Meal Deal of the Week 1/16

Pot roast is one my favorite things to make, especially in the winter! I love the smell, the ease of letting it sit all day, and its deliciousness! This week at Jewel Beef Chuck Bottomless Roast and Hormel Always Tender Center Pork Roast is on sale for $3.99/lb, which is not the cheapest ever...but when you buy 3 lbs of either, you get Farm Stand Carrots, Sleeved Celery, and a 3lb bag of Green Giant Klondike Rose Potatoes for FREE!  Check out Couponing For 4 for the rest of the Jewel deals right now!

Usually we eat about 2lbs for dinner and get leftovers (for two adults and 2 small kids). So 3 lbs should get 2-3 dinners out of it with all the leftovers!! My mother-in-law taught me how to prepare it and I sort of improvised from there! Here's how I do it:

1-1.5lbs beef or pork roast
2-3 chopped carrots
3-4 chopped potatoes
1-2 celery stalk
2 cloves of garlic chopped
Seasoned salt
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 bay leaf (optional)
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4-1/2 cup of water


1.Place the roast in bottom of crock pot
2. Pour water over roast.
2. Sprinkle vinegar over roast (helps tenderize the meat)
3. Season meat with seasoned salt, oregano, pepper (to your liking)
4. Place chopped garlic over roast
5. Poor chopped veggies over roast
6. Season veggies and sprinkle with Olive Oil
7. Set crock pot to low and cook for 6 hours or more
