A.1. Pot Roast

Today turned out to be a perfect Sunday for a pot roast dinner since tropical storm Debby has been dropping buckets of rain on our area all day. It was so nice to dump everything in my slow cooker and let it do all the work while I laid around in my pjs all day and napped.

My husband recently saw a pot roast recipe on the side of an A.1. sauce bottle, so I thought I'd try it out, but I put my own spin on the recipe. And I must say, it came out pretty darn good, and I've tried out several different pot roasts over the years. In fact, I don't think I have ever made the same one twice. This one might very well be my favorite so far.

1/2 cup A.1. Sauce
3/4 cup low-sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon Montreal steak seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 onion, sliced
1 beef chuck roast, 2 and 1/2 pounds
salt and pepper
1 lb pound baby carrots
1 lb baby red potatoes

In a bowl, whisk together the A.1. sauce, beef broth, seasonings and flour. Set aside.

Place the slice onions on the bottom of your slow cooker. Season the chuck roast on all sides with Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Place the roast on top of the onions. Add the potatoes and carrots around and on top of the roast. Pour the sauce all over the top.

Place the lid on your slow cooker and cook on low for 8-9 hours or high for 6-7 hours. Serve with some fresh baked rolls or bread and a side salad.
