I made my first pot roast yesterday.
I was nervous… and I totally adapted a recipe…. but it was a hit and I will totally do it again!
8 red potatoes
1 small bag baby carrots
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 packet dry onion soup mix
2 Chuck Roasts… both around 1.5 pounds.
Garlic power, minced onions, salt, pepper.
Cut potatoes into fourths.
Line bottom of crock pot with potatoes.
Add meat layer.
Mix cream of mushroom soup and dry onion soup mix with spices, layer mixture over meat.
Add layer of carrots.
Spoon cream of celery soup on top.
On High for one hour
On Low for 7 hours
On High for last hour.
Notes: Next time I will add onions and celery.
I will also make some egg noodles to serve under it as a way of mopping up the gravy. I might even pull out the meat and slice it before serving… it was a little hard for my guests to pull out the “right” ammount of meat per serving.
All in al though, a valiant first attempt!
