Simple Slow-Cooker Pot Roast

I created my simple slow-cooker pot roast using Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauce as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #CampbellsSkilledSaucers

We all lead very busy lives and sometimes dinner is the last thing on our mind at the end of the day. I know after a day of classes I'd much rather order take-out than take the time to put together something that resembles a meal other than frozen pizza. It takes so much effort, you know? However, I think I've found the solution to all my last-minute dinner problems. It may take a little planning ahead, but with only 5 minutes of prep-time and Campbells Slow Cooker Sauces I can have a simply amazing weeknight dinner prepared in no time. And the best part? It's ready when I get home from school and I'm not left staring into the endless abyss that is our refrigerator.

Creating these simple and delicious Tavern Style Pot Roast was a cinch with the pre-made sauce. It was so easy that I decided to take a couple extra minutes to chop up an onion, dice some red potatoes, and add a handful of baby carrots. But that may have just been the over-aciever in me!


1. Campbell's Slow Cooker Tavern Style Pot Roast sauce
2. A dozen red potatoes
3. 1 yellow onion
4. Half a bag of baby carrots
5. 2lb beef roast
(There's no need to add any water or liquid. I know, I was surprised too!)


1. Make sure your beef roast is thawed and place in a 5qt crock-pot.
2. Chop up potatoes and onions and add to the crock-pot along with the carrots.
3. Pour your Campbell's Slow Cooker Tavern Style Pot Roast sauce over the beef roast and veggies.
4. Cook on high for 6 hours.

Now just think of all the things you can get done while your roast is cooking away. You could run some errands, do some cleaning, or even get some yard work done. I highly recommend having something to do to distract you while your roast is cooking or you'll probably just hover over your slow cooker all day drooling and waiting for it to be done. Not that I know that from experience, of course!

Intrigued? I'm sure you are! There's several varieties of Campbells Slow Cooker Sauces to keep meals interesting, too. You can choose from Tavern Style Pot Roast, Sweet Korean BBQ, Hawaiian Luau, Moroccan Spiced Stew and Mexican Red Chile Taco. Not only are they amazing the first time around, but you can also use your leftovers to create delicious sandwiches, tacos, or casseroles for another easy to prepare meal for the next day!


  1. Your post is making me hungry! I love crockpot cooking and pot roast is always a favorite at my house. I do a lot crockpot cooking on Mondays as it's so great to walk through the door at the end do the day and smell dinner already done. Great post!

  2. And just like that I am starving!

  3. Oh! I've seen these in the store, but hadn't picked one up yet. I've been eyeing the Korean BBQ flavor, but I have to convince my husband that sweet doesn't mean candy-flavored. He is weird about "sweet" meats.

  4. I haven't seen these yet, I'll have to look for them my next shopping trip. Oh and that Pot Roast looks amazing, it's one of my favorite things to make!

  5. Oh man how simple! I make pot roast the hard way and I don't even know why LOL I will def have to try this.

  6. I've been wanting to use those sauces for a while!! In fact, I have some sesame one in the cupboard. You just inspired me to make dinner and add this recipe to my list!

  7. I am drooling...And I am coming over for dinner!!!!

  8. One of my favorite dishes of all time... only easier! I can't wait to try this sauce!

  9. Mu husband said when I made this we will have to go to a tavern to have pot roast. It was excellent and made the house smell so good cooking ,


I adore hearing from you!
