Easy Crock Pot Roast

This is the easiest dinner recipe you will possibly make.  My version of “Mississippi Pot Roast” requires a rub to impart flavor to the meat. The slow cooking method will create a delicious, tender roast your family will love.

Rub for the roast: mix the following:

20160323_1130331 tablespoon Kosher salt

3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

3/4 teaspoon sweet paprika

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon ground mustard

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

Apply rub, liberally to all sides of the CHUCK ROAST. I bought a 4 lb roast and cut it in half.  Set roast in the bottom of your crockpot.

On top of the roast, pour one McCormick AU JUS GRAVY packet and one HIDDEN VALLEY RANCH DIP packet.  Sit one full STICK OF BUTTER on top of the roast.  Lay approximately 8 jarred, roasted red bell peppers (drained) around the butter, on top of the roast.  20160323_113459

Place lid on crockpot and allow to cook on LOW for 8 hours.

After 8 hours, gently remove roast parts (it should be falling apart tender).  Spoon out 1 cup of liquid and combine with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch.

Pour remainder of liquid into a saucepan. Whisk in cornstarch mixture to saucepan.  Continue to whisk on medium heat till thickened.
