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:) I had as many blazers as I did crock-pots, can’t have just one!
Cream of Whatever Soup
Every time the kids 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. I never used a recipe when making crock-pot meals nor did I ever write down any of my “made up on the fly” meals. They always had three components; cream of whatever soup, dry onion soup mix and meat. To this day I can’t make a casserole without a can of cream of whatever soup.
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 walked out the door. When I got home from picking the kids up from school after work, supper was ready. All I had to do was dish up supper, sit down at the table and hear all about their day.
