Slow cooker Monday


Pot Roast is a big favorite in my house.

I’ve made roasts in the oven and in my slow cooker, I much prefer the taste and texture of the roast when it is slow cooked.

I used my slow cooker to make a wonderful roast, then I took the roast to a




with a sour cream sauce and pasta.


The store bought additives

I bought some of the new Knorr homemade condensed stock. I really like it. I usually use homemade stock, but I rarely have homemade beef stock in the house. These condensed stock tubs melt quickly and each tub makes 3 1/2 cups of stock.


  • 1 roast
  • 1 Knorr stock tub
  • 2 cups of homemade cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 package of Beefy Onion Lipton recipe secrets
  • 2 TBSP of red wine (I used Cabernet Sauvignon)
  • 1 TBSP minced garlic
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of freshly cracked pepper

Layers, it's all about the layers

Cook the roast on high for 6-7 hours, until cooked and tender. Remove the meat from the slow cooker, allow it to rest for 20 min. Remove the fat and shred the meat.


Good enough to eat right now....

  • Add 1 cup of sour cream to the broth in the slow cooker. Wisk to combine it to the liquid.

Making sauce out of broth

  • Add 1 package of egg noodles to the slow cooker.
  • Add the meat back in to the slow cooker.

adding uncooked noodles and the meat back into the pot

  • Cook on high for about 30 minutes, checking once or twice to make sure that the noodles and meat are covered in sauce.

Ready to Nom

  • Enjoy with a salad and crusty bread.

Served with a tasty spinach, bacon and cranberry salad

  1. What a fantastic idea, the creamy sour cream sauce and thank you for pointing out the best beef broth. So many of them taste so fatty and salty! c

    Wow! Sounds awesome! I have a pot roast in the freezer right now-maybe I’ll try this soon!! 🙂

  3. I haven’t had a pot roast in ages. Although I might have a venison roast soon!

  4. Yummy. Sounds delicious!

  5. Great idea and good tip about the beef stock as I can´t make it here (no beef bones). Did you save me some?!

  6. Yum, slow cooked brings out the most amazing flavours – this looks great and warm and fulfilling.

  7. Looks delicious and so simple to make.

  8. Wow this looks SO good. I wonder if I could convince my husband to let go of “traditional” pot roast just once to try this.

    I never would’ve thought of a sour cream sauce! 🙂
