Scrumptious Wednesday: Crockpot Roast

My mom's roast is one of my favorite Sunday dinners. 
Luckily, when my parents were in town, my mom taught me how to make one. 
I was completely fooled because I thought it would be really hard... it is so easy!
This is definitely going to turn into a regular at our place.

1 chuck roast (whatever size you'd like, just remember how big your crockpot is)
2-3 potatoes
1 cup carrots
salt and pepper

First you want to sear both sides of the roast in a frying pan for about 10 seconds.
Next, put the roast in the bottom of the crockpot. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top. 
Last, cut the potatoes and carrots to the size of your liking and put them on top of the roast. 
Maybe sprinkle a little more salt and pepper after too. 

Cook on low for about 10 hours or high for about 6 hours.
(depending on the size of your roast)

Be sure to check back next wednesday so I can tell you the best recipe for all the leftover roast. 


  1. I LOVE pot roast! Can't wait for your recipe for left overs :)

  2. I like to sprinkle mine with a packet of onion soup mix. Then I cook it in a can of beef broth. It makes some yummy gravy later. Now I'm hungry! ;)

  3. i always thought pot roasts were ridiculously hard too but then i couldn't believe how easy it actually is! LOVE pot roast after church!


I always love to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by :)
