Pot Roast & Veggies

IMG_3753

We call this the perfect Sunday meal – meat, potatoes and veggies simmering all day in a crockpot. It’s easy, delicious and brings all the kids home. Unless you have littles like me, mine are always home, and can always find me – no matter what!

But really, it’s the best. Adjust the ingredients for what your family likes or has on hand. Make a simple gravy to add on your potatoes or your meat at the end. Or if you have little kids like mine – just add ketchup, ha!

What’s the best type of roast to use? I prefer chuck roast, as it is the most tender and will easily fall apart once it’s done cooking.

What vegetables do you add? We usually chop up potatoes, carrots and onions. But you could always use whatever your family prefers – broccoli, peppers, etc.

Looking for another easy crockpot recipe? Here are a few.
