pot roast

i made my first pot roast! granted it was in the crock pot and probably the easiest thing i have ever cooked... but it was damn tasty.

onion garlic juice. mmmm. not.

pretty no?

nicely seared in the pre-cook

gravy. which was fast, simple, and surprisingly non-lumpy. but oh so oniony. and while i enjoy onion flavor..the texture of onions has made me full out gag on more than several occasions. even after 4 hours on high they were still ...oniony-textured. and the gravy was rife with them. but it was tasty with roasted zucchini and broccoli and my failed attempt at mashed parsnips. i have no idea how you roast parsnips without the sugar in them caramelizing and burning to a crisp. then when you blend them if there is any hint of burned, the resulting mash is a burnt sienna/seal grey. unappetizing to say the least.


  1. I love my Crockpot! I am posting healthy slow cooker recipes on my blog You might fine some that interest you.

  2. Liz, Steam the parsnips until soft and blend with motor boat or blender with butter, cheese and seasoning to your taste.
