Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tip: For a quicker start, trim the meat, assemble ingredients, and cut up the vegetables the night before. (Cover the potatoes with water to prevent browning.) Then refrigerate until you're ready to start the slow cooker the next day. Prepare as directed, draining potatoes before adding to slow cooker.

Slow Cooker Tip: For best results, do not remove cover during cooking.

    I don't cook but following this recipe was so easy. The pot roast was so good ( and I am not bragging) that even my sister was pleased which is saying a lot.

    This is the only seasoning and recipe that I will use when making a pot roast. The pot roast comes out perfect every time. The only thing that I do differently is to brown the roast before adding to the slow cooker. Adds a little extra flavor and texture.

    Can I use the bag that comes with the oven version of pot roast in a slow cooker? I've got McCormicks Pot Roast Bag 'N Season package and want to use it in a slow cooker.

    A wonderful, delicious, fall-apart dish that I found amazing. Just like grandmas ... only better. You don't even need teeth to eat this! :) My house smelled awesome all day.

    I do not like any recipe with liquor in it. Many of your recipes do.
