Mmmm. Pot Roast & Gravy Recipe
I cook to taste, so that means very few of my recipes have exact measurements. It's more fun that way.
This works for any roast, and the gravy is easy to make. You'll need:
1 Beef Roast. (I don't eat pork, so I don't know if this recipe would work)
Red cooking wine
Beef Broth or Bouillon.
1 Medium Onion (diced)
As much Garlic as you can stand. (minced)
Your Favorite Herbs. (I prefer thyme, sage, basil, marjoram, parsley & savory with this one)
Add desired amount of Red Wine, Worchestershire Sauce, and Beef Broth or Bouillon. to the crockpot.
Add onion and minced garlic
Add rest of veggies.
Add Bay leaf
Rub the roast w' herbs and pepper
Place roast in crockpot and fill it with water to the top of the roast.
Sprinkle in more herbs and pepper.
Cook on lowest setting for 10-12 hours until falling apart.
Liquid from roast
(Optional) Beef Bouillon or Broth
Remove desired liquid from crockpot and pour into a saucepan.
Blend cornstarch with milk and add to the broth.
Bring to a boil and Stir until thickened.
Season with herbs, pepper and more Beef Bouillon/Broth as needed.
