Easy Dinner #1: Chunky Pot Roast

3 Apr

Dinner has been a challenge the last couple of months. Abbie loooves to be held all the time,  so for me to commit  20-40 minutes to making dinner is a bit of a struggle most evenings. It bums me out because I have always loved having dinner ready when Justin comes home (not just so I can feel like Betty Crocker, but I like to have a consistent schedule. I might have OCD).

All that said, I need to confess to you all: I am OBSESSED with my crock-pot…. OB.SESSED.

They are so handy- I just throw everything in (as long as I remember to plan ahead) , let it cook all day, and enjoy in the evening! Here is an easy pot roast recipe that I made yesterday and, oh man, was it delish!

Ingredients:

  • pot roast (I used a nicely marbled 2 pounder)
  • 5 potatoes cut into chunks
  • 2 cups baby carrots
  • 4 celery stalks chopped
  • 1 medium onion cut into chunks (I was out of onions so I used onion powder to taste. Still yummy!)
  • 5 cloves chopped garlic (to taste…we love garlic!)
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth (unsalted, all-natural)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp. oregano
  • 5 dashes Worcestershire sauce (or as I say, “wer-sher-sher”)

Step-By-Step:

Chop up the veggies

season all sides of the meat

place meat in a hot pan to brown the sides

once all sides are browned, place at the bottom of the crockpot 

Add potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and seasonings. Cook on Low for 8-10 hours.

Voila!
