Super Starts Here.

On the 11th day of Christmas, we remembered to make dinner

on December 22, 2011

Earlier last week, we recognized that the last thing you want to think about at the end of a busy holiday-prep day is…dinner.  That is, if you can stop long enough during the day to remember that you need to make something.

So, today we’re bringing you a fast, easy, nutritious meal that our families love.  The good news is, left overs are even better the next day.  I usually serve this the first night and lay out ingredients to make sandwiches or wraps the following night.  Bake some brussel sprouts to throw on the side.  Those reheat well too.  Bonus: if you have unexpected company drop by, you are covered.

Family Pot Roast

(1)     3-5lb boneless chuck roast

¼ C low-sodium soy sauce

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 C beef broth

1 package of sliced mushrooms

1 T black pepper

3 T tomato paste

2 medium onions, quartered

1 (16 oz) package of carrots, cut into 2 inch pieces

16 small, red potatoes, cut in half

1 T canola oil

1 ½ T whole wheat flour

3 T water

Combine roast, soy sauce, and garlic in a large zip-lock plastic bag; seal bag and marinate in refrigerator at least 8 hours, turning bag occasionally.

Then, despite the remaining instructions, I literally put everything in my crock pot, set it on low for 8 hours and walk away!
