pot roast... 10 hours

the goods:

1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 bag baby carrots (1 pound)
2 russet potatoes, cut into 8 wedges and halved lengthwise
1 medium onion, cut into 8 wedges
1 beef chuck roast, trimmed of excess fat
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

In a slow cooker, stir together cornstarch and 2 tablespoon cold water until smooth. Add carrots, onions and potatoes; season with salt and pepper, and toss.

Sprinkle roast with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; place on top of vegetables, and drizzle with Worcestershire sauce. Cover; cook on low 10 hours (or on high, 6 hours).

Transfer roast to a cutting board; slice (it may shred in the process).

Using a slotted spoon, transfer vegetables to a serving dish.

Pour pan juices through a fine-mesh sieve.

Serve roast and vegetables drizzled with pan juices. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.

Ha! TEN hours! I'm not organized enough to think of food until Brett is about to leave work!

I was wondering when you were going to add the Texan favorite - Brisket

Did you know you can buy crock pot liners? That way you don't have to scrub the pot afterwards, just pull out the bag.
