Pot Roast

David Giard

Sogeti Senior Manager Consultant, Microsoft MVP, Host of Technology and Friends Here is a simple recipe for foolproof pot roast. The beauty of it is that you don’t need to buy the most expensive cut of meat. But you do need a large slow cooker. I own a 5-quart crock pot, which is perfect. In this recipe, you may substitute some of the potatoes for other root vegetables, such as turnips or sweet potatoes.

3 lb chuck roast or sirloin roast 1 cup soy sauce 1 cup sherry 2 large potatoes, chopped into ½” cubes 4 oz baby carrots 2 medium onions, chopped into ½” cubes 4 oz can button mushrooms 1 Tbsp salt 1 tsp black pepper 4 cloves garlic, crushed 1-2 bay leaves Rub salt, pepper and garlic into meat. Let stand in refrigerator for 1 hour. Add roast to 5-quart slow cooker. Add vegetables to slow cooker Pour soy sauce and sherry into slow cooker Add bay leaf Cook on low heat for 10 hours.
