I have 2

Pot Roast w/ Gravy

Pot Roast or preferred cut of beef
1 package dry onion soup
1 can cream of mushroom
your choice of veggies (I use baby carrots and red potatos quartered)

mix onion soup mix and cream of mushroom together. Add meat, soups and veggies. Cook on high 4-6 hours. You may want to wait till halfway to add veggies. My family likes them extra soft so I add them right away.

Also if you want more gravy add a bit of water.


Chili (not spicy)

Not my favorite but DH LOVED this! It reminds me of Wendy's chili. A bit on the tomato y side.

1 pnd. ground beef (can use lean or turkey)
2 cloves of garlic chopped fine
2 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
15 oz can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 onion chopped, (i use half)
4 oz can diced chilies, undrained
2 Tbsp. tomato paste

Brown beef and garlic over med. heat. Drain, add chili powder and cumin and stir to combine. In slow cooker mix together tomatoes, beans, onion, chilies and tomato paste. Add beef, mix well. Cook on high 4-5 hours.

Melt-in-your-mouth Mexican Meat dish

4lb. chuck roast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons oil
1 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/4 cups diced green chili peppers
3/4 cup hot pepper sauce
water

Season roast with salt and pepper. Sear on all sides in oil in skillet. Place in slow cooker.

Mix together remaining ingredients, except water, and spoon over meat. Pour in water down along the side of the cooker (so as not to wash off topping) until roast is one-third covered.

Thicken sauce with flour if you like.

Meat turns out perfect for use in tacos, burritos, etc.

A word of advice on this one...

Do not spoon this over your dog's food at night if you have to work the next day. Hoo boy.

I make this all the time, it's awesome - sometimes I add a little rosemary and crushed garlic, too. Tastes almost like that yummy italian beef you get in Chicago!!!!

Make the least of all that goes, and the most of all that comes....

Put the pot roast in the crock pot (can put onions, carrots, potatos or whatever you wish in first) and then dump the contents of the envelopes in the crockpot. Fill about 1/2 way with water. Sometimes I put a bay leaf in there too. Also, if I have some garlic cloves, I'll make slits in the meat and place a small piece of a clove in each slit. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Makes the house smell great and tastes wonderful!

Ok, I read where some of you tried this so I decided to try it too. Had it for dinner last night. DS was late getting home so we were all watching him as he sat down to eat. He put some in his mouth and sat there chewing for a minute and then he looked at me and said, Mom, I don't mean to sound rude or anything but YOU made this?? He knows I am not a great cook and only make a couple of different dishes he considers excellent so he was pretty much in shock that I could make something so good. The whole family loved it and we will sure have it again and again. Thanks for the recipe!
