Chrissy's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast



So simple and easy you just basically add everything turn on your slow cooker and walk away, it doesn't even matter if the meat is still frozen! 

I basically feel like I am taking advantage of something since it is so amazing yet I did not work very hard in the kitchen to achieve such an amazing meal! 

It for those nights you want to have a healthy savory meal with out all the fuss. 

This recipe is for a 7 quart slow cooker. 

Oven Directions** If you want to make this in the oven just follow the recipe but place it in a roasting pan or baking dish. Bake at 300 degrees F for 3-4 hours, until meat is cooked all the way and fall apart. 


Ingredients:

3 Lbs of meat (Beef, Pork, Venison, Bison, Elk, or Boneless Chicken) 
(Omit meat for Vegan, and Vegetarians) 
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
7 Chopped red potatoes
3 Chopped celery stalks 
3 cups of chopped baby carrots
1 yellow or red onion chopped
1 Can of green beans
3 Cups of sliced mushrooms (optional) 
2 tablespoons of parsley
1 Tablespoon chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 Dry Packet of Ranch Dressing
2 Cups of Vegetable, Beef, Chicken broth or water
3 Tablespoons All purpose flour


Directions:

This step is optional ** Place your meat in a large skillet with a drizzle of olive oil. on Medium - High heat sear your meat until it is slightly browned on both sides of the outside. 

Next put all of your vegetable ingredients in your slow cooker. 

Now in a measuring cup whisk together all of your spices, broth, water and ranch dressing, and flour until there are no lumps.

Rub the outside of your meat with your olive oil then place your choice of meat on top of your vegetables. (This way as your meat cooks the juices drip down over your vegetables and flavors them.)

Next slowly pour your measuring cup of seasonings over top of your meat.  

Put the lid on your slow cooker and turn it on 

Cooking times; (choose one) 

Low -10 Hours
Medium 6-8 Hours
High 4-6 Hours

Remember if you take the lid off of your slow cooker to peek or stir you are letting the heat out... so a good rule of thumb is, " If your look'n your not cook'n" keep this down to a minimum. Honestly your slow cooker works best if you leave it alone.

***Note*** Feel free to add other ingredients too like, corn, peas, kidney beans, broccoli, or okra! Just to name a few! 

Also you can use completely frozen meat it does not have to be thawed for the slow cooker.
