Crock Pot Pot Roast

Sharing is caring!

When I was leafing through one of my favorite cookbooks recently, Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House Cookbook: A Celebration of Traditional Southern Dishes that Made Miss Mary Bobo’s an American Legend, a recipe for Pot Roast caught my eye. It had a can of cranberry sauce in it. I had never heard of using cranberry sauce for pot roast, but after researching pot roasts with cranberry sauce on the internet, I see it’s a fairly common thing.

And I do love Cranberry Meatballs, so I thought why not Cranberry Pot Roast?

Super easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast has tons of flavor from dry onion soup mix, tomato sauce, and a can of cranberry sauce.

 

Well, it turns out the pot roast doesn’t really taste like cranberries at all. But the sauce really develops a wonderful, almost indescribable flavor with just a slight sweetness and it has a fabulous deep reddish-brown color.

There’s really nothing like a pot roast cooked in the crock pot. A cheap piece of meat turns into the most succulent, tender, juicy, and flavorful meal. I like to serve this pot roast over either egg noodles or mashed potatoes with a side of peas. Actually, I like to mix the peas in with the pot roast, but my family objects to that. Pea haters. I don’t understand them.
