    Crafty Lady 13's Note:

    A tender pot roast cooked in the crock pot along with potatoes, carrots and celery. This roast gets its zesty flavor from a mixture of garlic, basil, oregano, parsley and vinegar all stirred together in tomato soup. I got this recipe from the Campbell's Slow Cooker cookbook.

      Remove the roast from the crock pot to a cutting board and let it stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Thinly slice the roast and put on a serving platter. Remove the vegetables with a slotted spoon and put on platter. Pour the juices from the crock pot into a gravy boat and serve with he roast and vegetables.

      Tip: For a thicker gravy, stir 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour in a small bowl. Remove roast and vegetables from crock pot and stir the flour mixture into the juice. Turn the heat to HIGH and cook for 10 minute or until the mixture boils and thickens.

      This was really lovely, the sauce really makes it. I wasn't able to do it in the crockpot due to power outage & time constraints so cooked in the oven instead. I love the fact that the vegies cook in the sauce and all you need is some bread on the side and your meal's done...can't wait to try it in the crockpot next time..Thanks for posting!

      *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #24* This was VERY easy and tasty -- desperately needed salt. Can't say much for "Zesty" -- but had a 3 lb piece of nice chuck and the veggies, which we enjoyed while watching the Championship Games ! Thanks, Crafty Lady, for posting.
