Yummy Pot Roast

BRRRRR!!!! It’s cold outside, isn’t it? I don’t know where all of you are but here in Pittsburgh, Pa, we are in the negatives when you factor in wind chill. It’s good just to stay inside. 🙂

On the cold winter days and nights, I love making something that sticks to your ribs. Good old comfort food. There is something about a good hearty meal on a cold day that just makes sense. You will love this one because it’s quick and simple to prepare and it’s done in the crock pot so easy on the cleanup as well.

Here we go…


3 – 4 lbs chuck roast

15 ounces of beef broth

1/2 cup of Tastefully Simple’s Mushroom and Merlot sauce

1 packet of Tastefully Simple’s Roasted Garlic and herb mix

That’s it! And you will have a great tasting sauce for your roast meat to get funky with. Lol.

I don’t have pics of the meat at the beginning of the process but rest assured meat was used. Lol.

Mix a 1/2 cup of the mushroom and merlot sauce, 15 ounces of beef broth , and 1 packet of the roasted garlic and herb mix.


Put your beef in a crock pot and pour this mixture over the top. Cook on low for 8 – 10 hours and you get this deliciousness…


And trust me when I say this, it is melt in your mouth roast beef. I used the sauce as a dipper for my beef. Outstanding!

Now you can take the sauce after the beef is done and make a gravy.

To do that, you will need to take 2 Tbs of butter and 2 Tbs of flour and cook for about 2 minutes. Then add the broth/juice from the crockpot. cook until it thickens. It should take just a few minutes. You can pour this over the top of the beef. SCRUMPTIOUS!

I hope you all enjoy this quick and easy recipe!
