BUTTER ROAST.

RE: BUTTER ROAST.




The packets of Gravy and Au Jus probably made of the same chemicals so what's the dif ?

I often use my slow cooker for various things. It does lots of things but roasting is not one of them. For this application a chuck roast would be best. Butter is a wonderful thing and I support the use of it for just about any reason.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




It's in the crockpot now...made it exactly like More Cowbell said...no peppers either. It should be done by 5 pm. (7 hours) It's killing me not to lift the lid and stir it or something!!! But I won't. Let you know how it turns out....Didn't put veggies in either....going to have noodles with it.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




I had a crockpot that I never used. A renter suggested in our guestbook that it would be nice to have a crockpot at the cottage, so I took it there and left it last year. Now I have to go buy another one so I can try this recipe at home!


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




I hardly ever use mine, but if this turns out as good as it smells, I'll be using it more & probably taking it along to the OBX.....stick a meal in it in the morning & have it all ready by dinner time!! Can't beat that.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




I managed to find a packet of the au jus yesterday and it's in the crockpot now. Smells sooo good. Can't wait to try it!


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




Let us know how it turned out!! I'm buying a few pkgs of au juice next time I'm at the store to keep on hand!!
Are you having a hard time keeping from opening the lid and peeking in???? I can't stand it....1-1/2 hours to go!! I have not looked yet.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




^^just "spin" the lid on top of the pot. the condensation will clear and you can look w/o opening. Laughing smiley

Ours has close to 2 hours left and I haven't lifted the lid, yet..but I don't know how much longer I can hold out. I will try to resist temptation, though.

You can tell by how good it smells that it's going to be absolutely delicious.




RE: BUTTER ROAST.




...sounds like stroke in a pot to me.... Sad smiley ....


Nah...fat won't kill you. It's wheat and sugar (white carbs) that will kill you. We didn't use noodles or taters. We used mashed cauliflower.

We added carrots, green beans and onions at the last hour. YUMMAY!

And for those who don't think this is OBX related...please think about all the threads that ask, "What do you cook on vacation?" and here is one simple, delicious, can't mess up recipe for big crowds.

Judy thanks for testing it out!

I used the wrong cut of roast - I used 'spensive' stuff and though it is still delicious, I think a cheaper cut of meat would have been BETTER.

I went with total cost for the experiment, though, and bought a more-per-pound-butcheaper-total roast.


I told the butcher at the store about this recipe and asked him what the cheapest cut for a roast would be and he said for sure it was a chuck roast. Which wasn't really "cheap"...nothing is.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




Ours will be done around 7. Doing the sour cream and mushrooms, beaujulais(a little) thing for the sauce. Can't wait!!!


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




We just had ours...I had carrots and small potatos with a cut up onion in the mix. It was delicious, I made the gravy a little thicker with some milk and sour cream and wondra (superfine flour that won't lump). Thumbs up


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




We had ours - delicious!!! I added in potatoes, onions and carrots.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




We had ours too, but no carrots or potatoes...I served it with noodles. It had lots of juice (gravy type) I'm wondering if it would be just as good without the stick of butter? It gave it a good flavor alright, but I'm wondering if it would be ok without it? Next time I'll add veggies too. It was very good. Did you guys use a chuck roast?


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




OK, I'm sticking my neck out here...my roast was dry. It was chewy. It had great flavor though. I used a rump roast, not chuck and it was a 3lb roast. We added mushrooms at the end but not sour cream or the wine I originally discussed.
Anyone else have this? It was edible but my son didn't finish his helping. What went wrong?


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




We used a 2.5 pound chuck roast - not dry at all and great flavor.

I haven't tried this particular recipe, but I'd say wrong cut of meat. For this kind of cooking, chuck roast is the only way to go IMO.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




Haven't tried that recipe yet but it looks tasty!

Me Honey adapted her mom's meatloaf recipe to cook in our crockpot - BEST i've ever had!

We seldom used ours but recently found this great cookbook and i'm anxious to use the crockpot more often.

I used a chuck roast also, there was a lot of gravy. Maybe because I also had the veggies in there? I just plopped the stick of butter on top of the roast..maybe you just had a really lean cut?

It might have been too good a cut of meat. It was on sale 2-4-1 so half price and hard to pass up. I'll find a chuck and try that next time.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




What's the deal about lifting the lid on the crockpot? I use mine all the time and lift the lid to stir it around, no problems ever.


RE: BUTTER ROAST.




Question.... Do you all use the crockpot liners? I swear by them. Real easy clean up. Oh yeah, I can't spin my lid..... It's an oval one. Wink smiley

Ours is an oval too. Lifting the lid lets out all the condensation and for a recipe with no liquid, I'm guessing you want to catch everything and keep it in there.

Yes on the liners and our crockpot is oval as well - the roast fit perfectly - Laughing smiley
