I don’t know about you, but I am always on the look out for quick family meals. Especially with school coming up! That means a lot more rushing about and less time at home to create a delicious home cooked meal for my family. I don’t want to be sacrificing flavor and quality of the meal simply because I can’t spend as much time on dinner.
So I absolutely love using a meal kit to help make a traditional favorite home meal a lot easier to create! I tried out a new one this weekend and my family is all in love with it! And it saved me a few hours worth of work too! Who wouldn’t love that? It was super easy so I’m quite excited to share with you how to create an easy New England Pot Roast with very little time thanks to Kraft Recipe Makers!

I love my pot roasts. I grew up with pot roast being the staple Sunday dinner. When I was little, everyone would all gather at my Mom’s house with my grandparents after church for a delicious pot roast. Now while we don’t have pot roast every Sunday in our family anymore, we do however still love to enjoy a delicious and tender pot roast every other week.
This weekend we wanted a delicious and hearty meal for when we returned home from a day out to the splash park. Thus, the need for easy ready-made meals recipe that called for the crock pot!
Easy New England Pot Roast Recipe
- 1 Pot Roast, Beef or Pork variety
- 1 box Kraft Recipe Makers New England Pot Roast Flavor
- 1/2 Sliced Onions
- Add meat and vegetables into the slow cooker
- Top with the Simmer sauce from the Kraft Recipes makers kit
- Cover with lid and cook on low 8-10 hours (or on High 6-8 hours)
- minutes before serving stir in the finishing sauce from the Kraft Recipe Makers kit.
- Increase heat to High and cook covered for 15 minutes.
- Serve hot.
I absolutely love how easy this recipe was to make. It seriously took out the quest of what to cook for dinner tonight. I just took about 5 minutes that morning and threw everything into the crock pot. And walked away. We went about our day. Had a blast at the Splash Park. And I didn’t even worry about dinner. We got home and cleaned up and it was time for me to add in the finishing sauce. I turned it to High and let it finish cooking while we set the table and prepared for dinner.
The end result was an easy family meal that everyone loved. The roast was so very tender and juicy! The flavor was amazing. I didn’t even need to add anything to the potatoes. They were perfect to eat just as they were!
Even the husband enjoyed the flavor and didn’t even add any hot sauce. That like never happens! And we even ate all the left overs the very next day! It saves well in the fridge and makes a delicious second meal. There is nothing left at all! It has been requested that I get more of these easy meal maker kits added to our Food storage supplies so I can make this meal more often. I have to agree that this is a great idea!
There are so many other flavors of the Kraft Recipe makers that I can’t wait to try out! Like the Hickory BBQ Beef or the Chicken Bruschetta Pasta.
