pot roast

I cannot believe how long I have had this little site without putting out a good ol’ pot roast recipe. Weird, huh? That’s what I thought.

Which, made me start thinking of all of the “good ol” recipes that I have never done…brownies, apple pie,  ice cream…you know good ol’ food. Man, I am craving brownies now. Why’d I have to type that?

I know it’s summer, but pot roast is actually a good summer food- especially when you use a crock pot~ no heating up the house-woohoo!


I’m sure you know this, but you do get a much richer flavor if you brown the meat beforehand:

Yeah, like that.

I did mine up with carrots and onions… because I was out of celery and I wanted potatoes on the side.

There it is all cozy in ti’s veggie bed.

Pour a herbed broth over it, and turn your pot on…. dinner is done! Yum!
