Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
So this is the first time I've cooked a pot roast in the slow cooker. I usually do it in the oven. But this will be the only way I do it from now on!! Amazing. I read a lot of the reviews and took suggestions and added a few of my own. Here they are: 1- do not season the meat with salt. The seasonings have enough salt 2- instead of only 1/2 cup of water I used 3/4 of water and 1/4 of red wine. 3- I added baby carrots and small white potatoes cut in half 4- crushed up one clove of garlic and added it as well 5- 2 hours before it was done I added a handful of in chopped mushrooms 6- I took the roast out if the fridge and let it sit out at room temperature for at least a half hour, no more than an hour. Allows the meat to cook more evenly 7- finally I cooked the meat for 9 1/2 hours and the ends came out well done and the middle was a perfect medium rare 8- once done remove some jus, put in a pan and begin to warm. Meanwhile take 2 teaspoons of flour and about 4 teaspoons of water in a cup and whisk until you get a pancake like texture. Slowly add to the boiling jus constantly whisking. Creates a thick heavenly sauce Will do this every time as it was soooo good seems like a lot if extra steps but seriously made it incredible!!!
