MOUTH-WATERING SLOW COOKER ROAST with TENDER HARVEST VEGETABLES

When corn cobbs begin to ripen in their golden husks and the tops of bright orange carrots push their way up through the soil, harvest time has begun. 

Filling my basket with edible gems as I walk up and down straight rows of plantings is one of my favourite things to do. Adding those gems to a recipe that’s filled with comforting, cold-weather goodness is another.  

This slow-cooker roast recipe will fill your home with the smell of tender beef (any cut will do), savory vegetables and fresh herbs. 

After hours of slowly simmering, you’ll have a slow cooker roast and veggie combination that’ll have them following their nose straight to the table. 

The root vegetable options are flexible, so play with your food. Make it perfectly suited to the tastes of you and your family.

In a fast-paced world, full of chaotic days and often challenging nights, the opportunity to tune it all out, and let your slow cooker roast make itself, is one to be savored. Then, enjoy a quiet Sunday supper, reconnecting through lovely, undistracted conversation, over a meal that tastes like safety and comfort. Like home.

Of course, feel free to try this slow cooker roast recipe any day of the week and in any season. Goods from your local farmer’s market or fresh produce section will work just fine. Enjoy.
