V8 Pot Roast

"Here is another recipe from V8, I haven't tried this one yet, but I am going to try to adapt it for the slow-cooker. My Hubby works a lot of long and unpredictable hours, so the slow-cooker is my blessing in disguise. I will let you know how it works out - But for those that don't want to use the slow cooker - here is the recipe -"

    I actually got this off of V8's website too but I was trying to find out if anyone had already tried it. Well anyway I made this tonight. I did use about 6lbs of chuck roast which then required me to use about another cup and 1/2 of the V8 (low sodium). I knew going into this that the "broth" would probably have a lot of tomato flavor. The flavor of the V8 really does shine in this but for my family it just is too much of a tomato flavor. So at the end instead of thickening it with flour I thickened it with brown gravy mix (only about 2 to 3 tbs. It added a beefier flavor to it and still thickened it up. The tomato flavor was still present it was just more complementing. It was great for us after my change. It would be super easy to do in a crock pot and I think I'll try it that way next time. You would just have to brown the meat on the stove put it in the crock pot and then about an hour or so before serving add the veggies.
