Slow Cooker Roast Recipe
I'm always giving you a recipe for slow cookers but sometimes you might simply want to slow cook meat all day long for the tenderest piece of meat you can get.
Pour 2 cups of water into the slow cooker and season it with onion powder, garlic powder; whatever other seasonings you might like. In fact, try replacing 1 cup of water with 1 cup of tomato sauce for a delicious and different taste.
Brown a roast on 2 sides and place in the slow cooker. I like it to cook all day long on low. Then I make up mashed potatoes at suppertime, pull out the roast, pour the juice in a pan and make gravy and . . . . . I'm telling you. Talk about delicious!
The roast will fall apart and no knife is needed. I cooked it this way at my mother-in-laws house and when it was time to serve, she got out the carving knifes. I told her "Don't need em.". She didn't believe me until I pulled the roast out of the slow cooker and it was falling apart while I transfered it.
