THE LAZIEST SUNDAY ROAST RECIPES EVER

9 LUSCIOUS RECIPES FOR COOKING A WHOLE ROAST DINNER THE EASY WAY: AIR FRYER, SLOW COOKER OR SINGLE TRAY

Oh, there’s nothing more British than a Sunday Roast. So much so that we are known as Les Rosbif by our French neighbours. And there really isn’t anything much more wonderful than a big old plate of roast.

But, you know those Sundays when you really want you and your family to tuck into a sumptuous roast dinner, but you really can’t face the thought of actually cooking one… but you aren’t best placed to head out to eat….?

These are the times when you need to know a lazy way to cook a Sunday roast, and I have just the roundup for you. I’ve got recipes for cooking a whole roast in an air fryer, a slow cooker and using a single tray in the oven.

Not only are these recipes super quick and easy to prepare, they are also super easy to clean up afterwards.

AIR FRYER ROASTS

Let me count the ways I love my air fryer... Honestly, it never ceases to amaze me how useful and multitasking our air fryer is. My most recent challenge-to-self was to cook a whole roast meal in it. In case you feel the urge to try cooking a whole roast in your own air fryer, I've rounded up a few really spot-on recipes for you to choose from.

SLOW COOKER MEAT ROASTS

Sometimes, you just want to set the slow cooker and go, knowing that when you return, you'll have a gorgeous meal ready to eat. Roasts aren't necessarily something that is immediately associated with slow cooking, but actually, you can end up with really juicy succulent meat by cooking it this way. So, what's not to love?!

TRAY BAKE / ONE TRAY ROASTS

The thing I love most about tray bake / one tray roasts is how the flavours mix and meld together. The thing I love second most is how much less washing up there is to do afterwards! Here's a selection of delish roasts you can do in a single tray.
