Slow Cooker Roast and Carrots


Simple Roast and Carrots in the Crockpot®, Low carb and weight loss surgery friendly!

Okay people, I am not kidding here. This is a seeeeriously good roast recipe. I saw someone pin something about it over the summer, but wasn’t in the mood when it was blazing hot outside. Alas, the season is changing and I went for it. I cannot tell you how flavorful this meal is! You gotta try it for yourself!! Too easy not too!

*Sidenote: I LOVE crockpots. If you’ve ever seen You’ve Got Mail then you’ll know what I mean when I say I love Crockpots like Frank loves typewriters. My personal favorite is the programmable Crockpot. If you need something to cook for 6 hours, but won’t be home for 10 hours….it will switch the setting to “warm” when the time is up. Here is the one I use! 

This recipe can be made in the Instant Pot. See recipe notes.
