I think many food bloggers are more organized than I. I get up, decide what we are having for dinner, pull something out of the refrigerator or freezer and just go for it. Sometimes those meals are good enough to post on the blog. Often times the problem is by the time it’s done, we are ready for dinner. And we’re hungry….
Especially after you’ve smelled something really wonderful cooking. All. Day. Long.
So I didn’t get a good picture of my subject. This roast beef would be a prime example (get it? prime example? 😀 )! However, I did get a really cool picture of the steam coming off this pot roast, haha! See it in the upper lefthand corner the little curly-q? For whatever reason I thought that was more important than getting a great picture of the roast….
Having said that though, if you’re a beef eater – then you need to make this. Like today (or maybe tomorrow since I’m sending this out mid-day!) And it can’t get any easier – there are only 5 ingredients – the roast, beef consommé soup, french onion soup, an onion and a package of onion soup mix. That’s it! Throw it in the slow cooker, set it, walk away and dinner is ready in 8 hours. How easy is that?
To serve alongside I made Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes, some roasted okra w/tomatoes and dinner was ready! It was easy and quite fabulous! Oh! I did take the juices and make an incredible gravy with it, so good! Winner, winner – beef dinner (does that work?) 😀 Enjoy!!
