Slow Cooker Tender Pot Roast Recipe

Let dinner be delicious and effortless. Combine potatoes, vegetables and a roast over flavorful spices and let them simmer together through the day. This flavorful Pot Roast made in a slow cooker makes dinner EASY!

Summer is on the horizon. The weather has been gorgeous and the boys and I have been spending as much time outside as possible. We are solidifying fun summer plans, which include another potential cross-country road trip, lots of swimming, time at the dropzone and other fun adventures. I love summer.

Despite summer practically being here, I am still using my crockpot like a champ. This pot roast was so delicious, you guys. It was tender, totally packed with flavor and just plain delicious.

Throw a 2-3-lb. roast into your slow cooker, along with an onion, carrots, potatoes, beef broth, worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and a packet of beef recipe soup & dip mix.

Stir it up a bit and throw on the lid. Cook on Low heat for 8-9 hours or High heat for 5-6 hours.

Thanks for reading. Enjoy the recipe!
