How To Make yummy pot roast

  • 1
    Salt and pepper the meat, then dredge the meat in flour. Brown the meat in olive oil to seal in the flavor. The flour also helps to make a gravy out of the juices.
  • 2
    Place the meat in a crock pot that is set on high.
  • 3
    Add all ingredients except the carrots and mushrooms and and bring to a simmer, reduce the heat to low and cook for 4-5 hours. In the last hour add the mushrooms and carrots.

    I like to serve it with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.
