Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

We have a pretty busy life.  Our kids are getting older and wanting to do more activities.  Dinner time is our chance to sit down and connect with each other.  That does not happen as much I would hope during the week so our weekend meals are pretty golden.

I’m trying to go a bit old school and have a bigger sit down Sunday dinner (with dessert).  I remembering do that growing up and I always loved going over to my friend’s homes where their families did the same.  There is something about a comforting meal that brings people together, right?

How To Cook A Roast In A Crock Pot

If you want something to be super tender, you cook it low and slow.  It is the whole purpose of a crock pot or slow cooker.  Cooking meat in the crock pot is one of my favorite ways to prepare it because it does a beautiful job of tenderizing the meat without over cooking it.

You typically do not need to add liquid when using a crock pot, but you can.  It cooks slow enough where the natural juices come out and keep it moist.

I make a super easy and delicious beef roast dinner in the crock pot that I absolutely LOVE!  I throw everything in, set it on low for about 8-10 hours and dinner is ready for us!

Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast With Gravy

You can even throw a few potatoes in there and have them cook at the same time.  Just wash and slice them in half lengthwise.   My family really likes mashed potatoes so I keep them out most of the time.
The seasonings in this recipe not only flavor the roast, but makes the BEST gravy!  And in my opinion, gravy makes EVERYTHING better!
