Slow Cooker (crockpot) Pot Roast Recipe

This dish is very simple and quick to prepare. It's my favourite Slow Cooker recipe.

(sometimes I add potatoes)

6-8 servings

4-5 lb top sirloin roast (or whatever you like)
1 teaspoon each garlic powder, paprika, dry oregano, salt & pepper
1 can of mushrooms
1 1/2 cups baby (or sliced) carrots
1 small onion sliced
1 packet of onion soup mix
1 cup water

Rub the roast with the spice mix then in a frying pan, brown your roast on all sides.
Place into the slow cooker. Top with everything else
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until it falls apart.
It will release plenty of juice to make your gravy out of.


Tip: I serve mine with the juices as they are, but if you want to make a gravy, transfer the juices to a pot and bring to a simmer on the stove. Add a tablespoon of flour to some cold water and stir it well to remove lumps, then add to the simmering pot and cook until it thickens. You may need more flour depending on the amount of juice you have in the pot.
