I am sure many of you are wondering what happened to me. Well it was a long six months that included 2 moves across state lines. We were hoping for things to go a bit smoother but are very thankful for how things turned out. My oldest started kindergarten and after a month off we are back to a school schedule and routine. I am getting used to a new city and trying to make some friends as well as find some things to fill my time with.
One of the things that I have been up to is I am now an independent consultant for Thirty-One. I feel in love with their products and now I get to bring that love to other people. Check out my website and if you are interested in hosting either an online party or a party at your house let me know.
So while all of our stuff was in boxes and we were living out of suitcases for 5 months it was hard to cook. However I did get a chance to try out some new recipes and have found a few that my family loves.
One of which is this Pot Roast recipe. It was so good that my husband asked for me to make it again and I did just that a few nights ago. The best part about it is you cook it in your crock pot which makes it super simple to make. I actually found this recipe over at When the Dinner Bell Rings and made a few changes to it. I have tried to make pot roast in the past and never have a found a recipe that I was successful at until this recipe. Defiantly will be a house favorite of ours for years to come.
Crock Pot Beef Pot Roast
~ Small to Medium size rump roast
~ 1 envelope onion soup mix
~ 1 envelope brown gravy mix
~ 1 individual size serving apple sauce
~ 2 cups beef broth
~ salt and pepper, to taste
~ 1 small bag of carrots
~ 2 medium to large size potatoes, cut up
~ 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
~ 4 Tbsp. butter
~ 4 Tbsp. flour
1. Season roast with salt and pepper. Then sear the roast in the frying pan with a small amount of oil. Sear it well on all sides.
2. Put roast and then vegetables in crock pot. Don’t forget your crockpot liner for easier clean up!
3. Mix envelope mixes with beef broth and apple sauce, then pour over all.
4. Set crock pot on low and let it cook for at least 8-10 hours.
5. Once the meat is done cooking drain out 4 cups of the liquid in the crock pot.
6. In a medium pot melt butter over medium high heat. Once the butter is melted whisk in the flour cooking for a few minutes. Once the flour is mixed into the butter whisk in the liquid you removed from the crockpot. Keep mixing until the liquid has thickened up to form your gravy, it will take a few minutes of stirring.
7. Remove your meat a vegetables from the crockpot and serve with the gravy.
