Slow Cooker Italian Pot Roast

Updated on February 2, 2015

This is an easy slow cooker recipe that my mother shared with me years ago. It's delicious served over pasta, with some garlic bread to help sop up the sauce. Our family loves this!

2 1/2 lb beef roast, boneless

16 oz tomato sauce

1 medium onion, sliced

1 envelope Italian dressing mix

Salt and pepper

Cut roast in half for even cooking. Season roast all over with salt and pepper. Place in electric slow cooker (Note: be sure to plug in the slow cooker!). Add onion and remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on high setting 5 hours, or until roast is tender. Or, cover and cook on high setting 1 hour, then reduce to low setting and cook 7 hours.

That's it! So easy, and so good!

      I'll have to substitute garlic for the onion since my husband can't stomach them. But this does sound easy and good.

      I love finding new ways to use my crockpot. I'd not heard of adding tomato sauce - this sounds yummy! I'm thinking it would be good with chicken, too? Thanks for the great recipe!
