Whether it’s a lazy Sunday or a busy weekday, pot roast is a welcome meal at the end of it. By cooking your roast in the slow cooker, along with potatoes and other vegetables, you can have a delicious, comforting evening meal when you return home. The best part is that you’ll barely have to lift a finger to make it.
Searing the meat before adding it to the slow cooker deepens the flavor and also seals in the juices so that the meat is nice and tender. This step is optional. You can skip it if you are pressed for time and the end result will still be delicious.
