Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Onions
There are some days that you just need something EASY that you can throw in your slow cooker in the morning, leave for the better part of the day, and come back home to the main dish of your dinner ready to go.
This is a great recipe for working moms and dads because you can have this pot roast put in the slow cooker in just a few minutes in the morning (you can even slice your onions the night before when you are cleaning up the kitchen after dinner) and let this baby cook while you are at work.
Now, I am a WAHM (work at home mom) myself, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have busy days where I am not going to be home all day. So when I have a errand day, this easy 3-ingredient pot roast goes in the slow cooker and I can come home to a home that smells AMAZING and dinner is pretty close to done.
All I have to do is whip up some sort of side dish (a fresh salad or maybe some steamed veggies) and dinner is on the table.

Feel free to add some other vegetables to this easy recipe. Adding carrots, celery, potatoes, or even parsnips is fantastic. Just cut them into bite sized pieces and pop them into the slow cooker with the rest of the ingredients.
Making your own homemade onion soup mix is pretty easy. I like this recipe from Food.com because 1 recipe is the equivalent of one packet of store-bought onion soup mix.
