Dinner for the profoundly lazy

Making another slow cooker dinner today: oniony potroast with carrots.


  • Sirloin tip roast (3lbs or so)
  • 1 envelope Knorr onion soup mix
  • Baby carrots (couple of handsful)
  • 2.5 cups water

Put the roast in the crockpot, dump onion mix on top, add carrots, pour in water. Turn on “low” and leave for 8-9 hours. Prep time roughly 2 mins.

I put this on at 9am and the house smells all awesome oniony and yum. I’ll probably serve it with either boiled baby potatoes or maybe roast garlic mash. We’ll see.

I think it might be time to upgrade my slow cooker — I found a fantastic-sounding basic vegetable soup recipe that needs a bigger pot than I have. Luckily even the high end ones are inexpensive.
