One-Pot Meal

This is an easy meal that is perfect for a family meal and just as well received if you have company over. They will thank you for the comfort food. If there are any roast pieces left, they are delicious in a sandwich. Even between two slices of bread with the delicious gravy poured over it. Yum!

This Slow Cooker Helps Soften the Meat and Keeps Things Moist too.

Use the drippings to make a savory gravy that just adds to the homemade flavor and goodness.

Using Frozen Roast

To be honest, I rarely plan ahead for meals. Therefore, when I made this last weekend, I dug in the freezer to see what what there. (I know, one would think that I was a planner!). There was a beautiful beef roast. It was a perfect day to take out the slow cooker and let the dinner cook the day away…little effort country goodness.

What’s not to LOVE about just 5 ingredients? I’m talking including the seasonings, meat, potatoes, carrots, and sauce as well. Excellent yumminess!

The seasoning mix that I used in this recipe is Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix. While I use it for my spinach dip, this is great as a seasoning in so many other recipes. Here is one that works well with the seasoning mix. If you are not able to find this locally, you can purchase it here.
