Crock Pot -- Pot Roast

(this third picture doesn't do justice to how good this pot roast tasted)


2 1/2 pound boneless chuck roast, cut into 2-inch cubes
1/2 c, plus 1/4 c. flour
1/4 c butter
1 medium onion, sliced
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 clove garlic
1 pkg onion soup mix
3 cups water

  1. cut the chuck roast into cubes- I used my electric knife
  2. coat beef cubes with 1/2 cup flour- I put the flour into a plastic bag- added the meat, shook it up to coat it
  3. melt the butter in a fry pan on the stove then brown each side of each cube of meat (braise)
  4. drain off excess fat
  5. put the meat into the crock pot
  6. add the onions and spices and onions soup mix
  7. pour the water in
  8. turn the crock pot on to high
  9. cover and cook about 5 hours
To make gravy: dissolve remaining 1/4 c flour in a small amount of water ( use a bottle with a lid and put the flour and water in it, put on the lid and shake well)
Stir into the meat mixture, cook on high for an additional 30 minutes.
