Pot Roast is a perfect comforting meal. Meat that has been slow cooked so it is incredibly tender, and simmered with delicious spices, cooked along with simple potatoes, carrots and onions. Every household needs a good pot roast recipe, and Slow Cooker Pot Roast is not only the best I have come across and made myself, but it is also the easiest.
Slow Cooker Pot Roast is a recipe that my mother makes. While waiting for our first baby to be born, my mom came down to help us out. Slow Cooker Pot Roast was a dinner she made one night, and we just fell in love with the awesome taste and simplicity of this recipe. I love making meals in a crock pot, everything turns out with tons of flavor and super tender. If you’re a big fan of crock pot cooking, or just looking for a super simple pot roast recipe, look no further.
With only four ingredients, you couldn’t ask for a more easy pot roast. When I first looked at the the seasonings used, I was a little skeptical about how it would turn out. Using the dry Italian and Ranch dressing packets, and a brown gravy packet makes for a winning combination.
