Love, Love, Love this Pot Roast.
I have tried others recipes but always have come back to this one.
1 chuck roast 3 to 4 pounds ( the size really doesn't matter. It can be bigger or smaller)
1 large onion chopped up.
6 to 8 button mushrooms.
A hand full of the leaves from one stalk of celery or 1 stalk finely chopped.
1 can of mushroom soup
1 package of dried brown gravy mix.
1 tbs of minced garlic
2 full tsp of Italian seasoning ( Don't brush off the top of the measuring spoon when taking it out of the jar.)
about a 1/2 of a cup of fresh parsley leaves.
Mix the mushroom soup,Italian seasoning, and brown gravy together. DON'T ADD WATER . You will get plenty of liquid from the roast. ( It will make it,s own thick gravy) . Place your onions and mushroom in the bottom of your crock pot. Add your roast then spread your garlic on top of it. Pour your gravy mixture over the roast . Add your celery leaves and parsley leaves. If you are using celery stalk add it with the onion. Turn your crock pot on high for three hours then down to low to finish cooking for the rest of the day.
If you have a high watt crock pot you can leave it on low all day. But I have found that giving it that three hours on high real adds to the flavor.
The next night I cut up the leftover meat then added it back to the gravy, add sour cream to it Poured it over noddles . It was wonderful.
