WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

ITALIAN FLAVORED POT ROAST

1 (3 to 4 lb) rump or pot roast
3 potatoes
3 carrots
2 onions
1/2 cup water
1 can (8-oz) tomato sauce
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil

Place the potatoes, carrots, and onions into the slow cooker or crockpot.  Salt and pepper the roast; add to the cooker over the vegetables. 

In a small bowl combine the water, tomato sauce, oregano, and basil; pour the mixture over the meat and vegetables.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours or on high for 5 to 6 hours.
