Slow Cooker Roast with Potatoes and Carrots

 

I know this picture doesn’t make it look very appetizing, but it really turned out very good!  The roast was a chuck roast that I had purchased from Starbar Farm & Ranch.  When I used to make this, I would use a packet of onion soup, but since I didn’t have any on hand, I found a blend of spices online that was similar and without all the extra stuff too.  After the meat was cooked, I shredded it and mixed it in with the potatoes and carrots, making it like a beef stew.

 

Slow Cooker Roast with Potatoes and Carrots

What you need:

4-5 lb beef roast
2.5 lb potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces (I left the skins on)
8 oz peeled baby carrots
1 onion, cut into wedges
4 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
3 tablespoons dried minced onion
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups water

How to make it:

Place roast in slow cooker.  Place potatoes, carrots, and onions around the roast.

In a small bowl, combine beef bouillon, minced onion, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Sprinkle over roast and vegetables.

Pour the water over the vegetables that are around the roast.

Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or until meat can be pulled apart easily with a fork.
