Hints & Hacks: Grammy Diva’s Rockin’ Roast

Y’all, many of you who voted wanted some food in some way, shape, or form on the blog, and while I’m usually one to bake and share, my first venture into roast this past week seems like an excellent starting point.

For you working folks who don’t want to spend all day working hard only to get home and start things from scratch before you can eat dinner (which, if we’re being honest, is most of us most days), this CrockPot Roast is simple, inexpensive, and a quick way to serve many people or create multiple meals from a single dish. Take a look at the ingredients you’ll need below:

  • Chuck Tender Roast
  • 4 Russet Potatoes
  • 1 Package of Baby-Cut Carrots
  • 1 Package of Celery
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • Fresh-Cracked Black Pepper (to taste)
  • Kosher Salt (to taste)
  • 1 Package Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauces “Tavern Style Pot Roast”
  • Seasoning Mix of Your Choice (Pictured: Penzey Spices English Prime Rib Rub)
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 2 Cups Chicken or Beef Stock
  • 1 CrockPot


Putting together this roast is super simple! Nestle your roast in the center of your CrockPot. Clean, peel, and cut up your Russet potatoes, celery, and onion and add to CrockPot, then add your baby carrots. Add your Slow Cooker Sauce over your roast, then add a generous amount of fresh black pepper, kosher salt, and your seasoning of choice. Add water and beef or chicken stock until the CrockPot is completely filled and the meat is entirely covered. Put the lid on your CrockPot and turn it on low. Allow the CrockPot to cook overnight and about 9 hours the next day, stirring it in the morning before you go to work.


When you get home from work, you should be able to take a fork and pull off a portion of meat and scoop out some veggies and yummy sauce! Grammy Diva’s Rockin’ Roast is easy, quick, fresh, and inexpensive when you consider the fact that you’ll get at least five or six meals from your efforts!


Grammy Diva’s Rockin’ Roast Tips

  • Sprinkle your dry seasoning in the bottom of the empty CrockPot, then place your roast on top of it to make sure the meat is evenly seasoned.
  • Pick up barbecue sauce, onion buns, and a bag of chips when you buy your roast ingredients, and you can have awesome repurposed roast sandwiches for lunch or dinner following your original meal.

I hope you get a chance to try this recipe! Let me know how it turns out!
