Here’s my secret: I don’t love meat.
I can live on pasta and vegetables and a fish or two.
But my family are carnivores.
So I try to strike a balance. I make meat for them, something that makes a lot of leftovers and then I feel free to make meatless dishes for myself.
This recipe (which I got from Make It And Forget It! cookbook) works perfectly because it’s so easy, uses only two ingredients and makes a lot of meat. It’s like having your own cow in the backyard, practically. Assuming you like that kind of thing.
Crock Pot Pot Roast
4-5lbs. cut of pot roast. Ask the butcher for a cut that’s not too fatty.
16 oz. of barbecue sauce (I like Stubb’s)
Step One: Pour half the barbecue sauce on the bottom of the crock pot.
Step Two: Place roast in crock pot.
Step Three: Pour the rest of the barbecue sauce over the roast.
Step Four: Cook on low for 6 hours.
Slice and enjoy with a side vegetable or mashed potatoes.
