What's For Dinner: Red Wine Pot Roast

Monday, October 8, 2012

Since the weather is getting cooler and it's starting to feel a bit more like fall (finally!), I decided to make a yummy slow cooker Pot Roast for dinner. This is great for a busy day cause you can prep the veggies the night before and then just throw everything in the slow cooker in the morning, let it cook all day and POOF!, it's ready to eat. Plus it made the whole house smell delicious!

1. Celery
2. Carrots
3. 2-2 1/2 lbs Beef Round Eye Round Roast
4. Slow Cooker "Savory Pot Roast" Seasoning packet
5. Baby Red Potatoes
6. Red wine (can use water in place of wine), 1 Cup

Step 1
Chop celery, carrots and potatoes. Measure out about 5 cups worth.

Step 2
Place roast into slow cooker. Add the 5 cups chopped veggies.

Step 3
There are a few options for this step. The seasoning packet calls for 1 cup water, but I went with twist and added 1 cup red wine in place of the water. Both options are delicious!. I found that the red wine just gave it some extra flavor, but it's up to which way you want to make it!
Add contents of seasoning packet to red wine and mix well.
Pour seasoning and wine mixture over meat and veggies in slow cooker.
Cover slow cooker.
Cook for 8 hours on low OR 4 hours on high (I cooked mine for 8 hrs on low)

Finished Plate!
Bake some biscuits for an extra yummy addition.

I think my fiance enjoyed his dinner! :)
