I have to admit our families are spoiled because Dad is a farmer who raises a few head of cattle each year along with corn and soybeans. He is generous enough to help fill our freezers with beef – including a variety of roasts – a couple times a year. (Our friend, Sarah, explains the different cuts of beef on her blog. Her post is super helpful even to these two farm girls.)

But, even if you don’t have a dad who provides freezer beef, I am sure that your family enjoys an old-fashioned meal of beef and potatoes just as much as ours. It is such an easy one-pot meal, especially when you fix it in the crock pot.

The key to fixing beef roasts is to cook them low and slow (unless you have an Instant Pot) so they are nice and tender. We grew up with the traditional roast, potatoes and carrots almost every Sunday growing up. It is still one of our favorite meals.
