"This is one of those roasts that will have you licking your plate clean! Yup, it's that delicious! I really like using the sodium free Herb Ox beef bouillon packets, but if you don't want to use them then just go ahead and use water. The 3-5 hour cooking time is approximate as there are so many kinds and sizes and makes of crock pots and some vary quite a bit in heat. Plan on at least 3 hours but it could take longer than times listed, so plan ahead. I serve my roast with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Glazed Carrots, Coleslaw and fresh rolls, but you can change it up how ever you like. Enjoy!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cover the entire roast with the onion powder, garlic powder and steak seasoning. Do not add any salt!

Step 2

Place roast in crock pot.

Step 3

Add the water to the crock pot, making sure it reaches all the way up the sides of the roast, but not covering the top.

Step 4

Sprinkle the bouillon packets over the water and mix in. Cover.

Step 5

Turn crock pot on low and cook for 3-5 hours, depending on size of roast and crock pot. Allow extra time just in case your crock pot is different than mine. It is done when the roast falls apart when you try to lift it with a fork.

Step 6

You can make gravy from the juices.


No special items needed.

Super tender and flavor packed roast that my family raved about with each bite! It was literally falling apart when I took the roast out of the crock pot. What flavor! I did make gravy using cornstarch slurry for my family, but I didn't indulge. It made great sandwiches the next day!

This pot roast in one that we have enjoyed several times and because it's made in the crockpot, I just brought it out on the porch to cook during the hot weather, so as to not heat up the kitchen. Now that fall is here I can have it inside, where the smell alone has you hooked! Simply put, it is scrumptious! I use a bottom round roast to make this.

Excellent pot roast! So tender and great tasting. The gravy was really delicious! Mashed potatoes, glazed carrots, coleslaw and rolls rounded out the meal.

This turned out so tender and so delicious. I used a blade roast for this, and lots of pepper but no salt, thank you!
