This easy slow cooker pot roast recipe is sure to make it on your Sunday supper rotation. Do you have a small family? Then bust out that slow cooker and make this pot roast!
We are slow cooker people. We have two of the big ones (good for soups, pot roasts, meals in general), and one of the smaller ones (good for dips and fondue). I am a bad slow cooker person because I don’t know the exact number size of said slow cookers… but I’m okay with that.
We pull these guys out in the fall and winter when we are too busy to cook – the holiday season can get crazy hectic. And we use them often in the spring and summer. You can make a big meal without having to turn the oven on – it helps me keep the kitchen a little cooler during the hot months.
This slow cooker pot roast recipe is great for a few reasons. One, it cooks quicker because its smaller. Two, its smaller so its great for our 2-person family. Usually I cook a pot roast in the slow cooker and it weighs 5 pounds and takes 6-8 hours to cook. Not this baby. Put it in the slow cooker before you do some chores or go grocery shopping.
You could even watch a movie and take a late afternoon siesta if so inclined.
Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe
I had a lot of fun photographing this recipe – I used our porch as my “table” and made Nero stay in the kitchen while I took my photos. The scent of the cooked pot roast wafted into the kitchen and I thought he was going to jump through the screen door to get to it. Thankfully I had that glass of red wine to drink to help soothe my nerves. 🙂
