A Crock Pot meal when short on time

A Crock Pot meal when short on time
I'm so excited to be putting together  quick clean eating dinner and lunch ideas  for my up coming challenge group starting on Monday August 18th.  Why? Because the number one thing I hear from moms is.....I don't have an hour to put into making a healthy meal for the family GREAT me either.  The idea of "mom" slaving over the stove all day and doing so with perfect hair and a cute outfit is just unrealistic it's 2014 and with a school year starting for moms with kids that age this is a must

Crock Pot roast

Prep time: 
Total cook time:  8 depending on your crockpot set on low
Serves: 4
Crock Pot Roast
  • 3 to 4 pound boneless chuck roast
  • 32 ounces low-sodium beef broth or stock
  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons smoked (or regular) paprika
  • 3 teaspoons allspice
  • 2-3 large sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 3 medium sized carrots, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 to 2 pounds potatoes, diced (about 3 medium potatoes)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Spray your crock pot generously with Pam or line it with a crock pot liner.
  2. Pour the beef stock, balsamic vinegar, honey and tomato paste into the crock pot. Stir it together and add in the paprika, allspice, salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Toss in half of the vegetables and place your chuck roast on top of everything. Toss in the rest of the vegetables and stir everything all together as best you can, making sure that the beef is mostly submerged in the broth. Top with your rosemary.
  4. Set the crock pot on low and cover. Let it cook for 6-8 hours on low. If you can, check on it every so often and give it a little stir (this isn't necessary if you are away from the house).
  5. When ready, move the roast to a cutting board and slice to serve. Serve with the vegetables and juices from the meat and broth. A salad might go well here too, but we were all about meat and potatoes that night. Serves 4.
