Easy Slow Cooker Recipe
I’m a busy mama of four and I cook three meals a day for my family. On Saturdays, I try and make sure that I utilize my slow-cooker for Saturday night dinners. Saturday is my day of rest, and that way I can enjoy my day and not have to worry about cooking dinner. One of my family’s favorite slow-cooker meals that I make is Savory Pot Roast with gravy.
Savory Pot Roast Tips
The key to a great and tender pot roast is not only the cut of meat you buy but the pot roast seasoning you add to the slow-cooker. The right amount of seasoning and liquid makes for a tender and savory roast and vegetables.
My savory pot roast seasoning blend along with gluten-free beef broth made cooked along with the roast and vegetables makes the perfect broth to make savory gravy.
Gluten-free gravy is not complicated to make, and the addition of gravy takes the pot roast to the next level.
It does not get any easier than my gluten-free slow-cooker savory pot roast with gravy. Make sure that you put your roast on at lunchtime so that it will be done by dinnertime.
Using a slow-cooker is an easy way to cook a hearty meal that everyone will love. I promise that you will love how tender and flavorful your roast will turn out.
