Hope's Pot Roast Again

This hit the spot for everyone in my family tonight!  Everyone cleaned their plates and had second helpings of something or another!  I actually had two helpings of meat and I can't say that a lot lately!  I've pretty much been a vegetarian since beginning this pregnancy!  My in-laws were here when I made this last and they liked it just as much as the first time.  Ella loved the carrots and meat especially!  She helped assemble this meal today and was so proud of how it came out!  It was a total family team effort!

I would like to say that the Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners worked REALLY well!  To quote my husband; "HOLY CRAP!!!!  These things are AWESOME!" (as he took the disposable liner out of his nice and clean Crock Pot liner!)  LOL  I laughed really hard!  So, we highly recommend them here at our house!  He found them right by the tin foil and baggies!  There are only 4 in a box, so save yourself a trip and buy 2 boxes! ;)

So, here's a reposting of the recipe for you!

Hope's Pot Roast

1   3-4 lb.  Chuck Roast
4-5 Potatoes, peeled, rinsed and quartered
3/4 a bag of baby carrots (or just use as many carrots as your family likes!)
1-2 onions, peeled and quartered
1 head cabbage, chopped into wedges (be sure not to use the core....too bitter)
1 pkg. Onion Soup Mix
1 1/2 cups water or 1 cup water and 1/2 cup red wine! Mmmmmmmm

Place Roast in bottom of Slow Cooker insert and sprinkle with half the Onion Soup package.
Place all vegetables on top of the roast and sprinkle with remaining Onion Soup mix then add the water.  

Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or on HIGH for 4-6 hours.  Enjoy!

  2. IS red wine for cooking the same as the red wine people drink?

  3. Yes it is :) You always want to cook with wine you'd be willing to drink :)
