Crock-Pot Turkey Roast with Rice
Crock-Pot Turkey Roast with Rice is one of my families favorite meals. I have made it with 2 different kinds of turkey roasts. I always use a boneless turkey roast because…well who wants to mess with bones!
The first time I made this recipe I used a Jennie-O Festive Turkey and Gravy in a roasting pan. I’ve done it both in a regular oven and a crock-pot, however when you do this recipe version you won’t be adding any onions or spices to the turkey. It will stay very moist in the roasting pan and the gravy adds enough spices that I only add salt and pepper to taste once we are eating.
You place the turkey in the bottom of the crock-pot and cook like it was in the oven but longer. This is nice when you are trying to avoid your oven…which I always try to do whenever possible! 🙂
The second time I made this recipe (and the one I Recommend) I used a regular boneless turkey breast roast, I can add onions, garlic and various spices with the turkey roast. My go to spice is Mrs. Dash seasoning blend, because it adds a ton of flavor.
My turkey came with a gravy packet which I used in the recipe. If your turkey does not come with a gravy packet just buy a packet of turkey gravy mix from your grocery store, or you can omit it and just use some of the cooking liquid from the turkey after it as roasted in the slow cooker.
You can loosen up the butchers string so that when you remove it after you cook it will be easier to pull off. I make 3 cups of rice. You can use a rice cooker or just use minute rice on the stove top. After that I add some steamed frozen veggies (I just buy the frozen vegetables that come in steam in the microwave bag). Add some salt, pepper and whatever your family enjoys for spices and voilà you are ready!
Easy, frugal and delicious!
