Crockpot Pot Roast and Gravy

So sorry I haven't posted in a while!! My schedule just got a bit crazy which meant I wasn't cooking much. Though it was nice having a break from the kitchen, it has been nice getting back to some home cooked meals.

I love crockpot recipes. You throw a bunch of stuff in and a full meal comes out! I don't think I know anyone who doesn't like crockpot meals!! So here is a new favorite recipe!

5 lb Roast
1 Large Yellow Onion
2 Large Carrots
1 10oz Can of Cream of Mushroom (you can use any of "Cream of" soup, but I like mushroom)
1 McCormick Pot Roast Seasoning Packet
1 1/4 Cup of Water
Fresh Rosemary (Optional, if you have it great, if not, it will taste just as good!)

First mix the Cream of Mushroom soup with the Pot Roast Seasoning and water. Cut the onion into 1/8 wedges. Cut the carrot in half, and then cut those pieces in half again lengthwise (basically cut them into big carrot sticks). Place the pot roast, carrots, onion and rosemary (if using) into the crockpot and pour the soup mixture on top. Cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours. I really recommend cooking it on low instead of high, it tends to end up being a bit more tender. Every so often I would spoon some of the soup mixture over the roast as it was cooking, but if you aren't home to do that it will be perfectly fine! Once it's done you can use that soup mixture as the gravy! It's so yummy!

And that's it! If you want another side to go along with the carrots and onions, I would recommend my Australian Style Potato Wedges found HERE, or you can do just some simple Green Beans found HERE.

Hope you all enjoy! I promise this is super simple and anyone can do it, give it a try!

  2. Easy enough; I'm not a young cook by any means, having learned to cook when I was eight y.o., and to bake when I was nine, and I'm now 65, closer to 66 than. Still, sometimes it's difficult to downsize meals such as a roast, and since I live alone, I don't always want tons of leftovers, so learning something new, as in how to make smaller portions, is very welcome.
