This slow cooker pot roast recipe ("Rinderschmorbraten im Langsamkocher") is so quick to put together in the morning.
It's an easy way how to make pot roast that will have dinner ready, almost the moment you walk in the door.
Use a beef rump roast or a chuck roast, well-trimmed of fat.
A 3 to 3 1/2 pound roast, together with the vegetables, will make about 6 - 8 servings.
Often, the meat is browned first when using slowcooker recipes. It does add to the flavor, but in this case, it really isn't necessary, unless you really, really want to.
Even faster, put everything (except the potatoes) in the pot in the evening and keep in fridge.
In the morning, add the potatoes (pushing them to the bottom so they are covered in liquid) and turn it on.
Just want to make one very important point. This is NOT a German recipe ... although it tastes like one. Why? Slow cookers are very, very uncommon in Germany! This recipe is my Mutti's once she got one here in Canada.
Quick crockpot recipes make it easy to have dinner ready especially on those hectic days. This pot roast is one that works great for company as well on those busy days.

Here's what some of my fans say:
Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!
Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.
Lori S: This is the best split pea soup I ever made! It disappeared faster than any other soup I have made. It is so easy to prepare the night before an throw together before I leave for work, I will definitely use it often!
Sunetra C: Das sieht aber lecker aus.
