Pot Roast .... Slow Cookery/CrockPot

It's time for recipes again..this time with the wonders of slow cookery..I've put this on my and my two friends little cooking site(sueskitchen), but I thought to add it here also. This is really quite good..hurry over to Debbie's to see who else is cookin'.. DiningwithDebbie.

2 medium carrots, thinly sliced..about 1 cup
1 medium turnip,coarsly chopped..about 1/2 cup
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup sliced celery
One   3 pound boneless beef pot roast
1 clove garlic,halved
2 Tablespoons snipped parsley
1/4 cup all purpose flour

Place first five ingredients in slow cooker crock. Trim excess fat from meat..cut meat into 6 portions. Rub meat with cut surface of garlic, season meat with salt and pepper. Place the meat on top of the vegetables in the crock. Add 1/4 cup water; sprinkle with parsley.
Cover and cook on low heat setting for 8 to 10 hours.
For Grave:
 Remove the meat and vegetables...cover them to keep warm. Measure meat juices and add water if need be to make 1 1/2 cups. Slowly blend 1/2 cup cold water into flour. Turn into medium saucepan along with meat juices. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook 1 minute more.
 makes 6 individual servings

*.... I have never used turnip..I always use potato..that's what we like, but it gives you some idea of how to do. This is from one of my cookbooks..the slow cooking section..


  1. A wonderfully easy meal for a cold winter day. Thanks, CC!


  2. Hello Ms. CC,

    This sounds good. It's been years since I had anything cooked in a slow cooker, probably because I don't own one. Haha!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello. Sending fairy magic for a positively perfect day.

    Cheers! =D

  10. Hello, dear CC,
    I just stopped over to tell you that there is a little "giveaway-lottery" on my blog.
    Maybe you've got the time and the good mind to go in for my draw. Would make me happy :o)
