I know that I have been MIA for a bit….had a terrible cold and work was CRAZY!!!!! I have also been doing some things around the house that I will post pictures of as soon as I am finished. Anyway, I made a very delicious pot roast for dinner last night and thought I would share this amazing one pot meal with you.
4lb bottom roast
1 large onion, sliced
8 oz sliced mushrooms
4-6 red potatoes, cut up
1 small bag of baby carrots
1 bottle of chili sauce
1 can cola
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 cup red wine
salt and pepper
Season your roast with salt and pepper and brown in oil on all sides in a heavy pot. I use my Le Creuset.
Remove roast to a plate and saute onions and mushrooms in pot until onions are soft and lightly browned.
Return roast to pot, add chili sauce, cola, onion soup mix, wine and i fill the empty chili sauce bottle with water and that is the amount of water I use. It also allows you to get all the chili sauce out!
Bring it up to a simmer, cover and let cook for 3 hours.
At this time I add my carrots and about 30 minutes later my cut up potatoes.
It does take a lot of time, but I find it comes out much better in the pot than in my slow cooker.
You can even cook it in a low oven.
The meat is super soft and the sauce is absolutely wonderful!!!!! It is even better the next day!!!!!!
Serve with dinner rolls to sop up the gravy!
