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!
