    How long does it take to cook a 3 1/2 pound roast in a slow cooker?

    A:

    Allowing for prep times, which includes searing the meat on all sides before putting into the slow cooker, it takes between 8 and 9 hours to cook a roast, such as a beef pot roast, on the low setting. Cooking the roast on the high setting can reduce the cooking time by as much as half. Roasts are typically made in a slow cooker with vegetables in a broth, which can be used to make a gravy.
