Ok so the last few wks threw out all the sickness spreading threw our house.. I wasnt up to parr persay with the whole cooking thing... So the crockpot was my friend! Oh how i LOVE my new crockpot! I got it at the christmas sales real cheap and i have only used it a couple of times and from what i can tell it doesnt MATTER how or how long i let it cook the meal NEVER dries out!
So i ransacked the freezer and found a lovely chuck roast...I layed it out and let it defrost the night b4. So i heated up my old heavy skillet nice and HOT! Took the roast and rubbed it with olive oil then sprinkled it with garlic powder, then i seered it nicely on all sides and around the edges making sure it was well sealed! Then i placed it in the crockpot. At this point the pan had some crusty stuff in it so i added about hlf a cup of water to the hot skillet along with this i added a few tablespoonfuls of worcestershire sauce, a teaspoon of rosemary a couple of shakes of good ole onion powder and a lil more garlic to the watered down mixture in the skillet! I heated it up till it was boiling turned off the pan and poured it over the roast in the crockpot! Lid on and i set it for 8hours and left it alone for a few hours....
Next time i checked on the lovely smelling crockpot i added about 4 handfuls of fresh mushrooms i sliced up thinly and about 2 tablespoonfuls of homemade gravy mix!
I sliced up a few spuds(potatoes) red skin with their skins still on ofcourse :) and let it simmer away for the reminder time. Before the boys got home from work i added some frozen blanched carrots from the freezer!
Sliced up some home made bread toasted it and served a heaping pile of this scrummy yummy meat!
Boys were very impressed and LOVED it alot!
After eatting it for a few days i turned it into Beef and Noodles :) added some corn and served broccoli with it!
