10 Days Crock Pot Meals: Cooking a Roast

Another great meat to cook in the crock pot is a roast. The best thing about the crock pot cooking method is that even a cheaper cut of beef will taste great after cooking all day.

When I find  roast on sale I usually stock up and then cook the meat all day using just a bullion cube, water, and a little garlic. Cooking it with “generic” flavors allows me to use the roast for many different recipes.

After the roast is finished cooking I shred it with a fork then freeze it in Ziploc bags to use for future meals. Here are some of my go-to roast dishes.

  • Shredded beef tacos
  • Enchiladas
  • Burritos
  • BBQ Beef Sandwiches
  • Use the shredded beef in soups (substitute for stew meat)
  • French Dip Sandwiches
  • Bee Rocks

You can also make a roast to serve with potatoes and carrots. This is such an easy meal and if you ned something simple for the holidays this is a great alternative to turkey.

If shopping for beef is confusing Mom’s Toolbox has a handy printable shopping guide for cuts of beef.
