  • When you do a roast in the crockpot, when do you put in the potatoes and carrots?
    I often do roasts in the slow cooker, but I don't think I have ever done one with potatoes and carrots (I usually do it that way in the oven).
    Do you just put them all in at the same time, or do you add the vegis later?
    Thanks,

    HI, I put in the potatoes & carottes tunips at the same time. Lighter veg. such as green beas, pepper goes on aprox 1hr. before end of cooking time.

    Kathy, I put them all in at the beginning. Make sure to poke your potatoes with a fork. You can add them later ~~ they'll be done but crunchy, but won't have that great cooked in a roast flavor.

    I like to put the carrots & onion under the roast & potatoes around the side & on top. Just seems to even out the cooking.

    I put it all in together, with the to die for seasonings. I use pork gravy instead of brown, though. Yummy.
    Um, Christine, what happens that I didn't poke my tatoes? I did cut them kind of smallish. They aren't going to explode all over my kitchen are they?
    Thanks for all the help, everybody.
    Too bad I have to work tonight and won't even get to taste the fruits of my labor. Booooo-Hooooo.

    I put the potatoes in about 2 hours before serving, the carrots and mushrooms in about 1 hour before serving.
    I cook my pot roasts in my cast iron dutch oven in the oven.

    I have always cook my roast this way. I just peel the potatoes and cut them in 4ths. If you use this size, they won't fall apart. I put them all together in the morning and when I get home from work: make a little brown gravy and dinner is ready.

    My mom just couldn't believe it the first time she watched me do it this way. She didn't think the carrots would ever be done when the roast and potatoes were.

    I also add some onion slices in mine.

    I just had the roast, I was at work when it was finished. It turned out great. The potatoes were firm, not at all mushy, and the carrots were just right too.
    Turned out so good that there is hardly any left to make hash for breakfast tomorrow, darn it, that's one of my favorite things about roast.
    Star, just do it, and don't tell Syd, or tell her she will just have to go hungry, it is such a great way to season the roast. Yummy.
    Can't wait to make my hash tomorrow morning, small portion that it will be, because the gravy is so darned good with it.
    Thanks for all the tips,
