Old Fashioned Pot Roast instructions
- *** sprinkle roast liberally with pepper, and garlic powder. and lightly with season salt. I rub the seasoning into the meat by hand… the brown gravy and onion soup mix are high in sodium..
- dredge roast through flour. fry in oil until both sides are brown. doesn't have to cook just brown. this step is important to help to form gravy or thick juice..
- coursely cut up potatoes. cut celery into 2" pieces..
- put all the veggies in a bowl with 1/2 the onion. lightly salt add pepper. hand mix..
- put a slow cooker liner in your crockpot..
- ROAST CAN BE PUT IN A BAKING BAG OR THE PRESSURE COOKER. If pressure cooker is used. cook on Med for 45 Minutes. if you use a baking bag cook for about 1 1/2 hrs at 350°. if you use a crockpot cook 8-10 hrs on low or 6 hrs on high..
- the instructions are given for a crockpot. put veggies in the crockpot and put roast on top.. it will keep veggies moist. put celery and onions on top of roast..
- put onion mix and gravy mix in bowl with water or broth…mix well until dissolved pour over roast and cook for designated time as posted in #6….
- **** after roast is eaten I save the leftovers juice to boil egg noodles in. the broth can be strained and frozen for future use. I'll put that recipe on my profile..
- SOMEONE ADDED IN THE REVIEW IT TAKES 8 HRS TO BAKE… EVIDENTLY THIS PERSON HAS NOT COOKED THIS. … this roast can be cooked in a roaster that has a lid … or in an aluminum roaster covered tightly with aluminium foil… for 1 1/2 – 2 hrs…..
- **** several people mentioned the gravy was thinner than they like…. when u get ready to cook the roast add 3 Tbsp of flour to a 1/2 coffee cup full of COLD water … put this in the bottom… the oils and broth from the meat will season this… in mine I mix the onion soup mix… gravy mix… and flour from frying the roast……
