So, today we're going a little off the beaten track here at my rambles...and hey. It's a ramble. That's sort of what happens.

Yesterday, I made pot roast. I experimented from my tried and true classic, in several ways, and came up with a real winner. So good, in fact, that I'm going to share the recipe with you lot.

Pot Roast with Potatoes and Mushrooms.

You will need
3.5 quart crockpot.
Three lb pot roast.
one can cream of mushroom with roasted garlic
two large potatoes.
one packet liptons onion soup mix.
four-five mushrooms.
One half cup water.

Brown your roast. This is something that many people don't know to do, and it shows in your flavor. Sear each side of your meat until it is a nice crispy golden brown. While you are doing this, cut your potatoes into discs about half an inch wide, and then cut those disks in half.

Line bottom of crockpot with potatoes. Sprinkle in half of soup mix powder. Place meat in pot, line sides of meat with potatoes. Leaving room for mushrooms to be added later. Open can of soup, spread over top of roast. Sprinkle remaining half of soup mix on top of this. Add water.

Cook on high for four hours. Then add four-five sliced mushrooms, and continue cooking on high for another two hours.

Slice and serve.
