New England Pot Roast – Best Easy Meal

Disclosure New England Pot Roast #shop10

Family meals are so important. I have read many studies and heard news reports about how family mealtime is an important part of the family experience. It’s a time to talk, share and spend time together.

Our family has almost every dinner together {waiting when necessary for everyone to be home at the same time} but my biggest problem is What to Cook???? As a working mom I find that most nights the quick and easy route is the one I take and that doesn’t always translate to good old-fashioned home cooking.  I work on Sundays but that is still the one day of the week that I try to make something Sunday Dinner worthy and thanks to Kraft Recipe Makers that’s easier than I ever imagined.

This past Sunday I had to work as usual but spent 15 minutes {yes, just 15 minutes!} before work preparing this delicious New England Pot Roast.  It honestly was so easy that I couldn’t take all the compliments for it later that night when my husband, the boys and I had our special meal.  I came clean and let them know that all I needed was a box of Kraft Recipe Makers and the ingredients listed right on the back of the box: a roast, red potatoes, carrots and an onion {Am I the only one that forgets my shopping list at home most of the time??? The back of the box list of ingredients was a lifesaver for me}.

1 boneless beef chuck roast (2 1/2 pounds)

1 lb. small red potatoes, quartered

1 lb. baby carrots

1 onion, cut into wedges


  1. Add meat and vegetables to slow cooker.
  2. Top with Simmer Sauce {there are two sauces in the box, one for now and one for later}
  3. Cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 6 to 8 Hours.
  4. STIR in Finishing Sauce, increase heat to HIGH; cook, covered, 15 minutes.


Easy and Delicious!

My family loved the taste {the aroma was making them hungry for most of the day} and they asked if we could have this again ~ a win-win situation ~ I get an easy to make quick family meal and they get all the tastes and memories of a good home-cooked meal.

The Kraft Recipe Makers come in several flavor combinations with the options of Slow Cooker, Skillet or Oven and each box offers several recipe options.  You can find the Kraft Recipe Makers in the Pasta Aisle {here’s alink to where I found it}.
