How to Prep Mustard Crusted Slow Cooker Roast
Prepping ahead of time makes it so easy to toss dinner in the crockpot just before you head to work. This mustard crusted slow cooker roast is so simple to put together and will only take you 5 minutes or less!
To begin, mix the salt and pepper, dried thyme, olive oil, and dijon mustard in a small bowl. This mixture will serve as the rub for the slow cooker roast. If you are out of dijon mustard, then you can substitute honey mustard or spicy brown mustard in place of the dijon.
After that, rub or brush the mustard mixture all over the roast. I also like to give the roast another light layer of salt and pepper at this point. Store the roast in a large zipper bag or large container with lid. Also, be sure to write the sell by date of your meat on the bag so you know how long it can sit in the refrigerator.
How to Cook Mustard Crusted Slow Cooker Roast
Once cooking day arrives, put the prepped slow cooker roast in the crockpot and set to low for 8 hours.
While the slow cooker roast is cooking, heat up the mashed potatoes and cook the green beans. To spice up your green beans a little, try this recipe for slow cooker ranch veggies. You can change up the vegetables for that recipe to use just green beans or any other veggies you like!
