Comfort Food: Pot Roast

This is one of the ultimate comfort foods – pot roast and vegetables with gravy.  This is reminisce of “Sunday Dinners” that our grandmothers & mothers made each week.  It is made easier & summer friendly by using the crock pot!

 

3 to 3.5 pound chuck roast

1 pound potatoes, in large chunks (or use whole small ones)

1 medium onion, quartered

3 ribs celery, each halved

1 pound carrots (chopped or use baby carrots)

salt

pepper

3 to 5 cloves garlic, crushed

3 bay leaves

1 medium to large Serrano chili, washed, ends cut off & thirds

water

 

 

In a crock pot, place veggies, Serrano chili in bottom.  Salt and pepper meat well on both sides & place on top of veggies.  Cover with water & add bay leaves.  Cook on high 1 hour; flip meat, stir veggies slightly & cook on high another 3 hours or until meat is cooked through.

 

 

Enjoy!
