Let your Crockpot do the Work

Main Dish Crockpot Recipe for Families

Now let your Crockpot do all the work while you go about your busy day. It will need about 5 hours on high or 10-11 hours on low. It will not only smell amazing cooking, but will be the most succulent, flavorful roast you’ve ever tasted!

Confetti Couscous Side

You can sever your Super Tender BBQ Roast with mashed potatoes, rice, buttered potatoes, or anything else that moves you. Personally, I love serving it with Confetti Couscous – YUM! Not only does it go great with the roast, but it is ready in only 5 minutes.


You need 1/2 red pepper finely chopped, 1 cup (thawed or canned) corn, and a box Cous Cous (I prefer to use Roasted Garlic & Olive Oil)

Note: If you like a little kick, add 1/2 jalapeno pepper for even more color and flavor!

5 minute Confetti Cousoucs Side Dish Recipe

Bring 1 1/2 cup water, 2 TAB extra virgin Olive Oil, seasoning packet, chopped pepper, and corn to a boil. Add couscous, stir, cover, and remove from heat. 5 minutes later fluff with a fork and serve.

Serve Best Ever Crockpot Roast


I like to serve the best ever Crockpot roast on top of a bead of the confetti couscous. Garnish with basil if you like. This is so delicious!
