One of my all-time favorite crock-pot meals is pot roast! It’s a dinner classic and can feed our family for days!
Unfortunately, the way I used to make pot roast included dried soup mixes and cream soups that contain ingredients we prefer to avoid, like wheat flour, soy, and MSG.
I tried and tried making a pot roast without cream soups but it always seemed to turn out dry and flavorless.
Well, I recently discovered a “secret ingredient” that makes my roast so tender and delicious that it is making my mouth water right now just typing this!
What is the secret ingredient? Applesauce! Now, before you wrinkle your nose at the idea, the roast will not taste like applesauce at all! It merely gives it a pleasant sweet flavor.
I’m also sharing my super easy gluten-free gravy recipe! No flour or cornstarch required; you simply use cooked vegetables to thicken the gravy.
