This is an easy, quick dinner that can be put in the crock pot. It doesn’t need a lot of babysitting–allowing for other projects (or a nap)!
I purchased a top sirloin roast from my local meat market; it was about 2 1/2 lbs. When I got home, I cut the roast in half with my kitchen shears to create two meals (I cook for one person most of the time). I put the frozen roast, right out of the freezer into the crock pot, added a packet of dry onion soup mix, pepper and a pinch of salt (not a lot because the onion mix can be salty) and about 1 cup of water. It cooked on high for about 3 hours.
This is what it looked like after 3 hours.
I added 4 potatoes…I leave the skin on and just cut them in big hunks.
I also added baby carrots and about 6 or 7 button mushrooms that I quartered.
Add the potatoes, carrots and mushrooms and cook on high for about 60-90 minutes.
Potatoes, carrots and mushrooms…more yum!
Another bonus is 2 cups of beef broth that can be frozen and used for a future meal!
