A1 Roast

Last night for supper, I made a roast.  Thank goodness for a slow cooker!  I used Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners for the first time and really love the way they made clean-up so quick and easy!

My teen son loves to eat this particular roast.  Here’s the recipe from A1 and then I’ll tell you what I did differently.

Ingredients
1/2 cup A.1. Original Sauce
1/2 cup  water
1 pkg. (0.9 oz.)onion-mushroom soup mix
1 boneless beef chuck eye roast (2-1/2 lb.)
1 lb. red potatoes
1 lb. baby carrots
1 onion, thickly sliced

OK, here’s what I used:

Ingredients
1 cup A1 sauce
1/2 cup water
1 boneless rump roast (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 tbsp. onion powder
1 large russet potato

Directions
Insert the slow cooker liner into the slow cooker, leaving the edges out of the cooker.  Add the roast.  Mix the water and A1 sauce together and pour over the roast.  Sprinkle with onion powder.  Cook on HIGH for about 7 hours.

Peel and dice the potato.  Open the slow cooker lid and carefully remove the roast.  Slowly put the diced potatoes into the slow cooker.  Place roast on top and cook on HIGH for another 45 minutes.

Remove roast and let it sit for five minutes, covered in foil.  Remove potatoes when the roast is ready.  Serve with a veggie of your choice.
