Live From the Request Line: Slow Cooker Pot Roast (One of my Favorite Food Storage Recipes!)

This is the pot roast my mom made growing up. To me there is NOTHING BETTER than walking into my house and smelling the smells of my childhood, not to mention this food storage recipe is EASY and has LITTLE mess! It didn’t always include as much food storage but you know me…I think almost any recipe can become a food storage recipe! Try it for yourself…

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

1 Pot Roast, thawed (remember you can’t put frozen meat in a slow cooker)
1 Potato for EACH person, cut into quarters
1-2 Onions, cut into eighths
1/4 C. Carrots for EACH person, cut into chunks (or use baby carrots)
1 packet Dry Onion Soup Mix
1-2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup (which I of course made with my magic mix…so delicious! Click HERE for the recipe)
1 bag frozen peas

Place meat in bottom center of slow cooker. Place cut potatoes, onions, and carrots around meat and along edges. Combine soup and dry onion soup mix and pour over meat and vegetables. (Make sure that your potatoes are covered or they’ll be purple!) Cook on low heat 6-8 hours. During last hour of cooking pour frozen peas on top (if you do it before the last hour they tend to get mushy). After it is finished cooking and depending on how thick you like your gravy you can empty the meat and vegetables and thicken the gravy with more magic mix (pretty great, huh?), corn starch, or flour in a pan/pot over the stove.

  1. This looks like a DELICIOUS recipe. But I'm not confident that frozen foods should be considered "food storage". If/when the SHTF, electricity may not be available, and all our frozen foods will have to be eaten--or given away--at once.

    Canned foods might be a better option.....
