How to Make Pot Roast - CrockPot
1Brown the meat and the vegetables, for the gravy to have more flavor, although it\'s not necessary.
2Place the meat into the crockpot, then the vegetables; sprinkle on the onion soup mix and pour water over the top.
3Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is tender.
4Once the meat is done, if you want to thicken the gravy, remove the meat and vegetables from the pot and place them on a serving platter.
5Mix together 2 tablespoons flour and 2-3 tablespoons water to make a paste; whisk the paste into the hot liquid until thickened.
6You may want to put the temperature on high when you make the gravy.
7Freeze the leftovers or make other dishes with it (burritos, noodle casseroles, enchiladas, etc).
