    Pot Roast by Sox inspired by Sub Station 2

    If you've ever had a Sub Station cheese steak, you will know that they keep the meat soaking in something that can only me considered the juice from a pot roast. The meat itself, tastes like pot roast. I totally dig it. Anyhow, the other day I decided to make a pot roast so that Bree could have something tasty for dinner. I ended up checking out recipezaar and getting some good ideas on what makes a pot roast work. I broke it down to what you see here. Jul and others helped me try it out. Everyone seemed pretty happy with it. I liked it and was especially happy with how easy it was to make and clean up. Just wash the crock pot and you're done!

Cut all vegetables into large chunks (1/3 the carrots, 1/8 the potato and onion). Flip over the roast. Put the vegetables around the roast. fit as many vegetables as possible. Add enough water to cover the roast and vegetables. Cook with the lid on for 6-10 hours. Remove the roast and vegetables. Cut the roast to make sure that it is cooked all the way. Serve the meat and vegetables with as much of the 'juices' as desired.
