"If you just listen, everyone has a song." ~ Courtney Martin

 

NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

Most of the leaves are gone and after such a warm fall it is starting to feel like winter is coming. Our grandkids were enjoying the beautiful weekend last Sunday as their dad was busy clearing out the garage, making room for their cars to fit in again for winter. We had a rain storm today, but no snow yet…

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

This is crock pot/pot roast season… I only have to look at recipes from other years at this time! This year's melt-in-your-mouth pot roast recipe follows.

FALL APART TENDER SLOW COOKER POT ROAST

  • 3-5 pound pot roast Pot roast 2015
  • 2 tablespoons steak seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • Olive oil
  • 1 package petite carrots
  • Optional 2 pounds potatoes and 2 stalks celery, cut into large chunks
  • 1 large onion, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Combine seasonings together in small bowl, set aside. Coat both sides of meat with olive oil and rub with seasoning mix.  Sear all sides of the meat in a large skillet and transfer roast to slow cooker.

Drizzle a little olive oil to coast vegetables and add to top of pot roast. Pour in the beef broth and cover with lid. Cook on low for 9 hours or high for 6 hours.

Using a turky baster, retrieve most of the cooking juices from the slow cooker. Transfer juices to a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Whisk together the cornstarch with a little water. Blend into the pan juices while whisking. Bring back to a simmer until thickened. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.

Transfer the roast and vegetables to a large platter. Ladle the gravy over or serve on the side and serve immediately.
