Pot Roast

I love pot roast.  It is my favorite when I serve it with ketchup for dipping.  I know, not classy but yet still amazing.  One of my favorite things about making a pot roast is that the longer it cooks, the better and more tender it can become.  Some people have issues with allowing their crockpot run when they are not home, I however, am not one of those people.  I love that I can be multi tasking without feeling overwhelmed because dinner is prepped and cooking while I am running errands, visiting family, or working.  The crockpot helps get dinner on the table, now if only it could wash dishes.

2-3 lb pot roast
1 cup water
1 beef bullion cubes
1 packet of onion soup mix

Place the roast in a crockpot.  Mix water, bullion cube, and onion soup.  Pour the mixture over the roast.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours.  As long as there is liquid, the longer it cooks the more tender it will become, at least in my experience.  You can serve this with mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles.  I usually have just the right amount of leftovers to flip into another meal, like pot roast soup or pot roast shepards pie.  The leftovers would also be great with a little BBQ sauce served on a bun, depending on your family size.

  1. I love pot roasts... just had one last night. Onion soup mix with a pot roast in a crockpot is like magic. It doesn't get much better or easier does it?
