The simple tip for preparing two roasts in the same slow cooker

To prepare two roasts in the same slow cooker, make sure they fit snugly in the base of your crock pot before preparing them—you may want to trim off excess fat, tie the meat with kitchen twine, or sear all sides for extra color and flavor. Next, add twice the ingredients you would use to make one roast, such as carrots, potatoes, onions, and garlic. You’ll also need to double the seasonings, such as bay leaves, dried herbs, peppercorns, or tomato paste, to create a robust broth in which the meat will simmer.

But as mentioned earlier, here comes the big tip; You won’t need to double the amount of water you pour into the slow cooker. The same amount of water you use to cook one cut of meat, whether it’s chuck, brisket, or round roast, will be enough to cook two cuts of roast. Remember that slow cookers have a very low evaporation rate, so the roast will bubble very gently with little risk of dry boiling. The joints will release their delicious, meaty flavors into the liquid to create a rich, alcoholic beverage that can be served as is or reduced to a thicker broth. So, next time you’re tasked with cooking for large batches, double the roasting and prepare a tender meal that requires little extra effort to put together. Just follow the golden rule and double everything except the cooking liquid.
