Lazy Sunday Pot Roast {Slow Cooker}


Pot Roast //

When trying to stay on track with a Paleo lifestyle, those go-to, easy to make meals are a must! So, here is one of our favorites.

This has been my go-to dish on lazy Sundays for a few years now. I love that I could prep it in minutes, toss it in the slow cooker and have a healthy meal ready for dinner. Ironically, now that I am a mama, these are much less lazy Sundays, but much more of super busy ones that don’t leave me much time to spend in the kitchen!

I always brown my meats and saute my onions (and sometimes other vegetables) before placing them in the slow-cooker. This just adds some extra flavor. If you are in a hurry, you can always skip these steps and your roast will still be tender and juicy!
