MISS ISS I PP I Pot Roast Sans Packets

I'm not known for using packets of anything, with very few exceptions. Here is a recipe I found on Pinterest that called for a packet of ranch dressing and au jus mix....Both definitely out for me.

I start with my garden and pick a large handful of each of these herbs:


Carry to your prep area, wash and dry, then set aside.

Then I carmelise a large onion.  Just use a smidge of oil and add sliced onions, sprinkle with a pinch of brown sugar.   Cook slowly, about 20 minutes with a stir now and again.  Place in a slow cooker.

Next, Brown both sides of a 3 lb. chuck roast in the same pan as the onions.  Place the roast on top of the onions in the slow cooker.  Deglaze the pan with 2 cups veg, or beef stock and a splash of Marsala, and a dab of Marmite.  Pour all this into the cooker. Next mix together dashes of garlic powder, onion powder, and smoker paprika, salt and pepper into 1/4 cup of cornstarch.  Put this mixture over the meat rubbing it in a bit.

Now comes the fresh herbs, grind them up in a food processor and put on the meat.  It is time to adorn the roast with 6 pepperoncinis chopped into rings. The shining glory on the top is a stick of butter. 

Slow cook for 8 hours.  Forget about it!

You will left with a tasty gravy ready to serve with the meat and over potatoes of your choice.  Garnish with a few more pepper rings for a bit of jestiness and color.
