This is a easy pot roast that I like to make when it starts getting cooler.

Directions

  1. Cut up the roast to fit into the slow cooker.
  2. Then sear both sides of each piece of meat in a skillet. About 30 seconds to 1 mintue each side.
  3. Cut up all the vegetables and mix them in a big bowl.
  4. Then layer the meat and vegetables in a slow cooker. Add the lemon juice and water.
  5. Finally turn the slow cooker on low and cook for 6 to 8 hours.

Reminded me of dinner time with my Mom when I was a little girl. Wonderful comfort food. I used carrots instead of bell pepper (hubby doesn't like them) and chicken broth instead of water. I ended up seasoning as it cooked with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic salt and a few more splashes of lemon juice. Hubby said it's a keeper.

The roast was very moist and flavorful, and the vegetables were very tender. I thought the addition of the lemon juice really added the extra boost of flavor that I have never had with other crock pot roasts. Thanks cheesygiraffe. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.
