Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 9 hours

Total Time: 9 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

This is a family favorite. I love it because it takes just a few minutes to prepare, making it great for a busy day. It's the perfect meal for a cold and rainy Fall day. I try to choose leaner cuts, but they can be a little tough if they aren't cooked quite long enough.


  • 1 2 ½ to 3 pound roast
  • 1 onion, cut into large pieces
  • 2 carrots, cut into large pieces
  • 2 stalks of celery, cut into large pieces
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1½ c. water
  • 3 cubes beef bullion


  1. In the bottom of a slow cooker, place onion, carrots, celery, water, and beef bullion. Rub roast with minced garlic, and add additional seasoning on top of the roast if you like (I add dried garlic, basil, and pepper). Cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 6-9 hours.
