Weekend pot roast

What’s perfect for a Sunday evening dinner? Meat and potatoes that cooked in the crock pot all day. Tender meat, warm and filling potatoes and vegetable with minimal work. Perfect. So do yourself a favor: stop at the grocery store on the way home tonight and pick up the stuff to make this easy roast so you can have a relaxing Sunday.

Salt, pepper, and rub herbs(thyme, rosemary and oregano) into a 2-3 pound beef pot roast. Place pot roast into bottom of crock pot.

Cover roast with assorted vegetables. I used 3 medium red potatoes and 2 purple potatoes cut into chunks. Two stalks of celery cut into 3 in pieces. A handful of baby carrots and a yellow onion cut into wedges. Pour vegetables over meat.

In a large bowl, stir together 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 package of dry onion soup mix and 3/4 cup water. Pour mixture over vegetables. This will make a gravy for the meat as it cooks.

Set crock pot to low and let cook for 8 hours. I did take off the lid after about 6 hours to stir the vegetables. After 8 hours, you will have an extremely tender roast in its own gravy with a side of vegetables.

Next time I will add more seasonings as it was a little bland, but nothing a little salt and pepper couldn’t take care of.
