Perfect Crock Pot Beef Roast
I have been making this recipe for Perfect Crock Pot Beef Roast or Beef Roast and Veggies for a very long time. When I was a single mom, working full-time,
this was one of my “go to” recipes. Back then, I was dubbed the “Queen of the Crock Pot” by my kids. My sister Joan came in a very close second but I had her beat in the blazer department:) Everytime the saw the Crock-pot sitting on the cupboard, they’d groan; “Ahh Mom, Not another crock-pot meal!” Now years later, many of those “crock-pot suppers” are their favorite meals.
Whatever Was On Hand
Most of my “crock-pot suppers” were made with ingredients I had on hand. Many times there was no rhyme nor reason to my madness. I always had plenty of cream of whatever soup and onion soup mix on hand which was usually the base of the recipe. A can of this and a can of that. I would toss everything into the crock pot, turn it on and went to work. When I got home, supper was ready, whether it turned out or not! (To this day I can’t make a casserole without at least one can of cream of whatever soup in it.) All I had to do was dish up supper and sit down at the table and hear all about their day.
Fall is Perfect
After a long hot summer filled with grilled meats and picnic foods, the cooler weather is always welcomed. It also signals that it’s time to dig out your crockpot, head to the nearest farm market or your favorite farm stand and pick up some fresh produce. The perfect combination for making crockpot meals!
