Another tip…. when you buy a roast that doesn’t fit quite right in your crockpot if you freeze it as packaged, place the roast in your crockpot before you freeze it. Put the crockpot (insert only) into the freezer and freeze meat.
Once it is frozen, remove from crock, wrap and return to freezer until ready to cook…. when you take it out, it will fit into your crockpot.
