Kitchen Blog: Crock Pot Chuck Roast

| | Comments (14) | TrackBacks (0)

No time to blog substantively because I'm off to meet Blog Fu guy. But I do need to put a chuck roast on to cook so we'll blog that, perhaps initiating a new category here in the process.

(And I must say this notion of blogging one's household chores could yield a veritable font of material from yours truly. This could be a new era.)



Title of Project: Joe's Very Easy To Prepare Chuck Roast

Purpose of Project: Get finished and out of the house ASAP

Hypothesis: From start to finish, I can get everything into the crock pot in less than five minutes

Procedure:

1). Take all of the following ingredients out of the refrigerator, shopping bags, kitchen cabinet, or wherever else they happen to be:

Salt
Pepper
Rosemary
Bay leaf
Minced garlic
1 pkg Wegman's stew vegetables (onion, potato, carrot, celery)
1 pkg Wegman's sliced onion and pepper
(If you don't have a Wegmans, you could buy a vegetable "party tray" at any supermarket and use it. Do not use the dip)
1 pkg Sliced shitaake mushrooms
3-5 lb chuck roast

2) Put them all in the crock pot

Total elapsed time between first and second photographs: 3 minutes 35 seconds, including putting dish in sink, spices back in closet and trash in the trash can.

3) Turn crock pot on for 8 hours, low heat.

Stay tuned for updates in about 7 hours.

UPDATE: Not too shabby.

To be a little more precise, and without any risk of hyperbole: It may be one of the best dishes I've ever experienced on the face of this Earth, with a tastiness quotient approaching a Jacob- and -Esau - birthright- sacrifices level of savoriness, a total Biblical three-star cuisine scenario.

A good dish.
