner ROCKS. This is the number one reason that I completely dig a pot roast recipe. It's like a party in a pan and my entire family loves how moist the meat is and how it just falls apart. Learning how to make a pot roast is the easiest thing ever and you'll look like Martha herself once you take the lid off your slow cooker. Go ahead, take this bull by the horns and be sure to come back and let me know what you thought.
For this recipe I used:
Slow Cooker Pot Roast
- 2-3 lb beef chuck roast
- 4-6 red potatoes peeled
- 4-5 large carrots peeled and cut into pieces
- 1 medium onion cut into slices
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 packages brown gravy mix
- 2 c. water
Spray your crock pot with cooking spray
Layer carrots first, roast next and finally on top potatoes and onions
Mix together one brown gravy mix with 1 cup of cold water and garlic powder
Pour the gravy mixture over your roast and veggies
After 7 hours of cooking on low, mix 1 cup of water and one gravy
Pour over roast
Cook one more hour with lid on

I am going to try this recipe, looks delicious. My crock pot season is in the summer when it is too hot to use the oven. In the cold season I find using the oven helps heat the house up and gives it a nice aroma of cooked food.

I totally agree, Jacqueline! Thanks for stopping by!
Could someone tell me what temp they set their crockpots on for this? Low? Medium? High?
Because of the cook time im gonna say its low.
Thank you so much !
Lisa I just noticed it says low in step 5. I totally missed it also.

It is better if you use 2 cups beef brother with the rest of ingredients.
