Pot Roast is not a family favorite, (okay, I admit it, I don't like it ever since I got the stomach flu once on the same day I ate a large helping of Pot Roast... can't un-smell that) so I make it
I digress. So, even though it's not my favorite... it does make a delicious, tender, fall-off-your-fork roast that makes wonderful BBQ Shredded Beef sandwiches for leftovers.
Simple Beef Pot Roast
2-3 pound chuck roast (Or pork shoulder)
1 envelope of Lipton's Mushroom-Onion Soup Mix
1 cup water
Place roast in slow cooker
Dump soup mix on top
Pour water in bottom of slow cooker
Cook on high for 6-7 hours, Cook on low for 10-11 hours. (If making a pork roast, cook on low for 24 hours... makes shred-able meat for enchilada fillings, pulled pork sandwiches etc.)
Add additional water if cooking on high in the last 2-3 hours. Use drippings to make delicious mushroom-onion gravy.
Serve over Mashed potatoes, Rice or Couscous, with a side of veggies and fruit.
