Pot Roast Recipe
« on: March 17, 2015, 11:38:08 AM »
I'm making a pot roast for dinner and I thought I'd share my recipe with all of you! I think I'm going to try to post my recipes on here daily :)

-3 lb chuck roast
-olive oil
-1 lb of baby carrots
-1 lb potatoes (peeled & cut into large chunks)
-1 onion (peeled & cut into large chunks)
-1 cup of chicken stock (you can also use beef broth but I was out of it)
-1 tablespoon corn starch

Seasoning mix:
-2 tbsp steak seasoning
-1 tbsp kosher salt
-1 tbsp dried thyme
-1 tbsp dried rosemary

-Combine the seasoning mix in a small bowl and set it aside for now.
-coat the meat with olive oil (I'm quite generous with it! And I rub it in with my hands!)
-Sprinkle 1/3 of the seasoning all over the meat.
-Sear all sides of the meat on a skillet over medium-high heat and then transfer it to a slow cooker.
-place all of the vegetables into a large bowl and drizzle olive oil all over them. Sprinkle the remainder of the seasoning all over them. Transfer them to the slow cooker. Then pour the chicken stock (or beef broth) over everything.
-Cover your slow cooker with the lid.
-You can either cook on low heat for 9 hours or high heat for 6 hours.

-Now to make the gravy!!! Using a turkey baster, retrieve most of the cooking juices from your slow cooker. Transfer the juices to a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat on the stovetop.
-whisk together the corn starch with a little bit of water. Blend this mixture into the juices that you have simmering in the pan (blend while whisking).
-Bring back to a simmer until thickened.
-Transfer the roast & vegetables into a large platter and ladle the gravy over.
-Serve immediately and enjoy!! :)
