DIRECTIONS

  • Place roast in a large crock pot.
  • Squirt or spread a thin layer of mustard over the roast.
  • Sprinkle onion soup mix on top.
  • Cook 8 hours on low (8 hours on high if roast is frozen).
  • OPTIONAL GRAVY: Strain the fat off the liquid and discard fat.
  • Place reserved liquid in a sauce pan and bring to a slight boil.
  • Add cornstarch to the water and make a paste.
  • Add paste to the reserved liquid and whisk until thickened.
  • NOTE: Do not add water to this - it will effectively "steam" the roast and make it tougher. Believe it or not, this will make its own liquid.
