Lately life has been so crazy-busy that we’ve been relying on our slow cooker more than ever. While we do try out a bunch of different recipes (thank you, Pinterest!), there’s one that we find ourself making over and over again.
What I love about this recipe—and most slow cooker recipes in general!—is how quick it is to toss together. You can use either sweet potatoes or regular potatoes. We usually opt for sweet potatoes that are peeled and sliced.
I then toss an onion into my food processor and chop it. You can do it with your knife if you are brave…but my eyes are super sensitive and can’t handle it!
Have you all heard of these slow cooker liners? I’m obsessed. When we didn’t have a kitchen the first 5 months in this house during our kitchen remodel, we LIVED off our crockpot and these bags so we could have as few dirty dishes as possible. You literally cook your meal in these, then throw it away! Tada!
I layer the bottom of the liner with onions and the sweet potatoes and top it with the pot roast. I always add a few more onions to the top for extra flavor as well as thyme, garlic, salt and paper. I usually also add some baby carrots in and cook it on low for 8 hours.
Add a glass of Cab Sauv and you’ve got yourself a fantastic dinner. 🙂
