Everyone deserves to feel like a queen once in a while. So, I'm going to share this easy roast recipe that will get supper on the table and allow time for pampering yourself.

This has got to be the easiest way to make roast beef. It is a complete meal, requires no thawing, and 5 ingredients (O.K. ... Six if you count water, but I don't because I always have that on hand!)


Here is our cast of characters:


A frozen beef roast. I'm using 100% grass-fed beef because that is what we raise and sell. This happens to be a chuck roast, but any cut will do.

Veggies ... I'm using potato, carrots, and onions. Use the quantity to fit your family.

Seasoning ... anything you like. This one is a blend of garlic, season salt and pepper.

 
This is going to be fast, so try to keep up!


Spray the crockpot with non-stick spray. Put the roast in the crockpot ... frozen. I started doing this when I decided that my crockpot was cooking things too fast. By the end of the cooking time with a thawed roast, it was overdone, leaving a ring in the crockpot, and stinking up the house.
Sprinkle on some seasoning. Don't be too heavy-handed, you can always add more salt and pepper later.





I just chop the veggies into chunks. The potatoes get cut into halves and then each half gets cut into thirds depending on the size of the potato. 


The onions get cut in half. Then placed on the fresh-cut side, they are cut in half the long way and then into chunks.










That's right, baby carrots. Already peeled and "chopped." They are perfect for the queen in all of us.


Put the veggies on top of the roast and season again.



Pour about 1 cup of water on top of it all and set your timer to cook all day (8-10 hours). edited to indicate that it should be 8-10 hours on LOW









You will come home to a wonderful dinner ready for your queenly appetite. The veggies will be fork tender and the meat will just fall apart.

I would have a better picture of all this yummy goodness, but the royal taste testers got to it before the camera could!

    Hey Cow Queen!
    I am dying to know (the words continued off the page), when you put the roast in frozen did you have to cook it on high all day or did it thaw and cook at the low setting for 8-10 hours?

    I love this dish but never tried putting frozen meat into my pot. But sounds like less planning which is the hard part for me when I am eating out of my freezer:)

    I have your burger in the crockpot right now! I fixed chili yesterday so I would not have to cook on my birthday;)

    I am having some technical difficulties with this blog. Rest assured that Queen Beverly is studying the issue and her royal advisors are trying to find the answers.

    The roast is put in frozen and cooked on low for 8-10 hours. The royal crockpot has settings for 4,6,8, and 10 hours. I usually use the 10 hour setting.

    Happy Birthday!
