Slow Cooker Roast With Vegetables

Spring is here and so is the yard work! We have 2-1/2 acres and when I work outside for hours, like today, I usually can’t move afterwards. I prepared for the down time by making dinner early in the morning in the slow cooker. That way all I had to do is cut the meat and put everything on the plates.

I love to make a roast in the slow cooker, the meat just falls apart and it makes the best gravy! I didn’t make gravy with it today but I will be saving the juice! I cooked the carrots, potatoes and onion at the same time as the roast so my entire meal was ready to serve with no added work.

We usually have leftover beef so I save the juice, shred the leftovers and make shredded beef sandwiches for another day. Two meals in one!

  1. I love my slow cooker. Some are better than others though. My previous slow cooker didn’t seal properly and really boiled everything quite violently. The best thing about Slow cookers – they’re easier to clean than the oven. (Spring is long over here – autumn well underway.)
