Growing up, Sundays were the big meal days.  My Dad would cook a big meal on Sundays nearly every week. Pot Roast is a classic “Sunday” meal in many homes but I don’t limit it to just Sundays with the ease of the slow cooker!  Throw all the ingredients in and dinner is done in 6-8 hours! Love it!  This is my version of that big meal.

3-4 lb roast (I often use 2.5 lbs and the type of beef is entirely up to you. I use whatever cut was on sale that week)
1 pkg onion soup mix
1 pkg garlic and herb soup mix
2 cups of water
baby red potatoes (half the bigger ones)
baby carrots
1 medium onion roughly chopped or frozen baby pearl onions (I throw a good handful or two in)
1 cup sliced celery (if I have it and think about it)
Trim roast of fat and season with salt and pepper.
Place in slow cooker.
Prepare potatoes.
Place all vegetables in slow cooker around roast and on top.
Mix the soup mixes with the 2 cups of water(I find that warm water over cold water will mix the soup mixes better.)
Pour over roast and vegetables.
Cover and let cook 6-8 hours on low.
