Simple Beef Pot Roast
I love a good pot roast, especially when the weather starts to cool down and we head into fall. This recipe was in the little cookbook that came with my slow cooker, so I thought I would give it a try.
It came out nice and tender, no need for a knife. And it tasted good, it could have used a bit more something, I'm not sure what, but some sort of spice. Maybe garlic? Other than that Ed and I both LOVED it.
1 (3-4lb) Boneless beef roast
1/2 cup water or beef broth (I used the beef broth)
3 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
2 large carrots, thinly sliced (I just got a bag of baby carrots and put a generous handful in)
1 onion, sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Put vegetables in bottom of stoneware, salt and pepper meat, then place in pot on top of vegetables. Add liquid. Cover and cook on LOW 10 hours or HIGH 6 hours. (I did the low setting.)
