I have been wanting to make a slow cooker pot roast for a very long time. But I just hadn’t gotten around to it.  My main food motto is “No fuss, no muss” and I love things that are quick and simple, yet clean and healthy. When I saw some roast on sale I knew that this was the time to try it out! Nothing like a good sale on meat to give me just the excuse I needed.

This little pot roast recipe is straightforward and very easy. It only took me about 15 minutes of prep time and I let it cook all day. My house smelled divine! This recipe calls for homemade onion soup mix but you can use this recipe to keep it free from unwanted chemical additives.

I use a great 6-quart slow cooker for this recipe.  I have had it for more than 5 years and use it regularly and it’s worked fantastically for me.

This slow cooker pot roast recipe is naturally gluten-free and grain-free too! Because of the potatoes, it isn’t Paleo friendly, but you can substitute cauliflower or even radishes for the potatoes and it will be Paleo….and super yummy too!

      Sorry, I know that a lot of people like to have that information, but I don’t include that on my recipes. You can find the recipe on my Yummly account and they do have a little bit of a breakdown, although they don’t break down the micronutrients. You can find that here.
