When do I add frozen vegetables to my crock pot?

November 29th, 2012

Im roasting a 2 pound pot roast in my crock pot for the first time and im going on low for 8 hours… When should I add my frozen vegetables? I was thinking about half way through. Should I defrost them first? Thanks!
Also, its actually 1.7 pounds…is 8 hours too long?

I would defrost them first because most crock pots say in their flyers not to put frozen food in them, but some of them do allow that, so read your booklet that came with it. I would put them in the last hour – they are already cooked and you don’t want to overcook them. You are basically heating them up. An hour should allow them to take on the flavor of the meat, too.

Here is a great site of crock pot tips – it addresses both doing frozen foods and doing vegetables:

    You don’t need to defrost the veggies before putting them in the crock pot.I wouldn’t put the veggies in for more than an hour to avoid them turning to mush.

    I have overcooked so many things in a crock pot it is incredible (and a stupid waste), so my source is experience.
