Slow Cooker Pot Roast is my recipe of the day with Multicooker  Monday. My little blogging group  has been getting together  once  per month. We like to  share recipes used on small kitchen devices,  such as the  Instant Pot, Slow Cooker and more.

It helps expand our repertoire  and get more recipes of each type  onto our  blogs since these machines are  among our favorites to  use.  Which kitchen appliance do you like to use  most often? I just can’t decide.  But I  do want to  use them all  more, because the  more  I use them, the more  I  love them!

This  month I am  sharing another crockpot pot roast. Pot roast is a family favorite  here, so I like  to  make all kinds. This recipe adds a few brown  gravy packets to punch  up the pan sauce. It will  still need  a  little  cornstarch, as slow  cookers  notoriously produce extra moisture.

But  it’s a nice  one  pot  meal. What do you like serving  with your pot roast? I  could get  by with a  big bowl  full and a couple of biscuits or soft  rolls.

And the leftovers always make fabulous  beef sandwiches, which I  love schmearing  horseradish on.

  1. Crock Pot is definitely my favorite way to make pot roast – I could eat onions that have been cooked in the crock pot alongside a roast by themselves – it turns them into something magic! We usually just eat pot roast with all the yummy traditional veggies that get cooked alongside it (potatoes, carrots, and onion).

  2. Wow, this recipe looks incredible! I’ve been looking for new ways to use a slow cooker. I can’t wait to try this out. Thank you for sharing!
