Frozen Roast in Slow Cooker – The Typical Mom

Frozen meat slow cooker recipes

Easy frozen roast in slow cooker directions is here! I forgot to thaw your chuck roast for dinner, no problem. Use your Crockpot.

Some time ago we shared how to make an Instant Pot frozen roast and a frozen roast in Instant Pot that is tender with fork.

If you don’t have that machine, you probably have this one, so I thought I’d share this method as well. Here we go.

Let’s talk a little bit about slow cooking, okay? First of all, I have a few different varieties and I love them all. Each has an occasion to be used as…

  1. This is my programmable 6-quart favorite with a locking lid, so it’s also great to take
  2. to a meal.

  3. If you just want to serve a few appetizers, you should get this one that sits next to each other
  4. .

  5. I prefer not to use coatings, but simply to sprinkle olive oil inside before adding my food for easy cleanings.

Let me give you a look at my pretty thang I recently bought. It goes with my kitchen, so I can leave it on the countertop all the time. 😉


Yes, I’m forgetful too, don’t feel bad. If many times you plan to throw away your ingredients in the morning but forgot to thaw, do not worry. I share how to cook frozen meat with you here.


mean I try to prefer that it’s not rock hard when I start cooking, but sometimes things just don’t go as planned. If you remember, I also have instructions for that below.


Slow cooking can really save the day I say. If you have a Ninja Foodi or Instant Pot, they have a slow cook setting, but I don’t recommend using it. It doesn’t work well at all.

Slow-cooking frozen foods actually work pretty well. Of course, I prefer to thaw the meat beforehand, but that doesn’t always work.

I also cook frozen meat in my air fryer. You can read about the best frozen foods to learn about the air fryer here.

carrots and potatoes

If you’ve thought ahead and it’s not rock hard, follow our recipe for roasted onion soup mix with clay pot. Both are easy recipes that make a wonderfully tender meat dinner.

If your piece is much larger than ours, the cooking time may need to be adjusted for longer. Once it’s tender, it’s out of the danger zone and ready to serve as tacos or carne asada with rice.

3-4 pounds is typical. He feeds us 5 with some saved for the next day easily. I usually don’t buy more than that.


  • suggest broth over water, but I really use what I have on hand.

Can I put frozen pork roast on the Crockpot?

The timing for this should be very similar. With pork just make sure it reaches a safe temperature inside before serving. If it falls apart with tweezers, that’s usually the sign made.

This is a great recipe to serve in the following ways:

  1. Shred and throw into small tortillas topped with salsa, guacamole and cheese
  2. .

  3. Serve on top of a bed of mashed potatoes with carrots from the air fryer if you don’t want to add vegetables to the pot at the end.
  4. Stuff the baked potatoes with some sauce on top for a really healthy dish.

Take a pack of those Hawaiian rolls and make sliders, they are always fun to serve at dinner time with the kids.

Or simply serve on the plate as is. If you want to make sauce, simply pour the drops from the pot into a saucepan over medium/high heat. Beat some cornstarch to thicken and let it bubble for a few minutes.

how long can you keep the leftover roast?

Let it reach room temperature. Then store it in freezer bags or airtight containers in the refrigerator. You can safely store for up to 4 days, after that discard.

How is leftover roast meat moistened?

The best way to reheat the leftover roast is to add a little sauce on top before heating. I like to dice it and throw it with something damp like this. Then microwave in 30-second increments stirring between times.

What can I do with leftover hard roast?

Well, I mean if you follow our instructions, it shouldn’t be difficult at all, but the more it gets cold, the drier it will be. Always moisten with broth or some kind of sauce.
