Pot roast is hands down my favorite meal to eat. There is just something about a slow cooked hunk of meat with veggies that can make almost any day awesome.
Over the last few months I have learned how to make an amazing roast, with veggies, in my slow cooker. There are other really amazing ways out there too, this happens to be my current favorite!
Step 1: You will need:
This is a fairly simple recipe. Other than buying the roast when you are ready, you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already.
1 roast - I prefer chuck since I cook it all day while I am at work, but really whatever you like should be fine; do try to find a flat one rather than a rounded one if you can
hard vegetables (carrot, onion, potato, sweet potato, squashes, turnips, parsnips - if you could roast it in the oven for longer than a tomato it is probably fine, whatever your family likes)
salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried oregano
slow cooker (you will adjust your ingredient amounts to fine you slow cooker size & shape - mine is a 6 quart oval)
cutting surface and knive
small bowl for salt and pepper
