Dill Pickle Pot Roast Is a Quick and Easy One Pot Juicy Family Meal

It couldn’t get any easier to get a meaty dinner on the table tonight. Toss everything in to your slow cooker and walk away until dinner time.

Pickles! For everyone who isn’t cooking their pickles, you’re missing out on some prickly awesomeness! Not only are those pickles going to make your roast taste amazing, their also going to make sure it’s the most tender and juicy one ever!

I can see how many people might take one look at this recipe and think... OMG that is gross. I assure you.... it was amazing! For anyone that loves dill pickles, the flavors in an odd way really work with the beef. Its not too overpowering, its just the right amount of zing.

Not only does this taste amazing, but its a super easy dinner to make for your family. With a busy after school schedule with my kids, I need quick and easy meals that are not only nutritious but filling. This roast definitely ticks all the boxes for my family!

Pour the jar of pickles over top.

Arrange the pickles around the roast.

Cook on low all day, for 8-10 hours ( to break down the roast). Remove and serve.

The gravy can be strained ( or not! we loved it with the pickle bits) and served over the roast and mashed potatoes.
