Crockpot Pot Roast for Dinner Tonight

This is one of my favorite crock pot recipes because the meat comes out so tender. The best part is you set the crock pot in the morning and a delicious meal is waiting for you when you come home. It has been horrible out weather wise and I find myself looking for comfort foods. This will surely fill my belly!

Crock Pot Pot Roast

1 frozen bag of onion soup (see recipe)
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. (Today I am leaving the soup frozen) 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.  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. Note: I am also using a Reynolds' crock pot liner today for easy clean up.
