Pot Roast in a Slow Cooker

by Darlyn
(Casper, Wyoming)

1 pound roast
some potatoes, onions, carrots, and whatever you like with your roast.
1 pkg of roast seasoning or season as you like

Put all of this into a small slow cooker that is plugged into your inverter (or if you have a 12volt one, plug into cigarette lighter).

Place on floor or a secure place so as not to tip over.

Then DRIVE until you can no longer stand the wonderful smell filling up your truck.

Stop the truck and enjoy your delicious meal without having to do anything except open the lid of your slow cooker.

How we cooked delicious pot roast in a truck
by: Vicki Simons

Hello Darlyn,

When my husband and I team drove -- and again when I rode with him when he was a solo driver -- we cooked delicious pot roast in a large truck numerous times. We didn't use a seasoning pack; instead we used beef bouillon.

You can see our preparation here

and read about using crock pot slow cookers here

Some truck drivers are restricted as to the amount of electricity they can pull from their trucks' batteries, such as through a 12-volt cigarette lighter type outlet. Drivers who are limited this way -- and desire to use a non-12-volt-powered appliance -- will need to make sure that the appliance does not pull more power than a 12-volt style inverter can deliver:

Don't forget that if you fix a pot roast in a slow cooker and you have leftovers, you will need to properly preserve them in a cooling device such as an ice chest, compact refrigerator or thermoelectric cooler:

We have enjoyed many meals of pot roast (fresh and leftovers) on the road as well as many other types of slow cooker meals. Cooking in one's truck is a great way to save money as opposed to eating in a truck stop restaurant.

For all professional truck drivers, we wish you safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road.

Best regards,
Vicki Simons
