What Vegetables Should I Use In A Pot Roast?
I want for carrots, potatoes and onions, a classic trifecta of veggies. But you can add in other herbs and vegetables as you would like. Play around with different root vegetables like turnips and parsnips, or sweet potatoes. In the fall squash would be awesome too. This dish can be adjusted to your favorite veggies with no problems!

Top Tips For This Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast
- Browning the beef in a pan before adding it to the slow cooker is a step I would not skip if even remotely possible. That crust is delicious and you don’t want to miss it.
- Don’t under season. It looks like a lot of salt, but you also have to remember you have 3 pounds of vegetables under the meat you are seasoning too.
- Yukon Potatoes – the buttery texture of a yukon gold are divine, you can alternately use russet potatoes here without any problems too.
- If you have fresh thyme by all means use it, I just like how easy this recipe is and pantry friendly so I normally use dried thyme unless I already have fresh on hand.
