Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

I normally don’t use a lot of pre-packaged foods, but this combo worked great and reduced the prep time to under 5 minutes. You can throw this together in the morning, and have a delicious meal waiting when you get home hours later.


3-4 lbs piece of cheap beef
1 carrot
1 onion
4 cloves garlic
1 bay leaf
1 packet Lipton onion soup mix
1 packet chili seasoning (or mild chili powder)
1 qt jar borscht


1. Peel and slice vegetables, add to bottom of crock pot
2. Coat meat on all sides with chili seasoning
3. Add borscht and soup powder, mix to dissolve soup powder into borscht
4. Add meat and then put a clove of garlic on each side, throw in the bay leaf
5. If you will be around, cook with temperature probe until 160F on High, then turn meat and cook on low until 180F, then test for doneness and continue to cook until tender. Also can cook on low for as many hours as you’ll be out

Serve sliced over with egg noodles with the gravy
