Cooking Thursday

Usually when I make a roast I cook it separately and have potatoes and veggies with it.
Last week I decided to make a pot roast in the crock pot.  It's nice to have it all done with no last minute fuss!

Crock pot Pot Roast

1 beef roast
Kitchen Bouquet or other browning sauce
Small redskin potatoes, cleaned and halved
baby carrots
1 large onion, quartered

Place roast in crockpot  and brush with browning sauce.  Add water to bottom of crock pot, so there is about 1/2 inch in bottom.  Cook on high for 6 hours.
Add potatoes and carrots - quantity of your choice.  Add quartered onion.  Cook on low for 4 hours or until veggies are tender.

*I often start the roast the day before, cooking it for 2-3 hours.  I then shorten the time a little the next day.    I've found the longer it cooks the more tender the meat, and we like it to fall apart!

yummy....nothing like a slow cooked roast that is fork tender! And there are so many things to do with the leftovers!

Looks good. We cook 80% of everything in the crock pot, especially beef roast and veggies. No mess, and one dish meals are the best.

Falling apart is good in this case! That looks delicious and smells great too. :~D

I love a good pot roast, and one of the reasons I enjoy them in the crockpot is because they get all juicy and tender.

Now you have me craving pot roast :)
