Saturday Stirrings: Crock Pot Roast

Rumor has it that winter is here. But you wouldn’t know it here in Armpit, Florida, as I sit here listening to the hum of the air conditioner. But, I thought I’d pull out one of my favorite cold weather crock pot recipes.

Sort of like my own personal rain dance. Without the benefit on any notable rhythm.

Crock Pot Roast
(most original name I could think of)

(I know, my creativity amazes even me)

Pot Roast, trimmed of fat, 2-3 lbs.
1 Quart Tomato Juice
1 t. Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 t. Dry Mustard
1 T. Salt
1/2 T. Black Pepper

Mix all ingredients together and pour over pot roast in crock pot. Cook on slow 8- 12 hours, covered. The sauce can be thickened with cornstarch to serve with the meat. For each 2 cups of liquid, stir 1 T. cornstarch into 1/4 C. of cold water until dissolved and no lumps remain (should look like milk). Place sauce mixture into a saucepan large enough to contain it, then stir in the dissolved cornstarch mixture. Stir constantly over medium heat until mixture bubbles and thickens. Turn down the heat and simmer a minute or two. Serve with the meat. This makes a very tender pot roast!

The meat and marinade (in the precooked stage) freezes well in a freezer bag. Just allow at least 2 inches of air space at the top of the freezer container or bag to allow for expansion during freezing.

Bon appetite.

  • I love crockpot cooking

  • Um, this sounds WONDERFUL. I am putting it on the menu for next week!

  • Are you on the west armpit or the east armpit?

    The last two days I was able to open the house up here in O-town. Today was muggy and humid again, so I let the AC do the work.

    My toes feel a tad but, but only a tad, chilly. Dare to dream I’ll need socks some day soon.

  • Sounds yummy! I’m definitely trying that….I don’t know what it is about Worcestershire sauce that always makes things taste better. 🙂

  • Thanks. I love using my crockpot. There’s just something about starting dinner early in the day and having the hard part behind you. And, walking back in the door later in the day to the smell of something yummy cooking. It’s the best!

    Hugs!

  • I wish I could make a good pot roast. I really do. I’ve tried and tried and well, my pot roast making skills are like most of the kitchen skills I have desired to obtain…MIA.

    I would type more but my fingers are frozen as is my nose and my toes. Winter has set in here in Western Nebraska…even without the white flaky stuff falling from the sky.

  • This is just the best way to cook a roast. I love the way it makes the house smell and I love that it leaves the oven free for other things. Your recipe sounds delicious!

  • I’m definately trying this one!!! Going to get the ingrediants today!

  • Ok, so I stopped by this post this morning before church. We had Old Fashioned Sunday today and they were having a chili cookoff contest. After I read this I though tto myself, “I could use my crockpot to do chili” So I hopped up and literally just threw it together. We live close enough that I was able to drive home and pick it up for the contest. Tonight they revealed the winners. I came in Second Place for the Spiciest Chili and first place for the best name. ;O) I tend to forget about using my crock pot. Thanks DeeDee.
