Pot Roast

I made this pot roast in my slow cooker (of course), and it was delicious.  I made a lot so it lasted Bryan and I a few meals, but it would serve 4-6 people I think.  A lot of people brown the meat before putting it in, and that adds nice color, but it was delicious even skipping this step.  Also, I have a large Crock Pot (9 quarts, I believe) that I used; you can halve the recipe for the smaller, standard-sized ones.


  • 2 lbs pot roast (Mine was actually two 1-lb portions)
  • 4 large or 8 small potatoes
  • 1 large bag baby carrots
  • beef broth (I had one box)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, minced
  • 2 tbsp dry rosemary
  • 1 tbsp dry basil
  • seasoned salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • water
  • Put meat in bottom of Crock Pot
  • Top with garlic, onion, potatoes, carrots,and spices
  • Pour beef broth over top, and add water until everything is submerged
  • Cook on high 6-7 hours, or on low all day
You can really add whatever you want or have on hand to this recipe.  Celery, turnips, etc. would work, but we like potatoes and carrots best.

  1. Good luck with your baby's food sensitivities. We are BFing and dairy free - so I feel your pain. I feel very lucky that we don't have to be soy free, b/c everything has soy in it. I love finding blogs about the trials of being dairy free. One of the first blogs I read was MSPI mama This was the start of my dairy free recipe journey. I will keep your blog as another source of recipes to follow.

    I am a fellow bumpie and clicked on your blog link (lesalia217). Best of luck in your mama/BFing/food sensitivity journey!
    is my blog. I haven't posted recipe in awhile, but I do try.


Thank you for reading!! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
