Traditional Pot Roast

***This is one of my favorite comfort foods! Not only does it make the house smell down-right delicious, but it tastes amazing too! The best way to prepare this is with a slow makes the meat so tender that it just falls apart and melts in your mouth.

This is how my Mom always prepared this classic dish, so it's still the recipe that I use (with a few additions). This doesn't come from any cookbook...just from memory. Sometimes, those recipes are the best! ;)

Feel free to play around with the ingredients. You can add garlic, or even substitute some of the beef stock with red wine!

Oh, and this is also great the next day...once all the flavors have really come together. If you like pot roast, you may also like this ITALIAN POT ROAST that I posted a few months ago. It's also fantastic!***

One 3-4 lb. boneless chuck roast
1 cup water
Beef Stock
2-3 Tbsp. Amazing Taste Beef Seasoning (or your favorite seasoning will do!)
1 Onion, diced
1 package baby carrots
8 - 10 small, new potatoes or 2 large russet potatoes, cut into wedges
1 can (10-3/4 oz.) Cream of Mushroom soup
Garlic Salt, to taste

Place roast in slow cooker and add water. Layer the chopped onion, potatoes, baby carrots and Cream of Mushroom soup around roast. Sprinkle Amazing Taste seasoning over all ingredients. Add enough beef stock to cover all ingredients, and stir to combine...making sure that the roast remains on the bottom. Season with garlic salt.

Cook on high for approximately 5 - 7 hours, or until meat is very tender...stirring occasionally. Serve hot!
