Now that school has started and our schedule is filling up, it is important for me to keep a freezer full of  freezer friendly recipes ready to go for my family for busy weeknights.  I especially love any recipe that I can throw in the slow cooker in the morning and have an entire meal waiting at dinnertime.

This super easy slow cooker pot roast is big on delicious flavor but light on time and effort, and let me tell you that this one scored a perfect 10 with my family!  In fact, they rated this their favorite freezer meal thus far, which is really saying something!

Please note that the recipe makes two whole roasts that you can freeze ahead of time for busy weeknights, and it is a great addition to any freezer cooking day.  If you prefer to just make one roast, simply cut the recipe in half.  On cooking day, you can throw in some chopped carrots, potatoes, and onion to make a complete meal, or simply make it all on its own.


Freezer meals are fast, easy, and a great way to get a hot, delicious meal on the table on weeknights when cooking isn’t number one on your massive to-do list. Get started and see just how easy freezer cooking can be!

Here is what you need:

Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast ingredients.

2 (3-4 pound) chuck roasts
2 cans cream of celery soup
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup red wine
1 cup water
2 (1 ounce) packages of dry onion soup mix
Carrots, potatoes, & onion (optional–only needed when cooking)

Divide meat into two bags and add the soup mixture; freeze until ready to cook.

Step 2: Label bags, divide meat into 2 bags and pour marinade into each bag dividing evenly. Then freeze.

Thaw before cooking. Cook the pot roast on high for 3-4 hours, or low for 8-9 hours on cooking day.

Step 3: Thaw, cook in crock pot on low for 8-9 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours. *Optional- Add chopped carrots, onion and red potatoes to the crock pot after 2 hours.

This easy slow cooker pot roast is freezer friendly and so delicious, perfect for a weeknight dinner!

    This sounds so good! Did you use red wine or red wine vinegar? Neither of us like wine so I wouldn’t have that on hand and was wondering what I could substitute.

      You can add extra broth if you don’t want to add the wine. I hope this helps!

    How long does it takes to the? Can I take it or at night, move it to the fridge, and put in the slow cooker in the morning? Or does it need longer?
