|Our Ghoultide Centerpiece|
No Fear Pot Roast
Chuck roast, 2-3 lbs
2 cups sliced carrots
5-6 diced potatoes
1/2 cup green peas
1 cup a yellow onion roughly chopped
2 cans beef broth
Optional: red wine
Spray Pam or some other non-stick cooking spray into your empty crock pot, this will help with clean up later. Toss your veggies, except for the peas, into the bottom of the pot. Next add the roast and pour in your beef broth. Add enough liquid to just cover the roast. Put on the lid and turn the temperature setting to low. I cooked ours for about 9-10 hours. The last hour of cooking I added the peas and a good pour of red wine for flavoring. Serve with a hot and buttered slice of the dutch oven bread and you have a match made in heaven.
1. Season the roast before cooking it. Spread some salt and pepper (I added curry powder) onto a cooking sheet and rub the spices into the meat. I used kosher salt for this step.
2. Add some roasted garlic cloves to the mix. As well as a few bay leaves, a sprig or two of rosemary, and a good dash of cumin.
