  • Definitely! I have never cooked a roast that was thawed, I always put them in the crock pot frozen. It just takes longer of course, and I don't put any potatoes or veggies in, just my seasonings & some liquid.

  • I have done this, but your slow cooking time is going to be MUCH longer. Usually I slow cook my roast on low for about 6 hours (thawed) then swtich to high for the last 2hrs when I put in my carrots and potatoes. When I have done it without it being thawed I usually have to cook the roast between 8-9hrs on low and then switch to high for the last two hours. Both ways it has come out right.

  • Yep. It just stakes longer. I put mine in frozen around 10 am and it's done by 530 for dinner. I like mine to fall apart though.

  • Yep, most of the time I put the meat in frozen with seasonings and such (around 9am or so) and then I don't add veggies until about 2, and then it is all ready by 5pm.
