No Fail Roast

Hi, everyone. I'm so excited to be a part of an actual cooking blog! My husband would laugh his head off, but nevertheless here I am!

I'm sharing this recipe for no-fail roast. It's a great Sunday dinner, weeknight dinner, or even a "company meal".

Chuck Roast (this cut of meat is pretty cheap, and really is the best one to use for this recipe)
5 beef bouillon cubes
1 - 22 oz. b*er (we use C*ors)

Spread cubes on bottom of crockpot (I have the oval kind, rather than the tall round version). Place roast on top. Pour b*er over. Cover & cook on low for 8 hours.


If you want to jazz it up, you can cut slits in the top of the roast & insert 1 garlic clove into each slit (even though I'm a garlic lover, I didn't care for it in this recipe)

Around hour 5-6, you can add onions & mushrooms if you'd like.

We use the gravy to pour over homemade mashed potatoes. Yummo!

And I promise, you can feed it to your kids...the alc*hol burns off.



(I'm using * so that no one googles those words & finds our blog.)

I have roast on the menu for next week. I will be sure to try it this way. Sometimes mine works, sometimes it doesn't.

Looking forward to trying it.

This is a fall & winter menu staple at our home. I never would've thought it would be good, but it's great. It has a very hearty taste.

Yum! I usually use the "bag-n-season" for my roast and I love it, but it'd be nice to shake things up a bit!
