    How do you cook vegetables with this dish

    This recipe (Beef Pot Roast (In Pot, Oven or Slow Cooker) Another One!) has directions for cooking vegetables in the crock pot along with the meat. You could follow the vegetable cooking method with the other recipe (To Die for Crock Pot Roast).

    Personally, I would either cook the vegetables separately before serving or add them to the crock pot for the last hour or two of cooking time. I'd be afraid if the vegetables were added to the crock pot at the beginning of the cooking time, they would be mush by the time the roast was done. icon_confused.gif

    Mine took way more than 2 hours. I only made this once because I didn't like it; but I added my veggies half way through, and they were done perfectly, in fact a little under done. But, I didn't dice mine, I rough chopped.

    Either way, it was ok; just not for me. Very fake tasting with all the pkg ingredients.

    But, it came out tender; and it didn't go to waste. For some, even 3 of my guests loved it. But, the veggies worked
    On a separate note, I have a similar recipe. Same cooking time. I add the onions to the bottom. Then regular carrots, not those baby, pre cut snack things, followed by parsnips, potatoes, cut in half (red potatoes); and finished with mushrooms. I DO NOT mix these. Cook and 1 hr before serving, mix to combine. Your veggies should be fine. I make my roast like this all the time (my recipe), but basic cooking times and it comes out fine. Layering and stacking is the key to get the vegetables to cook at the right time.

    Vegetables can actually take longer to cook than the meat. Hard vegetables, like potatoes, carrots, rutabaga, also onions, should be put in first, topped with the meat. If you are using peas or summer squash, those can go in about half an hour or so before the dish is finished.

    If you chop the vegetables into small dice, they will cook more quickly, but with a roast such as this, you normally want larger chunks of veggie. Check through some of the reviews, you will see that this is exactly what people did.

    Thanks to all who replied to my email request about the vegetables. I am known to be able to prepare food with a knife and fork and I'm great at making reservations! But, these recipes look too good not for me to give it a try.
