I love a roast cooked in the crock pot, the fact that it cooks slowly all day and it has a chance to sit and baste in it’s own juices – and the fact that I don’t have to worry about it all day – and the fact that dinner is basically done when we get home from work, all of which make crock pot just about anything very appealing!
This is something that I just put together a few years ago and the family always enjoys it too, so why not put one of these one every once in awhile. Roast is something that can be changed up pretty simply and it’s always just good food! What makes roast even better is roast gravy on top – now that’s what I’m talkin about! My family would agree, they always love the gravy!
I start with the crock pot and just use some cooking spray in it. Then the star of the show – a cross rib roast – along with the rest of the characters……Lipton Onion Soup mix, Worcestershire Sauce, Liquid Smoke , Beef Bouillon cubes and of course some water.
Place the roast in the crock pot and add the water, which should come up to just before the top of the roast. Then shake one package of onion soup mix on top.
Add Worcestershire Sauce, Liquid Smoke and Bouillon cubes. Turn the crock pot on low and let it do it’s magic all day. Dinner is pretty much done when you get home – it’s almost like a night off!
