Rustic Pot Roast

I had a great looking Pot Roast in the freezer and thought that I would just come up with something new to try. I typically use cr of mushroom soup & Lipton onion soup mix. I got all the elements done tonight so all I have to do in the morning is turn the crock pot on low and wait!
I put a few tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet and got the pan nice and hot and sprinkled the meat with kosher salt to get the juices sealed in.

Here are the ingredients

I cut an onion in half and placed it in the evoo and sliced the celery to caramelize a bit. Then I added the red wine and brought to a slow boil, added Italian pkt, seasonings, pasta sauce and poured over the veggies & roast.

1 2-3 lb roast
2 Tb evoo
1 sweet potato, cubed
1 baking potato, cubed
1 celery stalk, sliced
2 carrots, sliced
1 onion, cut in half
1 pkt Good Seasons Zesty Italian dressing
1 cup pasta sauce
1/2 cup red wine
1/4 cup chicken broth
salt & pepper to taste
1 tsp celery salt
1Tb minced garlic
Sear the meat in evoo, then caramelize onion & celery. Cube & slice all veggies and put in bottom of crock pot. Place meat & onion/celery mix on top. Pour wine in skillet to de-glaze bring to slow boil, then add sauce, broth & spices. Pour on top. Cook on low 8hrs. ENJOY!
1 pkt of Good Seasons Zesty Italian Dressing
