Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast
As we work our way through our freezer meals that we prepared, this one is topping my list of favorites! I love doing freezer slow cooker meals because they are so easy to prepare on your freezer cooking prep day! All you need to do for the slow cooker meals is toss the ingredients in a freezer safe storage bag then freeze and when you are ready to serve pour into the slow cooker.
For this recipe, I actually purchased a large roast then cut it in half to use for two different roast recipes. This made the most sense for my husband and I since it would just be us eating the meal.
I thought the cranberry gave it the boost of flavor it needed to make this a delicious, easy meal!
- 3 Lb Beef Roast
- 1 Can Whole Cranberry Sauce
- 1 Package Onion Soup Mix
- 1 Cup Beef Broth
- 1 Tsp Ground Ginger
- 1 Tsp Ground Nutmeg
- 2 Cups Water (Note: If you are doing this as a freezer meal, add this when you are ready to cook and serve.)
Spray a 5 quart slow cooker with non stick spray, then add in all ingredients. Let this cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours until roast is fully cooked.
Freezer Cooking Preparation: In a freezer safe storage bag, combine all ingredients except the water. When you are ready to serve, simply dump the frozen contents from the bag into the slow cooker and add 2 cups of water. This will cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
