Crock-Pots and Pot Roast

Have you seen this guy?

Now, I'm gonna assume almost everyone has a crock pot/slow cooker hiding somewhere in their house. He might be MIA at the moment but I know you got one hiding deep in the pantry or way back in cabinet next to food processors and blenders. Or maybe right on you kitchen counter if you use it a lot. I happen to have three, all different sizes of course. Well with this cold weather here (40 degrees, I know you Midwesterners & Northerners are laughing at me) I love using the slow cooker for stews and soups! So this morning before I left for work I put together a quick meal that will be ready for me to enjoy when I get home from work...

This is my mom's recipe for Slow Cooker Pot Roast

4-5lb beef pot roast
1 can of beer (she uses Michelob, i use Budweiser, it really doesn't matter)
1 pkg dry onion soup mix
1 lb red potatoes (halved)
10-15 baby carrots

Place half the veggies on the bottom, sprinkle some of the onion soup mix on top, then add the meat and sprinkle the rest of the onion soup mix on the meat. Top with the remaining veggies and pour the beer over all of it. Make sure to turn the crock pot on low and cook for 8-10 hours until meat is falling apart. ENJOY :)

    No, really I don't have it, in Italy is not so common.
    But it seems practical, thanks for the advice.
