Italian Pot Roast (Slow Cooker)

The slow cooker is a great way to cook pot roast, and this Italian pot roast recipe, which includes tomatoes and Italian seasoning, is a nice twist on the classic dish.

Since I use a 6 quart slow cooker, I purchase a large roast from BJs (close to 4 pounds) and get two meals out of this. The first night I serve the roast with the tomatoes and onions strained out and only a little liquid over the beef to help keep it moist.

When dinner is over, I trim the meat and cut it into smaller pieces and save it along with the remaining tomatoes and onions and all the liquid. Once the liquid has chilled, the fat can be removed and everything else goes into a pot of soup the next night.

I usually cook the soup in my pressure cooker which makes the meat super tender. You can add more water or broth if needed and any veggies you like. You can even add leftover rice if you make plenty the first night.

Blended Coffee


I grew up waking up to the smell of coffee and sound of the percolator (my parents still use a percolator). So it was no surprise that in college I began drinking coffee myself. My dad would spoil me and bring a cup of hot coffee to me in the morning, setting it on my […]
