Easy Pot Roast

Easy Pot Roast Recipe

1 – shoulder or chuck roast (size or type doesn’t matter)
1 pkg Onion Soup Mix
1-2 garlic cloves
1-2 cups water
Potatoes peeled and quartered (optional)
Carrots sliced (optional)
Onion quartered (optional)
1 pkg  brown gravy mix

Slice up the garlic cloves into slivers.  Poke holes sporadically throughout the roast.  Push the garlic cloves into the holes.  Place the roast in the crock pot.  Sprinkle dry onion soup mix over roast and the pour water over roast until it is half way up the roast.  Add any vegetables desired.  (I prefer mashed potato so I don’t cook veggies in crock pot)  Cook roast for 8 hours on low or 6 hours on high.   Take roast out of crock pot and let it cool some before slicing.  If you want an onion flavored gravy, then use the liquid in crock pot to make gravy as directed on mix.  If not make gravy according to directions on package.  If you want to make your own gravy with out a mix.  Take a half a cup of water – to a cup of water and mix it with flour until it makes a thick pancake like batter consistency.  Add that to the juices in the crock pot.  Let heat for 30 minutes until thickened.
