so Chris made this today! when I walked in the house it smelled so good! it tasted really good too. the meat was really tender and just fell apart when you’d pick it up. totally neglected to take a picture, and realized after the leftovers were put away! next time, since we’ll definitely make it again.
Crockpot Pot Roast from Paved with Good Intentions
1 Tbsp oil
beef roast – used beef chuck roast 2.3 lbs
4 carrots, sliced
4 medium potatoes, roughly chopped
2 envelopes onion soup mix
3/4 cup water
1) In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium high heat and brown the roast. I know, I know – this doesn’t really seal in any moisture, but frankly, I’ve been doing this for year and old habits die hard. If you don’t want to add this step, leave it out.
2) Arrange carrots and potatoes in crock pot, put roast on top.
3) Combine water and onion soup mix in skillet. If you did step one, this is a good time to scrape the pan for yummy roast drippings from the browning. If you skipped that step, it will still be good. Promise, but you can combine the water and soup mix in a bowl and not dirty a skillet for no reason.
4) Pour soup mixture over roast and veggies.
5) Cook on low 9 hours.
