We use our crockpot ALL the time. In fact, we have more than one of them. Often, we will use them at the same time. The other day, I had a roast I wanted to make, so I literally just took what I had out of the pantry to throw this together.
Clean Out The Pantry Roast:
1 pot roast-2-3 lbs. 1 pkg. Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix 2 small cans tomato juice 1 large carton beef broth 1 bag crinkle cut carrots-(Yes, I realize they were not in the pantry.)
Salt and pepper the roast. Dust with a little flower. Brown in the skillet with a pat of butter. Transfer the browned roast to the crockpot. Turn on low and add the beef broth, carrots, tomato juice, and soup mix. Cook for 8 hours.
