This slow cooker pot roast recipe, aka 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 3½ pound roast, together with the vegetables, will make about 6 to 8 servings.

Just want to make one very important point. This may not be an original German recipe ... although it tastes like one. Why? Slow cookers are very, very uncommon in Germany!

This recipe is my Mutti's adaptations of her traditional beef roast once she got one here in Canada. 

Above, I omitted the potatoes. Then, I used my immersion blender to blend the rest of the cooked veggies into the sauce. The sauce needed a bit more thickening, so I used a bit of the corn starch slurry. So good!

Mutti's tips on this ...

  • Often, she browned the meat 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, she's put everything (except the potatoes) in the pot in the evening and keep in fridge.
  • In the morning, she'd add the potatoes (pushing them to the bottom so they are covered in liquid) and then turn the slow cooker on.
