I’m all about easy meals in our family. I am a “faithful” menu planner, most weeks. If I don’t write it down on our menu board, I at least have thought about our meals a day or two ahead of time. One thing our family REALLY likes is a Beef Chuck Roast in the crockpot with potatoes, onions, and carrots. My kids gobble it up! Even the onions….yea, my 4 year old likes the onions! When I’m trying to decide what to cook during the week, my menu often has crock pot meals in it. They’re easy, tasty, and once I get the meal started I don’t have to think about it anymore. If you’re trying to decide what to cook for dinner tonight, I think this Homestyle New England Pot Roast should be at the top of your list! I was all over it, because it involved the crockpot. Hello easy!
Homestyle New England Pot Roast
2-3 pound beef chuck roast
4 White potatoes
1 small bag of mini carrots
1. Add the beef chuck roast to the crockpot.
2. Pour the Kraft Recipe Makers New England Pot Roast Simmering Sauce over the roast.
3. Fill the empty Simmering Sauce bottle with water, and add it to the crockpot. This will get out the rest of the seasonings, and add a little extra moisture to the roast.
4. Quarter the onions and potatoes. Add them on top of the roast.
5. Add the bag of carrots. Cover, and cook on low for 8 hours.
6. Fifteen minutes before serving, stir in the Finishing Sauce.
Oh my yum! The Finishing Sauce added a nice “gravy” texture to the meat and vegetables. It was SO good! I wish I had made mashed potatoes to serve with the meat and gravy. I’ll remember that for next time. Ready made meals are so nice to have on hand for those nights when I don’t know what to make, or for in between grocery trips. We always have meat in our house-we purchase half of a steer from a local farmer once a year. So, when I need an easy dinner, I often turn to roasts, tacos with the ground beef, sloppy joes, or soups. Putting a roast in the crock pot isn’t just for Sundays after church anymore. Now, it’s become a weeknight dinner for our family.
Do you often use meal helpers in your dinners? Which are your favorite? I think it’s crock pot season now…..how about you?
