Simply Delish Beef Pot Roast

There’s just something about a slow-cooked meal on a cold, fall day. I love my slow-cooker. So far, almost everything I’ve used it for has turned out delicious…except for that one time (we’ll save that story for another day!). The Simply Delish Beef Pot Roast is no exception. I started the pot roast at 9am before we went out for breakfast, and by 630pm, a rich, meat and potatoes meal was waiting for us. Have I mentioned that a meal is perfect in my husband’s eyes as long as it contains meat and potatoes? Another reason we love this dish!

Small to medium size rump roast
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 envelope brown gravy mix
2 individual size serving apple sauce
2 cups water
4 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 medium to large size potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
1 small onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, sliced

Sear all sides of the roast in the frying pan in a little bit of oil.
Put roast in the crock pot, top with vegetables.
Mix envelope mixes with water and applesauce, then pour over roast and vegetables.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours (I cooked for 9.5 hours).
Best served with warm rolls.
Makes about six servings.
