Okay I found a recipe on the crock pot site.... and had a question about an ingredient.

what do you americans call tomato sauce? lol... in Australia tomato sauce is ketchup.


Hungry Man Pot Roast

1 to 1 1/2 pound roast
2 8 oz can of tomato sauce
1/2 can water
1 bag frozen mixed vegtables (my fave is california blend)
1 bag frozen baby pearl onions
2 or 3 red potatoes sliced (skin on)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon italian seasioning
1 teaspoon oregono
8 oz sour cream

Ligtly brown roast in a dutch oven or electric skillet. Season your meat with garlic powder, italin seasoning, and oregno. Slice potatoes and put in crock (I quarter mine) place frozen vegges and oinions in stir, pour both cans of tomatoesauce in and stir again, pur 1/2 can of water in and stir, now place meat in the middle andd dump sauce all over meat. Cook on High for at least 6 hours. Check to see if meat is fully cooked,stiring well add sour cream and continue cooking for 45 miniutes on low. I serve minte with Buttermilk biscuts to sop up all the sauce.It's really good but it's really rich. Enjoy

If you can't get hold of a can of tomato sauce, I believe that ketchup will work for you.

I think they're referring to the sauce that you would put on your pasta...what do you call it there?
