Easy Roast in a Crock Pot

This week was just one of those weeks where I didn't feel like going to the grocery store.
So I decided to clean out my freezer and refrigerator and to see what I could come up with.

I found a frozen round roast, potatoes, and carrots. BOOM. Roast in a crock pot!

I messaged my mom to get her recipe.
It's one of my favorite comfort foods and the perfect meal to come home to after months of traveling. 

Here's what you need:
Some kind of roast.(I used a round roast)
Canola Oil
Russet potatoes
Baby carrots
Lipton's Onion Soup Mix

1. Flour, salt, and pepper the rub on all sides. 

2. Heat two tablespoons of Canola oil in a skillet. Brown the roast on all sides.

3. Place the roast into the crock pot. Cover in water and add Lipton's Onion Soup mix.

Cook on high for 4-6 hours. 

4. A few hours before it's ready, add cubed Russet potatoes and baby carrots.

I serve my roast over rice and it is yummy!

This particular time, my roast didn't have a ton of seasoning.

Next time, I will add more spices to the flour, salt, and pepper mixture. I will also add two packets of Onion Soup mix instead one.

Bon appetit!
