Slow-Cooking Sunday Roast

In my opinion, Sunday's are the best day to have a Slow Cooker Meal.
Throw the meat in with some seasoning and later that day you have dinner.
Easy Schmeasy. . .as my son would say!
Steam a few vegies cook some muffins and you have a meal fit for your family.
I don't cook roast all that often for a couple of reasons,
I don't really like to eat a lot of red meat, and it can be expensive.
But when I ask my Husband what he wants for Sunday dinner he almost always suggests a Roast.

Slow-Cooking Sunday Roast

-2 to 4 pd beef roast
-salt and pepper (to taste)
(I like getting a little bit bigger roasts for leftovers)
- 1/3 cup Shirley J Slow Cooker Seasoning for Beef
-2 cups of water

In a mixing bowl whisk together the Seasoning and water until combined.
Place Beef Roast(thawed) in a crockpot, slow cooker, or dutch oven.
Shake salt and pepper on top of roast.
Pour the Seasoning mixture on top of all.
Cover and cook on low for 5-10 hours.

The Seasoning mixture left in the pan with the roast usually is thick enough to use as the gravy. But if you like a thicker gravy, mix a little cornstarch and water then mix into the gravy.

Our menu included:
-Roast with gravy
-Steamed Fresh Cabbage
-Steamed garlic Carrots
-Boiled red potatoes
-Shirley J Blueberry Muffins

(The Slow Cooker Seasoning for beef comes in a 1.25 lb can and has 80 servings. The cost is $9.70)
