SEASONED CROCKPOT POT ROAST
From My Kitchen

3~4lb boneless roast {chuck works really well}
Zesty Italian Dressing
3~4 carrots chopped into 2~3” pieces
3~4 potatoes ¼’d
1 onion ¼’d
4~5 cloves of garlic chopped
salt/fresh ground pepper to taste
2 cups beef broth
2 bay leaves

Wash n pat roast dry. With meat fork poke holes all over it all sides. Pour dressing all over it n rub in a bit makin sure the whole roast is good n soaked. Place roast in crockpot.

Add carrots around edges so they go to the bottom of the crockpot.
Add potatoes.
Add Onion
Scatter garlic over everything
Salt n pepper to likin
Pour broth over everything

Drop in 2 bay leaves on top of roast. Cover n cook for 6 hours on high (some roast recp’s suggest either go 10 hours on low or 6 on high ~ I generally opt for the 6 because it takes me a bit to kick it into gear in the mornins! LOL!!
