Home Blessings....yummy recipe to share

I want to share a recipe that I found on the Internet this past week for Pork Roast. It is a crock-pot recipe and I just love my crock-pot so much I had to give this recipe a try. Bryan bought me my new crock pot last Mother’s Day of last year and I love it so much.

Here is the link to the place I got the recipe ( I include it because it has a way to change the number of servings. I thought this was so cool.

When the link first pops up it is 12 serving, and that is a lot for me since I really only have 2 adults eating. (Bug usually just wants some kind of finger food for dinner- such as carrots, and fish sticks) The web site does have a way of changing the number of servings and I tried it and loved it.

Awesome Slow Cook Pot Roast

I plugged in 4 servings and it worked so much better.

1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
1/3 cup and 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon water
1-3/4 pounds pot roast

In a slow cooker, mix cream of mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix and water. Place pot roast in slow cooker and coat with soup mixture.
Cook on High setting for 3 to 4 hours, or on Low setting for 8 to 9 hours.

I served it with some mashed potatoes….and it was so yummy. Reminded me of my Mom’s Pot Roast that she makes when I come down to visit.

*** Special Tip ***

The only thing I don’t like about my crock-pot has been the clean it up at the end of using it, but I found a product that helps with the clean up. I think most of you might already know about it, but just in case some of you have not I wanted to share it with you. Trust me it will make clean up so quick and easy that you just might want to do a crock-pot recipe every single day! The product is Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners. You just open one bag up and place it in your oval or round crock-pot and then place all your ingredients in side the bag. The bad does not interfere with the cooking time. When you are done cooking just scoop out the food from the bag, let it cool off and then lift the bag out of the crock-pot and place it right into the trash. I take a wet paper towel and quickly wipe the inside of the crock-pot before putting it away for next time. I still have to clean the lid but that is so much easier then the hard crusted on stuff that ends up in the crock and never seems to soften up enough even when it has been sitting in soaping water for a while. The Liners work wonderfully and make the whole crock-pot experience even more enjoyable. Knowing that I can enjoy the smell of the meal cooking in the crock and not think about the clean up is GREAT!
