Crock Pots & Other Items

Crock pots have come a long way since our parents’ day with programmable settings and a variety of sizes and styles. I have this Crock Pot and love it. With a lot of mouths to feed I have a 7-quart one but make sure you find one that fits your family’s size and, of course, kitchen decor! I went with black because it’s easier to keep clean and it pretty much lives on my counter since I use it at least 1-2 times a week.

The only other item I think is necessary when making roasts in the crock pot is a gravy separator. You’re going to want to separate some of the fat from the gravy. Everything else – pots, pans, spoons, etc. you probably already have!

Crock Pot Roast Recipes

There are so many ways to do a beef roast in your crock pot! From simple to complicated (and I much prefer simple), here are a few of my families favorites!

You can use almost any type of roast in these recipes. I’ve used a sirloin roast, a chuck roast, or an arm roast.

Ingredients
  

  • 3 ½ – 4 pound chuck roast I've done this with a variety of roast cuts!
  • 1 packet au jus gravy mix
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning
  • 1 stick butter Salted or unsalted
  • 2-8 pepperoncini peppers Use more or less depending on your heat preference
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 Tablespoons flour

Instructions
 

  • Place the roast inside the crock pot
  • Sprinkle the dry gravy mix and ranch seasoning packing over the roast
  • Place stick of butter on top of roast
  • Add pepperoncini peppers on and around roast. (I like to add a little of the pepperoncini juice from the jar too!)
  • Add water over everything.
  • Cook for 6-8 hours on low.
  • When done, the meat should shred easily. Remove the meat to a tray to shred and use a gravy separator to skim the fat from the gravy.
  • If you like, use the flour to thicken the gravy on the stove.
  • Serve over noodles or mashed potatoes with roasted vegetables or a salad.

    1. I think several would be great with pork although I’ve never tried them! Off to add a pork roast to my grocery list to experiment!
