Super Easy Pot Roast

Super Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast
This is a throw together, not exactly made from scratch recipe, but is it ever tasty.  Mouth watering tasty.
Served with cream cheese mashed potatoes and dilled carrots, it is comfort food at its best.  And is doesn’t heat up the house; especially if you put the crock pot on the porch!!

I suppose I should do a make your own Monday on how to make all of those mixes from scratch.  Oh the guilt I feel when I take the easy road.  Ugh.

    This is such an interesting combo of mixes, and set your guilt aside! Every once it just works to do it quick and easy. Saturday I used a cake mix and everybody loved the cake…look for it next week! I am going to put this outside on a hot day and my hubby will be so happy!

  4. >Brilliant idea! I will be putting our crock pot on the porch…can't believe I never thought of this. I love this recipe and my family loves the potato's. Thanks so much.

  5. >Guilt??? You'd better not feel any. You're saving electricity both from not using the stove and not heating up the house from using the stove! Slow cookers are an incredible way to cook meat like this. I have my mom's pot roast recipe that we all love too. This is awesome.

  11. >We having Blue Cotton Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes tonight! LOL – Now, I if you'd just come by with the pot roast – I'd have it made! However, we had my pork tenderloin last night, so it's all left overs. I'm trying your recipe during the first bout of school sports week!

  12. >Nothing like walking in the door and having a tasty pot roast dinner all ready for you in the crock pot! I'm going to try this!
