This veal pot roast is cooked to perfection in the slow cooker. The veal and accompanying vegetables come out incredibly tender and juicy. Serve it with mashed potatoes and gravy for a delicious meal. 


  • 3 to 4 lb. veal pot roast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Brown the veal on all sides in the oil in a large skillet. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  2. Put the vegetables into the crockpot; place veal roast on top.
