One thing I love to do when the weather cools down is break out the crock pot. I love the smell of dinner simmering throughout the house. Crock pots are perfect vessels for cooking comfort food. Who doesn’t love comfort food? Yesterday I tried a new Pot Roast recipe and it turned out perfect. I didn’t even have to slice the roast. It just fell apart:) If you really want a one pot meal just throw some carrots and potatoes in the crockpot before putting the meat on top and you’re all set.
Crock Pot Caramelized-Onion Pot Roast
- 4 lbs boneless beef chuck roast
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
