This pot roast recipe includes potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, and seasonings. With the included vegetables, it makes a fabulous one-dish meal, and it's so easy to prepare and cook in the slow cooker.

What You'll Need

  • 1 roast, 2 to 4 pounds - lean chuck, bottom round, rump, etc.
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet or other gravy browning/seasoning sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 medium onions, cut into wedges
  • 4 to 6 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 to 4 carrots, halved and quartered

How to Make It

  1. Place the beef roast in the slow cooker; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Make a paste of the flour and cold water; stir in Kitchen Bouquet and spread over the roast. Add garlic, onion, potatoes, and carrots (or use any other root vegetable such as parsnips or rutabaga).
  3. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.
  4. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed.
