    **Tinkerbell**'s Note:

    One of those busy day "What have I got in the pantry today?" recipes. I wasn't going to be home for most of the day and knew I'd be tired when I got home, so I created this easy to prep pot roast and put it in the crock pot. When I got home the house was filled with a delicious aroma and the meat was melt-in-your-mouth tender. It was a welcome sight after a long day. I hope you enjoy it too!

    Units: US | Metric

    • 907.18-1360.77 g boneless cross-rib roast
    • 3 small potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
    • 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 1-2 inch pieces (I used a 1/2 package of baby carrots)
    • 1 small onion, peeled and quartered
    • 2.46 ml celery salt
    • 1.23 ml oregano
    • 1.23 ml thyme
    • 2.46 ml sea salt
    • 0.59 ml pepper
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 9.85 ml beef base (or a 14oz can of beef broth)
    • 473.18 ml hot water (if using a can of beef broth, the water is not needed)

    For Optional Gravy

    • 59.16 ml of all-purpose flour stirred into 1/2 cup cold water


    1. 1
      Arrange potatoes, onions and carrots in bottom of crock pot.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, combine celery salt, oregano, thyme, sea salt & pepper.
    3. 3
      Massage the spices into the roast and place the roast atop the veggies.
    4. 4
      Toss in the bay leaf.
    5. 5
      Pour beef base and water mixture (or beef broth) over the roast and veggies.
    6. 6
      Put the lid on the crock pot and cook on LOW setting for approximately 6-8 hours or until roast and veggies are tender.
    7. 7
      Optional: For gravy you can stir in the flour and water mixture in the last 30 minutes of cooking time and turn the crock pot up to High setting.
    8. 8
      I prefer to remove the meat and veggies from the crock pot and pour the liquid into a saucepan. Bring to a slight boil and slowly pour in flour and water mixture while stirring constantly. Bring to a full boil and cook and stir until it thickens up to your liking. About 3-5 minutes total.

      I have been making pot roast like this for over 50 years. I also brown the meat, or rub a tlbs of browning sauce over the meat before putting in the pot. Can also be cooked in a low oven about 200-250 degrees in a heavy covered pot. This will shorten the cooking time down some, about 1 or 2 hours so check it every 30 minutes towards the end of cooking!

      Thank you for posting a flavorful crockpot recipe that does not have Onion Soup Mix OR canned Cream of Mushroom soup! <br/>Only thing I did different was to brown the roast before putting into the crockpot.

      Made this with unpeeled red potatoes,as well as the can of beef broth instead of the water & the bag of baby carrots (your tip) & we had ourselves a most delicious pot roast, a very nice change of pace from the holiday dinners we've been having this past month! Has some homemade chunky apple sauce left over from what wasn't used in a homemade cranberry sauce & with a green salad we had a very filling, wonderful dinner! Thanks for yet another great recipe, Tink! [Made & reviewed in the current Let's P-A-R-T-Y event]
