The Perfect Time for Meat and Potatoes! Pot Roast Two Ways.

A few weeks ago I purchased a 4.5lb pot roast and got some veggies to go with it. I divided it into three sections and first dish I made was crock pot pot roast with my home made French onion soup I also make in batches and freeze
Crock Pot Pot Roast

1 frozen bag of onion soup
1-2lbs pot roast
5 or 6 potatoes quartered
2 carrots cut in 2 inch pieces
2 stalks celery roughly chopped
2 TBSP flour
2 TBSP butter

The rest is a easy as pie. Defrost the frozen soup in a microwave safe bowl. Add to the bottom of the crock pot. Place veggies in bottom of the crock pot Season meat with salt and pepper and add to the pot. Top with the meat and cook on high 4 hours or 8 hours on low. Before serving brown 2 TBSP butter in a sauce pan. Add 2TBSP flour and brown for 1-2 minutes. Add broth from crock pot and stir til bubbly to make a gravy. Serve over the pot roast and potatoes.

Meal number two is also very easy. It's for Chunky Beef Crock pot Tacos.

Chunky Beef Crock pot Tacos
1-2 lbs pot roast meat
1 onion diced
2 potatoes chunked
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 can tomato sauce
1/4 c water
12 flour tortillas

Cut the beef into chunks. On the stove top heat a pan coated with some oil. Dip the chunks into some flour and brown on all sides. Add the browned meat into the crockpot with the taco seasoning, the onion, and water.Cook on high for 5 hours or low for 8. Serve with tortillas and rice.
