What We Made Wednesday: A1 Rib Roast in a Crockpot

We are heading into crockpot season soon but my husband and I couldn't wait for it. So a couple weeks ago we made an A.1. Rib Roast in the crockpot. In our household, A.1. and red meat just go together like a PB&J sanwhich. We cannot have one without the other. So we found a tasty recipe that has both. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare and in about 8 hours you'll find yourself eating a a nice hearty meal.

Here is what you'll need...
  • 3/4 cup A.1. Sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 packet of onion mushroom soup mix
  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (2lbs to 2 1/2lbs)
  • 1lb baby red potatoes, halved
  • 1 16oz package of baby carrots
  • 1 package frozen pearl onions

How it's done...
Mix the A.1., water, and onion mushroom soup mix and set aside. Stick your roast and vegetables in the crockpot, and then pour the mixture you set aside over all the the meat and veggies. Set you crockpot on low and check back 8 hours later for a yummy meal!

The recipe looked great as is, but we made a few changes. Like I mentioned before, we love A.1., so we added a little more than the recipe asked for. We also love pearl onions instead of a regular onion and plus no tears! Our potatoes could have gone in whole but they were a little on the bigger side we we halved them. Lastly, our roast was too big for our pot so we had to cut it up. In the end, it was more of a stew but the meat was still tender and juicy. We love veggies so I would have added more as well!

What kinds of other veggies go well with a crockpot roast or stew?
How would you add your own spin to this recipe?

Thanks for stopping by!
