One of the staples in my house using this great little device has been the pot roast. Quick, easy, with lots of flavor, what more can you ask for.
Heres what you do:
1. Put the roast in the crock pot
2. Add carrots
3. Add onions
4. Add chopped celery
5. Add Salt and pepper, or seasoning of choice,
5. Add a light amount of water at bottom of crock pot, maybe about a cup.
5. Depending on how quick you want to eat, turn in on and wait. Its a good idea to flip your meat when its half way cooked if you can. After a few hours when the meat is shred-able, its time to eat.
Simple as that. Everything cooks together and the juices of the meat mix with the veggies to great a real nice savory flavor. Its just like Mom made. and depending on the spices you add you might be able to change up the taste slightly.
Most of the carbs it this meal will be coming from the veggies, the carrots specifically. Carrots tend to get more carbs in them when they are cooked due to the sugars in them activating. So have a few, but don't over do it.
Note: Some people will add potato chucks in with the other vegetables. If you have guest that's not a bad idea and will bring some nice variety. But remember, those potatoes are little carb mines in your meal that you will need to avoid.
