This is my take on a simple, classic recipe my mom (and many others) make in the Crockpot.
3 lb beef roast (I typically see what is on special)
3 russet potatoes, unpeeled and chopped in 6 pieces each
1/2 bag of baby carrots
1 onion, chopped in half and then half again
3 stalks celery, chopped in 3inch pieces
5 mushrooms, cut in half
1 package of dry onion soup mix
1/2 cup red wine (one that you would actually drink)
1/2 cup water
In a Crockpot, add the ingredients as they are listed above, staring with the roast in the middle and the veggies around it. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Enjoy!
