Recipe.com Dilled Pot Roast

I have a slight obsession with my slow-cooker. I love everything about it, the fact that it saves me time, that it can transform bad cuts of meat into a delicious meal and most importantly that it is very easy! Growing up my mom never really used her slow-cooker except for the once or twice a year she would cook a meal using it and then put it away until the following year. When I got married I quickly learned from my mother-in-law that the slow-cooker was awesome. It took a little trail and error of adding to much or not enough liquid to perfect my slow-cooker technique, but after a couple of years I started branching out and trying any recipe I could find using the crockpot. One of my favorite slow-cooker dishes is pot roast and I was excited when I ran across a recipe for Dilled Pot Roast on Recipe.com using fresh dill.

This recipe has 9 ingredients. It takes 20 minutes of prep and 6 hours of cooking time on high, and makes 6-8 servings. All the ingredients are basic and I had no problems finding any of them at my local grocery store. I cooked my roast on high due to the fact that I started it too late to cook on low. Normally I like to cook on low in my slow-cooker, I think the flavor is more favorable. I chose to Greek yogurt instead of plain yogurt, I prefer the flavor and thickness. Finally, I used kosher salt instead of regular salt, I find the flavor preferable in cooking and baking. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.

I love the amount of time and effort that cooking in my slow-cooker provides. This recipe was no exception, the meat turned out moist and delicious. I chose to serve the roast over noodles as suggested, but honestly the taste of the roast was good enough to be served alone. The fresh dill really made this dish and created a great flavor for the roast. Overall, an easy and delicious slow-cooker recipe.

For the recipe go to Dilled Pot Roast.

  1. I love dill but I've never used it with beef in this manner. I'm going to try it soon. I love my crock pot but I don't use it enough.

    1. Having pot roast after a long day is the best, especially when the slow-cooker does all the work :)
