Pot Roast

Unfortunately, school is officially in full swing and my days are getting longer and busier! Once things get more hectic, I start making more and more meals in my crockpot.  I love love love crockpot meals.  I’s so nice to come home to warm cooked meal after a long day.

One day this week I made a pot roast in the crockpot and it turned out perfect.  It’s so quick and easy to put together and it’s a tasty meal – especially when it’s a little chilly outside.  I’m not sure why I associate pot roast with cold weather, maybe because it reminds of of beef stew.  Either way, this is a great meal to plan on making whenever you know you’re not going to have time to make a yummy dinner!

 

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 lb pot roast
  • 6 small red potatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 cups baby carrots (I usually use large carrots, but didn’t have any)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 packet of lipton onion soup mix
  • 2 cups of water
Instructions:
1.  Place small potatoes, carrots, 1/2 large onion sliced in large chunks, 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of pepper, and 1 tbsp olive oil all in crackpot.
2. Trim excess fat of pot roast and place in crockpot on top of vegetables.
3. Slice other 1/2 of onion and place on top of pot roast.  Add 1 packet of lipton onion soup mix and 2 cups of water.
4.  Cook on low for 8 -9 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
