One of our favorite slow cooker recipes is this Slow Cooker Pot Roast! It’s made up of just a few simple ingredients and we love to serve it over cheesy mashed potatoes!
Now let me tell you something, as a food blogger I don’t normally make the same recipes over and over again. I’m constantly trying out new recipes and testing ideas, which normally end up being our lunch or dinner.
So when I make a recipe more than once a month, you KNOW it’s a winner at our house! The winner that I’m talking about today is this Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast!
Now look, I’ve been making pot roasts in the slow cooker for years and to be honest I normally just grabbed those pre=made packs of beef, carrots and potatoes when I wanted to cook one. It came with an onion that I’d have to toss since Thomas can’t eat onions, a tiny cut of beef and it always had a random seasoning packet in it.
Over the past few months thought, Thomas had taken over the pot roast making and the result of his first take over was this Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast! He decided to just add mushrooms and carrots with a nice sized roast.
He didn’t add any onion and instead of a regular pot roast seasoning, he used a packet of beef stew seasoning for his pot roast.
He also ditched the potatoes in the roast and decided to make mashed potatoes as a base for the roast!
Mmmmmmmm, let me tell you, this Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast is just fantastic! I love the mashed potatoes with it so much better than potatoes cooked with the roast in the slow cooker.
PS. the trick to getting this nice and juicy? After it’s done cooking, turn the slow cooker off and just let it sit in the juice for about 20 minutes or so!
Then just spoon the beef, mushrooms and carrots over a hot plate of mashed potatoes for the perfect comfort food meal!
You can use store bought mashed potatoes or homemade!
