Super Easy Sunday Slow Cooker Pot Roast And Veggies

This recipe is simple, easy and will make your home smell dreamy.  Remember going to your grandma’s house and how delicious it would smell when you walked in, every single time?  Well, you can have that too with minimal effort. Did you know that you cna make gravy in the slow cooker using the meat drippings from the roast? Yep! And guess what else, it tastes absolutely amazing. Give it a try sometime as you won’t regret it.

Check out what our friends over at 5 Dollar Dinners had to say about this recipe and making slow cooker gravy:

You can make a gravy directly in the slow cooker. Remove the meat and vegetables. Spoon 1/2 cup of the drippings into a small bowl. Add 1/4 cup of cornstarch to the drippings and stir to make a paste.  Add the paste back into the slow cooker. Use a whisk to thoroughly combine it with the rest of the drippings. Cook on high, stirring occasionally, until it reaches a boil. Place it in a gravy bowl and serve over your pot roast and vegetables.

I love eating this meal on a Sunday afternoon after the weekly church service.


2 lb. beef roast

2 cups beef broth

1 pound carrots, peeled and chopped

1 pound potatoes, washed and chopped

1 onion, coarsely chopped

4 -6 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon seasoned salt

coarse ground pepper



Place a little broth in the bottom of the slow cooker. then place the roast in the slow cooker.

Place the carrots, potatoes, and onions around the roast.

Pour the rest of the broth over the meat and veggies.

Sprinkle the garlic and spices over the roast and veggies.

Cook on low for 7 – 8 hours. Every couple hours, I rotate the vegetables so they cook more evenly.



Quick Tip: Chop up some potatoes in bite sized pieces and dump in the crock pot as well for another great veggie selection
