Simply Delicious Slow-Cooker Pot Roast (Aldi-Friendly)

General Notes: Pot Roast is one of my favorite meals!  Low and slow is the way to go for a tender, moist roast. What better way to go low and slow than a slow-cooker? If you’ve got 10 hours, let it go that long, I promise it will be the most delicious roast you’ve ever had, I’m talking melt in your mouth!

My recipe calls for only 4 ingredients, making it super simple, but the flavor is out of this world!

And before you ask, did she forget water? . . . I don’t add any liquid to the pot. I find the meat and veggies produce more than enough liquid on their own!

Aldi-Friendly: All the ingredients listed can be found at Aldi! The Chef’s Cupboard Beefy Onion Soup Mix is a special buy. But no worries, if it’s not available at your store, just sub out with Chef’s Cupboard Onion Soup Mix and add a beef bullion cube!

Freezer Directions: This is a great freezer-dump meal. Put all the ingredients in a gallon zip-lock bag and freeze (Roast last, you want the roast to be first when you pour into the slow-cooker.) Defrost in the fridge 24-48 hours before serving day and dump into the slow-cooker. Some people prefer not to freeze their potatoes. If that’s you, just cut up your potatoes and add in when you’re ready to cook!

Kid Approval: Every member of the family from the biggest to the smallest scarfed this one down!
