Karla's Beef Chuck Roast Dinner (in a crockpot)
I have done this same recipe in the 350° oven for 4 hrs. (turning meat over once through cooking) and add the vegetables the last 2 hrs. of baking time , its just as great that way too.
- 3+ lb
- beef chuck roast ( or your favorite roast)
- 1 pkg
- dry onion soup mix
- 2 c
- 1 1/2 tsp
- garlic powder
- 1 tsp
- sea salt
- 1/2 tsp
- ground pepper
- 2-4 medium
- whole onions
- 6-8 medium
- potatoes (or amount needed per person)
- 2 c
- baby carrots (or amount needed per person)
Note : After the dinner is done before serving you can make a gravy with the juice if desired.
You will need more or less depending on how much liquid you are thickening -- make a little more than you think you need, and add it to your sauce, stirring constantly.
Keep adding the cornstarch mixture until it's "almost but not quite" as thick as you want. It will thicken a little more while it cools.
