About This Blog

I enjoy new recipes...especially those that are easy. I always look for two things in the ingredients - a short(er) list and ones that I normally have on hand anyway. So if you are looking for something new to serve...look here!

I can't promise that the recipes will all be easy or healthy, but I do promise to try to add a new one every now and then that I have already tried myself.

Crock Pot Roast

1 fairly lean pot roast (I go to Kroger and buy whatever meat has the Crock-pot/Pot Roast sticker on it!)
1 pack Lipton’s onion soup mix (these come in a box near the canned soup)
1 onion, thinly sliced (Or I use 1/3 - 1/2 bag frozen pearl onions - yummy)
Carrots (I just buy a 1 lb. bag of the mini carrots at Kroger)
Potatoes (either 2-3 Idaho cut into 4 pieces or a bunch of red whole)

Place the carrots and potatoes and pearl onions in the bottom, so they will absorb the juices. If using a whole onion, place half the onion in the bottom of the crock pot. Rub the (raw) roast with the soup mix (I don't brown it on the stove). Place roast in crock pot, and top with remaining onion. Cover and cook on low heat for at least 8-10 hours. If it's going to cook for 10-12 hours...add a bit of water in the morning - 1/2 cup or so. Otherwise, it will make enough of its own juices.

Then I just follow the directions on the side of the Bisquick box (I buy the Heart Smart version) for the dumplings. They are not your typical "wet" dumplings...but I still love them.

  1. Yum! Sounds like my St Patty's Day meal that we crock pot minus the Lipton's! Oh, and I add cabbage of course!
