When I was a child, my family used to eat this at least once a week due to the fact that it is inexpensive and a little goes a long way. We also added fresh herbs or sometimes whole kernel corn. Its even better the next day and it freezes well.
I found this on the all recipes site. This is a very easy recipe for a delicious pot roast. It makes its own gravy. It's designed especially for the working person who does not have time to cook all day, but it tastes like you did. You'll want the cut to be between 5 and 6 pounds.
This is a magic meal, the end product looks nothing like the starting ingredients. Trust me, DO NOT add water to this. The result will be tender melt in your mouth pork in a golden gravy, so tender that you will not need a fork! It's beyond simple to put together but yet nice enough to serve for company. I serve with mashed potatoes.
You can make easily increase the servings by repeating the layers in the crock, you just may need to increase the cooking time. Same goes for a thicker chop.
I think this came from an old TOH or QC. Even with minimal ingredients and minimal prep time this was a very good crock pot meal. Chicken came out very moist and tender. Easy to toss together in the morning and come home to a complete meal. We just added bread and butter and were set.
I now have my crock-pot 6 months. Because I don't need it as a time saver I have not used as much as I thought I would. But, it is great to make good chicken stock and I use it for that purpose a lot. I let the crock-pot do this during the night. My crock-pot is 3 liter/quart so a small one, adjust the ingredients to the size pot you are using and use your own judgement. I find it handy to freeze some of the stock in ice-cube bags for sauces.
If you do not have all the ingredients on the list...it does not matter, you also do not have to follow the amounts exactly, be creative and add other veg or more of the same, or what you have in the fridge and think is suitable for making this recipe, just let it cook slowly to get a great rich stock. Have fun with this and enjoy the result!
My husband insisted that I post this one. I make this when we go to my brother's cabin in the late fall. We sit outside and eat beans 'n wieners by a blazing fire. Reminds my husband of his scouting days. The kids like it too.
