Thanks for all your comments on "Pinching Pennies" . Eyelandgirl said she stretches a roast out to make a couple of meals. This is a great idea and one we use a lot here at our house. I like how she suggested taking some out before putting it on the table. If they don't know it's there they won't eat it and you will surely have some left for another meal!
In honor of Eyelandgirl, today I give you a recipe for a roast! This recipe is called "Delicious Pot Roast". The name says it all. This is one delicious pot roast people. You gotta try it. I promise you will like it!
Delicious Pot Roast
-one pot roast, any size you like (rump roast, or whatever you usually use for roast)
-4 potatoes, washed and cubed
-4 carrots, diced (or you can just throw in some baby carrots)
-4 cups tomato juice
-1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
-¼ tsp. Dried mustard
-1 Tbl. Salt
-½ Tbl. pepper
Add to a ziplock bag. Seal and mush to coat roast and veggies.
SERVING DIRECTIONS: Thaw (at least to softened stage). Pour meat and sauce into crockpot. Cook on high 6-8 hours. The sauce can be thickened with cornstarch to serve with the meat. To make sauce (if desired) pour sauce into saucepan. Mix cornstarch with cold water until dissolved (you will need 1 tablespoon of cornstarch for every cup of sauce), pour into saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat mixture bubbles and thickens. Turn down heat and simmer a minute or two. Serve with the meat.
Once you have cooked the roast you can throw any leftovers back into the freezer!
