Slow Cooker Pot Roast
This Slow Cooker Pot Roast brings me back to my childhood! Since you need to cook the roast most of the day my mom would let it start cooking on low first thing in the morning on Sundays. We would come home from church and the entire house had an amazing smell! My mom made the best pot roast and I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.

Start by placing the roast in the slow cooker. Then place all your diced veggies around and on top of the roast. In a small mixing bowl add 1 cup water. Add in ranch seasoning, zesty Italian, and brown gravy. Whisk together then pour over ingredients in the slow cooker. Place slow cooker lid on. Time to cook! I prefer cooking my roast on low. If you cook it too high it can cook to fast and be too tough. I cooked it on low for 8 hours. Your roast should be able to fall about when touched my the fork.
The best cut for Slow Cooker Pot Roast:
I typically use a chuck roast for the recipe. You want to make sure it looks marbled with fat to make sure your roast is not to tough and also not too fatty. I also always buy bone out the roast. You could also use brisket or round roast. Just remember that low and slow is the best option. time can vary while cooking depending on the size, shape, and coloring of your roast but on average I find that 8 hours on low will do the trick.
