3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Pot Roast – seriously, 3 ingredients and less than 2 minutes prep time and dinner will be slow-cooked for you. Bonus? You’ll more than likely have enough for dinner another night too!
3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Pot Roast is moist, flavorful and very tender. Weekday dinners don’t get any easier!
I use 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup always. With all the flavor cream of mushroom soup has, you’ll never miss the fat. I love saving calories without sacrificing flavor. This soup mixes with the onion soup mix to create a rich, flavorful gravy.
You can add potatoes, onions and/or carrots to the 3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Pot Roast,
but it won’t be 3 Ingredients anymore but I opted for just pot roast this time. I knew we’d eat leftovers of sandwiches the next night. Plus, I’m the only one that ends up eating the veggies when I put them in.
3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Pot Roast Tips
Roasts are typically made from tough cuts of meat. Don’t look at this as a negative, these cuts are usually inexpensive. Cooking them low and slow makes the meat more tender, not a positive if you don’t plan ahead. But, if you do plan ahead, plan to start a roast early in the day and forget it until dinner! The slow cooker or even your oven will do all the work for you! When choosing a roast I recommend getting a chuck roast , shoulder steak, rump roast or bottom round roast. Look for a cut that is well marbled with small pockets of fat not a large ribbon of fat running through the meat.
Plan for leftovers!
For sandwiches on the second night, I reheated the roast along with the gravy in a sauce pan. I toasted hamburger rolls with provolone cheese on them as the meat was reheating. I like my sandwich with just roast and cheese. Big Daddy likes to add banana peppers and roasted red peppers for a little zing to his.
