This month the Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten-Free carnival is being hosted by Shirley at gluten-free easily. Her theme is “dishes so simple, no recipe required.” The slow cooker is one of those appliances that makes no-recipe dishes a cinch. You can now view Shirley’s round up. You’re sure to be inspired!
This isn’t the type of meal that I prepare very often in the summer, but by mid summer I’m often ready for it as a change from summer fare. Of course, in cooler weather, it’s the kind of hot meal just about everyone will enjoy.
So, here’s my non recipe:
Put sliced onions and carrots and cut potatoes in the bottom of your slow cooker like this:
On the stove, brown a chuck roast in a hot oiled skillet. Cheaper cuts of meat such as chuck roasts do well in the slow cooker. The long cooking time makes them tender.
Place the browned roast on top of the vegetables.
Pour about 1 cup of liquid over top of everything. You can use water, broth, wine, or a combination of all three.
Add some chopped garlic, pepper, and rosemary or whatever herbs you prefer to the top of the beef.
Cover the slow cooker and cook on low 6 – 8 hours or high 3 – 4 hours.
Remove beef and potatoes to a serving dish.
