Cooking a Frozen Roast?

When using your recipe for a frozen roast does it come out well or medium?
Thank you for answering my question promptly!

Editor's Note Some answers below recommend using a slow cooker with a frozen roast. This is not a safe practice as the meat comes up to temperature too slowly to avoid bacterial growth. The roast will be fully cooked but may make your family ill.

Too many factors to be able to tell you for sure. Are you roasting in the oven or a slow cooker. Oven it will probable come out well done all depends on oven temperature and how long you leave it in.

Slow cooker will come out really soft and juicy.

It depends on the method of your cooking and how long you do it :)

If you want to cook it frozen, I'd cook it in a slow cooker on low for around 6 to 8 hours. You can always check this during the cooking process and remove it when you have the results you want.

Ive read that using a slow cooker with frozen meat can cause bacterial growth in the meat. Has that changed?

I have a pressure cooker at home that cooked a frozen roast as well.

The thing about a slow cooker like a crock pot is you don't get any kind of searing or "crust" on your roast. That is where a lot of the flavor comes from.

It doesn't come out as tender cooking it in the slow cooker as it fits from the oven. Not sure why, I've done it both ways and the oven is MUCH better

One should never cook a frozen roast in a slow cooker for food safety reasons, It is simply below temp way too long.

Large cuts of frozen meat should not be cooked in slow cookers due to length of time meat's temperature is subject to bacteria growth!

Do NOT use a slow cooker for a frozen roast, as it will not allow the roast to get up to safe temperature quickly enough.

You can not cook a frozen roast in the slow cooker. It will not be brought up to temperature safely and will cause bacteria that could kill you!

Not safe! Do not listen to this advice unless you're trying to get people really sick!

Cooking meat from frozen in a slow cooker can still allow bacteria to grow and may make your family sick.
Do not do this

When I've cooked roast in the oven or slow cooker, and even my Instant Pot, there has never been any pink in the meat, when I've followed the regular directions. The roast turns out soft and juicy each time. Hope that helps :)
