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.
