MENU: Pot Roast with potatoes, onions and carrots, gravy, rolls
Pot Roast a la Crock Pot
Put the roast inside the crock pot. For each person, add: 1 carrot cut into 2 inch pieces, 1 onion, peeled and 1 potato, quartered. Pour in 1 1/2 cups of water. Sprinkle with pepper. Cook on high for 3 hours if the roast is defrosted- longer if the roast was frozen. Use the juice to make gravy.
I don't know why anyone would cook a roast in the oven any more. The crock pot is so easy and the meat stays juicy and tender. I usually throw everything in the crock pot before church and it is done when we get home. It is wonderful to smell the food cooking when you walk in the door.
