Pot Roast

What is better then coming home to a delicious smelling house and you have a great meal already ready for you!!! Nothing is better then that!!!  Unless your husband made a fabulous dinner himself but mine doesn’t cook. :) So that wont happen for me ha ha.  This is one of my all time favorite meals to make when its cold outside in the fall or winter. I love how it smells when you get home and you know tonight’s dinner is going to be all comfort!!! This slow cooking pot roast will melt in your mouth and is so delicious, simple, and did i mention yet super tender!!!! This recipe is throwing a bunch of things in one pot that will take 5 minutes for you to prepare. Set it on low for the day an let it cook!!!! I hope you enjoy this Comfort Classic as much as I do!!!


Here’s what you’ll need….

1 Small to medium size rump roast
1 envelope beefy onion soup mix
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1 cups water
1 can of beef broth
salt and pepper, to taste
1 small bag of baby carrots
1 medium yellow onion, sliced
4 stalks of celery, sliced
1 Tsp of Garlic Powder


You may add chunks of potatoes but I like to make mashed potatoes with this and use the broth and make gravy!!!

First slice up your onion and celery.

Next add you beef on top of them. Sprinkle your roast with salt, pepper and garlic.

Now add in your veggies on top of the roast.


Now sprinkle your envelope mixes over the top and add your water and beef broth.

 

NOW put the lid on it!!!

Set crock pot on low and let it cook for at least 8-10 hours. I let mine cook for about 12 hours. The meat will fall apart, and all the veggies were super tender. I always put this in the crock pot before work and then when I get home I will make my mashed potatoes for it as well…


To make your gravy…. 
Take your broth from your crock pot and place in sauce pan. Slowly whisk in flour. Do not heat yet!!! The broth should be warm from the crock pot. Stir in as much flour until you get the consistency that you would like. 

I also don’t strain my broth because I like when my gravy has texture from the onion, beef and celery as well…

Pour gravy over mashed potatoes and your pot roast! Enjoy!!!
