My husband’s favorite meal his grandmother made was her roast. He still asks for me to make it sometimes. (Although it’s not like his grandma’s, I never could master her cooking “techniques” if you want to call them that)

Pot roast seasoning

The best way to season a pot roast is with lots and lots of salt and pepper. It seems like too much, but a lot of meat requires a lot of seasoning. I love to use thyme or rosemary on my beef roast as well and lots of garlic. We always use our steak seasoning on ours.

You can use a knife to poke a hole in the roast and stick cloves in the holes. That helps permeate the meat with the garlic flavor. Onions and carrots in your cooking method make the roast taste great too!

Air fryer roast beef

You can even cook a beef roast in the air fryer. There’s just about nothing that thing won’t make! It puts flavor on the outside of food that is unique.

I sure do love the convenience of dumping stuff in the crock pot and walking away and coming back that evening to dinner, though. Don’t you? So don’t worry about what’s for dinner tonight! We have you covered.
