How Long to Cook Roast in Crockpot

Most times a two to three pound roast can be ready in about six hours in the crockpot on the high setting. You can use the low setting and the roast would be ready to eat in approximately nine hours.

Since this beef roast recipe is also cooked with vegetables you will have a complete meal ready to serve.

Always be sure to use a meat thermometer to ensure your beef roast is at least 145 degrees. The USDA is a great resource for food safety and proper cooking temperatures for meats.

Crockpot Roast With Vegetables

Adding carrots, celery, and even mushrooms to the crockpot beef roast recipe ensures you will have a complete and hearty meal to serve. You will need to brown the roast before it goes in the slow cooker, but that’s the most work you do.

After the roast is browned you will be adding everything to the crockpot. Once you put the lid on it your dinner will be ready when you are. No fuss cooking is the best.

What Size Crockpot Should I Use?

For this recipe, I would use a 7-quart crockpot. If you are making for a larger group and want to double your recipe a 10-quart crockpot is also available. You may also want to use a crockpot liner which allows for less mess when it is time to clean up.
