Tempt My Tummy Tuesday… Sunday Pot Roast

I <3 eMealsFirst I want to remind you to head over to my eMeals giveaway for a free THREE MONTH SUBSCRIPTION.  There is still time to WIN!  The giveaway ends on May 3rd.

 

I do not know what Sunday morning looks like at your house, but at our home it is a frantic rush.  My husband runs the sound system for our church and I sing on our praise team.  That means we get to rise and shine extra early, getting to the church for sound checks and rehearsal well before other members arrive.    Our obligations also  mean we are usually some of the last to leave after the services are over.  So, when do I have time to prepare a fantastic Sunday lunch?  Well, I don’t.  Therefore I prepare a casserole the night before which will just need to be reheated or I go to my trusty friend, the crock pot!  I love the crock pot as I can dump everything in, turn it to high, and expect a tasty meal when we walk in from church.   An added bonus is how awesome the house smells when we walk in the door.  The savory smells tell me how hungry I am.

This past Sunday I cooked a chuck roast and it was super easy and yummy.  Thankfully I remembered to defrost the chuck roast on Saturday, and I had fresh broccoli and carrots to steam and serve with the meal.  Now, my hubby is a huge mashed potato fan.  But to save time, we often prepare and serve instant potatoes, especially on Sundays when everyone is hungry and ready to eat as soon as we arrive home.

Easy Sunday Pot Roast

Prepare the crock pot.  (I spray PAM in mine.)   Wash and dry off the roast.   Generously cover both sides of the roast with the Montreal Steak Seasoning.   Next cover each side with many dashes of Worcestershire Sauce.  (We love the flavor of the Worcestershre so I use more.) Put the chopped onion on the bottom of the crock pot. Next place the pot roast on top of the onion.  Finally pour the cream of mushroom soup over the roast.  Now, just put on the lid, crank the heat to *high and let it cook until you get home.

*I usually have the roast cooking for about 4-5 hours on high.  Or you can cook it on low for 8-10 hours.

I served the steamed broccoli, carrots, instant mashed potatoes, and toasted french bread with our meal.  It was so good.

Hi Lisa,

For the amount of time & energy I put in most of the rest of the week cooking healthy meals for our family, Sunday lunch is kind of my lazy one! Every single week, we have a bag of frozen chicken nuggets that I heat up & pair with some fresh fruit. Voila! Lunch is served! 🙂

Sundays we usually do a sandwich or leftover lunch for that reason – by the time we get home, we’re hungry! That and we’re working on homework and cleaning and trying to get things done. But your Sundays sound like my almost every days! Yesterday I had less than 15 mnutes to get something into the crockpot and made… but I totally did it. That crockput is my best friend many days 🙂

I hear ya, Michelle. Don’t get me wrong – about Sunday. MANY Sundays we have a hot dog, left overs, or use a coupon at a fast food joint. But, I am always proud of myself when I actually get a “real meal” cooked for the fam. 🙂

You’ve inspired me to start using my crock pot more. It WOULD be nice to come home to the smell of a home cooked meal and dinner ready to serve!

Hi Lisa. Great chuck roast recipe. I’ll have to give this one a try, I like the use of the steak seasoning in it. Sorry, no instant mashed potatoes allowed in our home, hubby can’t stand them. The only reason they are kept in my home is for “crusting” chicken, fish, or chops in place of bread crumbs. We are fortunate enough to get home in plenty enough time from early mass in time to start a nice dinner. Lunch is just a quick fix “whatever” we decide on that particular Sunday, be it left-overs or a quick sandwich. Thanks and have a great upcoming week-end.
