One-pan meals or quick-to-fix dinners are a great go-to for your family or Food Tidings meal gifts that are mid-week. Or, sometimes, using the slow-cooker for "fix-it-and-forget-it" meals is a better option to go with. Put ingredients into the slow-cooker or Instapot in the morning, let it cook, stew and marinate all day into a juicy, tender pot of goodness while you get your to-do list done! There’s such a satisfying feeling when you arrive home or get back to the kitchen with a yummy aroma greeting you and filling the air with productive and accomplished vibes.


This super easy pot roast recipe cooks in the slow cooker with carrots, onions, and an incredibly delicious garlic herb gravy! The finished meat is fall apart tender. Serve over mashed potatoes (or add the potatoes to the slow cooker if you prefer) for the ultimate comfort food meal.

Don’t feel rushed, so the meat doesn’t either. Cooking your meat on low for 7 to 8 hours gives you tender meat that shreds easily. Other methods can be used, but this is a tried and true way to ensure tenderness that falls apart in such a pleasing way.


These simple ingredients make an easy, satisfying meal – hearty and comforting for the new parents, a friend recovering from surgery or the family who needs a little meal hug.


Also, the whole thing is Whole30, gluten free, and dairy free; just the thing for sensitive eaters (or anyone!) who needs some good, tasty protein.
