Ingredients

How to make it

  • Mix the flour, garlic and onion powders and pepper well and place in a large plastic bag big enough to hold the roast. Add the roast and coat well, pressing the flour into the meat through the sides of the bag.
  • Heat a large frying pan to medium high and add 2 generous tablespoons of bacon fat or grease, margarine, butter or olive oil. When pan hot, but not smoking, add the onion and cook for a few minutes. Spoon off onion and place in crockpot.
  • Next take the roast out of the plastic bag and save the rest of the flour mixture. Put the roast into the pan and brown well on all sides - don't bother with the edges if the roast is flat.
  • Place roast on top of onions in crockpot and set crockpot to low. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the flour mixture reserved from the bag over the roast.
  • Deglaze pan with vinegar and wine, sherry or water and pour on roast in crockpot. Add stock to pan and bring to boil and then pour that over the roast.
  • Lastly, open a package of dry vegetable soup and sprinkle over roast in crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 10 hours, turning the roast after 8 hours.
  • The liquid turns into a wonderful gravy and the meat is falling apart great.
  • Be sure you cook this on low and for 10 hours - or the meat may end up being tough.
  • We like to serve the gravy over mashed potatoes and the roast in chunks. Either peas or spinach goes well with it.

    I had a roast I needed to cook but not much to put with it. This recipe sounded Great and is in the crockpot now. I used water and chicken stock with the only dry soup mix on hand-onion. I also used 4 strips of bacon as suggested by Catmotherlove; smells great! I will let you know what my hubby thinks tomorrow. Sounds Perfect!
