Crock Pot Roast with Onions and Garlic

onions and garlicThis delicious meaty-meal of an old fashioned crock pot roast with onions and garlic is certain to please any meat lover out there! Being relatively easy to prepare, this meal is perfect for those days that you just want to set it and forget it. The first and most important thing is to choose the right cut of meat. For this pot roast we chose a round rump roast variety, about three pounds of meat. This three pound roast would probably serve about 6 people, but we plan to eat this over a couple days being it’s just the two of us. Make sure the meat is freshly cut the same day if possible. Making this roast takes me back to the days when my mom would do her crock pot roasts, usually putting them in on Saturday night, so the meal could be cooked on low all night and then be eaten the following day after church.

Serve with a side of Oven Roasted Vegetables.
