Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Betty Crocker Ultimate Mashed Potatoes

Like many of you, the holiday season is the busiest time of the year for me. It even seems like the busy season started unseasonably early this year, as I’ve been running in circles since early October. I wouldn’t trade this time of the year for anything tough. Even with all the hustle and bustle it’s still magical. One of my biggest challenges during the holiday season, is getting a delicious and healthy meal onto the table for my family – especially on week nights. My best go-to meal is a slow cooker pot roast served up with a side of creamy mashed potatoes.

Side Dishes Make the Meal

Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Betty Crocker Ultimate Mashed Potatoes

I always get excited when a meal takes no time to prepare, yet looks like I have been slaving in the kitchen for hours. This meal couldn’t be any easier to prepare thanks to the slow cooker and the Betty Crocker Ultimate potatoes which taste like homemade. Just after the roast finishes up in the slow cooker, I add some water, butter and milk into a pot for the mashed potatoes. They are ready in minutes. Easy peasy! These aren’t your typical instant potatoes either – they’re made with real potatoes and real cheese. Can you see that cheesy potato goodness?

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

ingredients:

3 – 4 pound beef roast, of choice (I usually go with whatever is on sale.)

1 envelope brown gravy
1 envelope onion soup mix
salt and pepper
1 bag pre-washed baby carrots

directions:

1. Place carrots into the bottom of the slow cooker. Generously salt and pepper roast, and place on top of the carrots.

2. In a bowl, combine the cola, beef broth, gravy mix, and onion soup mix. Whisk until well combined and pour over roast.

3. Cover and cook on low for 8 – 10 hours, depending on your slow cooker. Mine takes closer to 10 hours. When done, the roast should easily pull apart with a fork.

Some things are just perfectly paired together, and that’s how I feel about this roast and a side of the Betty Crocker Ultimate Loaded Mashed Potatoes. My family goes nuts for anything cheesy and anything with gravy, so this meal certainly fits the bill. The combo of beef broth, cola, onion soup and gravy mixes gives the pot roast such a yummy rich flavor. This is by far my favorite pot roast recipe.

What’s your favorite go-to week night meal?

  • Never made pot roast in the crock pot before – strange, how I never thought of it. Those Ultimate potatoes look great! I love cheesy, loaded potatoes – sour cream. butter, chives…yummy!

  • This looks really good. A couple of weeks ago, my fiance made pot roast in the crockpot and it was excellent. I have heard of using cola in cooking roasts, but haven;t tried it yet. Gonna have to I think.

  • I’ve never made Pot Roast using anything other than a slow cooker. I love the way it makes the house smell; plus, using a slow cooker makes it so much easier to sample the stock – which I do often b/c it’s just sooo good.

  • Oh wow, I want some! I always forget how easy it is to just toss something in the crock pot. Not sure why we don’t use it more often.

  • Cola? I do this recipe, but have never heard of nor thought of adding the cola. I love the new and different idea. Making a mental not, and craving a roast and potatoes right now 🙂

  • This roast looks delicious! Definitely one I’m going to try. My fave go-to weekday meal is pretty easy, but nutritious (in a sense) – I chop smoked sausage into 1/2 inch pieces, brown in a bit of butter w/salt and pepper, then put a little bit of water into the skillet and add frozen broccoli to the mix. Lower heat, cover and stir every now and then, and 10 minutes later, you have a one-pot dinner! Sometimes I get real fancy and put some cheese on top! 🙂
