The Right Time for Roast!

Jump to recipe

I wasn’t kidding when I said it was slow cooker season! After enjoying a marvelous trip  home and seeing my loved ones, I made it back to the DC area and immediately knew my next dish had to be a crock pot recipe. Luckily past Denisha had the foresight to schedule an off day prior to her return from work giving her ample time to search for the perfect pot roast recipe and go to the grocery store. There’s really no better way to get back into the swing of things after a vacation than making yourself a hearty home-cooked meal.

I’m a sucker for the savory flavors of a Slow Cooker Pot Roast and stock veggies. Sitting in my apartment, catching up on Netflix and reading some of my newly purchased books was enhanced by the wonderful smells of my roast cooking away in the crock pot. Best of all, my roast was around 3 pounds and could serve 6 to 8 people…leftover city! I’ve been set all week with this savory roast.

Truth moment, I may have overcooked my roast just a tad. I wanted to eat around the time my favorite show, This Is Us, was on television. I decided to cook the meat on high for about 4 hours. When I checked the roast some of the potatoes were not as soft as I liked so I gave the roast another hour to cook. That was a mistake. When I tried it, the meat was a little tough but the flavors were spot on. Don’t think a little tough roast was going to stop me from taking in some more for lunch! It cost a pretty penny! To my surprise, the next day the roast didn’t seem all that tough. Perhaps I was fooling myself, but perhaps I just ate a tough part of the roast the night before. I’m definitely going to be more cautious next time when adding more time but the roast tastes delicious and I encourage you all to give it a try on a cozy cold day!
