Really Good Pot Roast for One

You can have pot roast if you live alone.  Just buy a smaller cut of meat. This is a great meal for a rainy day. 

  • 2-4 lb. rump roast
  • Bunch of carrots (or buy a package of cut up carrots, I like the chips)
  • 2 Potatoes, chopped1 yellow onion, sliced1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • Red wine (always Merlot for me) do NOT buy cooking wine.  Cook with the wine you drink.
  • 2 TB Molasses
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • ½ cup flour
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt & Pepper

Liberally rub salt pepper and garlic powder into roast.   

Cover the meat in flour.  Heat a little vegetable oil in a pan and sear the roast on both sides on high heat until its dark.  

Put in in the slow cooker with all the veggies.  Add about a cup of or more of wine and the molasses.  Cook on low all day. 

You can make gravy out of the juice but I like the juice just the way it is.

When you are tired of eating left over pot roast, Eat hash

Nuke a potato in microwave for 4 minutes. Chop it upChop an onion

Sauté the onion in olive oil for a few minutes.  Add the potato, left over veggies and chopped up meat from pot roast.   

Stir for a while, then pat it all down and cook on high until bottom is crisp, turn it over and cook until that side is crisp.
