Cooking is something I really enjoy and lately, I’ve come to enjoy blogging about it! This week I’m linking up with some blogging friends for Crock Pot Thursday! Each week, Trista from Anderson’s Angels and Stacey from Staying Me share crock pot recipes. I made a roast in the crock pot over the weekend and it was YUM-O!! If you follow me on Instgram you got a sneak peak of the final product!
Onions (we use red onion)
Onion Soup Mix
Optional – you can also add mushrooms and potatoes
I actually bought a four pound roast and since it’s just my our little family I had them cut it in half for two meals. The roast in the crock pot photos below is about two pounds. Once I put the roast in the crock pot, I cover it in with a package of onion soup mix. I then fill the crock pot with water until it just covers the roast.
I cooked this on low heat for about seven hours. I then added in some carrots and onions (we also add mushrooms and potatoes sometimes) and cooked for another forty-five minutes. Easy peasy!
I didn’t eat any of the onions on my plate and I forgot to get a picture of my husband’s plate. I also made homemade mashed potatoes and green bean casserole! Yum! On days that I work outside of the home crock pot recipes are a life saver! It’s a quick and easy dinner but still homemade, hearty and delicious!
Be sure to stop by and see Stacey at Staying Me and Trista at Anderson’s Angels to see what they’ve cooked up for us this week!
