DIRECTIONS

  • Chop onion and put in bottom of crock pot with water and turn pot on low.
  • Mix flour, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large ziploc freezer bag.
  • Put roast in bag and toss until outside of roast is completely covered with a light layer of flour mixture.
  • Heat oil in a pan large enough for roast (I usually use a wok).
  • Brown roast on all sides in the pan.
  • After browning, empty excess oil into crock and keep roast in pan.
  • Chop garlic into slices.
  • Make incisions in the roast and put garlic in the slices with fingers.
  • Add roast to crock pot.
  • Add mushrooms on sides and top of roast.
  • After 4 or 5 hours, skin and chop potatoes and add to crock pot.
  • Cook until potatoes are soft and roast is tender enough to pull apart with a fork (usually 1-2 more hours).
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
