Confession session

I have always feared the pot roast.
There, i said it!
Well this week i decided it was time to put my big girl panties on and get over it!

Thanks to my nesties for the recipe and the confidence to just do it!

Pot Roast


3 Pound(s) beef pot roast
1 to taste salt
1 to taste steak seasoning or seasoned pepper
1/2 bag baby carrot
4 Clove(s) smashed garlic
1 packet mushroom onion soup mix
1/4 Cup(s) - 1/2 cup wine, beer or vermouth
1/4 Cup(s) - 1/2 cup water
2 peeled & quartered onion
1 to thicken liquid flour or cornstarch
(I also added potatoes)


Coat all sides of roast with salt ( I always use kosher) and seasoned pepper. Brown in dry skillet on all sides. Toss all the veggies in the bottom of the Crockpot, top with meat, then add soup mix, top with liquids. Cover and cook on low for the longest time your Crockpot allows. When it's done cooking, take the meat out and stir in a little bit of flour or cornstarch to thicken up the sauce put the meat back in and serve straight out of the pot.
