Crockpot Roast & Veggies in foil

I saw this post at Lynn's Kitchen Adventures about putting your crockpot veggies in foil on top of the roast and thought it was a great idea. I hate mushy potatoes that taste like the roast, although I love the carrots that have absorbed all the juices. So I thought I'd give it a try!

So I put my roast in my crockpot and seasoned it like usual, and placed my carrots on top.

Then put my cut potatoes on a big piece of foil, seasoned them with salt & pepper and wrapped it up.

I placed it on top of the roast and carrots in the crockpot:

It cooked on Low for 8 hours, and when we couldn't take the wonderful smell anymore, I opened up the potatoes and they were perfect!

It worked so well that I'm planning on trying other veggies on top of crockpot meat and see how they all turn out!

  1. i'm totally with you on the potato thing. great tip!!

  2. I've read about using crumpled up foil to fill up the "dead" space if you have a big crockpot and a small roast, but never about putting the vegetables in there until I read about at Lynn's Kitchen (like you) Seeing it twice makes me really want to try this!
