Pot Roast in the Crock Pot

March 20, 2012

This is new for me.  Using a crock pot is still pretty new to me.  I am beginning to use it a bit more (much to my Mother's delight) and finding it very easy to use.

Now, Pot Roast?  Don't laugh...never made it.  Nope. Never.  We aren't huge red meat eaters, so, if never really occurred to me. But, with my new found crock pot ability..I figured..hey, why,not? A little red meat sounded really tasty.

This recipe is pretty basic, so, you can add, subtract, any type of seasoning you would like. I want to point out though, it does take quite a bit of time.  So, if you eat around 5-6 pm, be prepared to start it early!

  1. I love my mom's pot roast--the sad part is I can't find what cut she used (English Roast?) at my grocery store and so far none of my substitutions have come out right--it's a quest now! :P
