To Die For Roast

Recommended Posts

I made my first meal using a crock pot with this recipe last night. Towards the end, I tasted it and added a bit more water. It was great!

 

 

The best part was that my DH ~ crock pot snob and the true chef in the house ~ thought it was a keeper! Thank you!!

Hey guys,

 

Maybe I missed it, but does anyone know the points for this ?

here ya go, Amy....

I've got this in the CP this morning and it smells wonderful! I added cut up potatoes and baby carrots and used a "beef chuck top blade roast" (3 oz = 7 pts).

 

For those that were interested in the calories for the seasoning packets, they are very low. I used -

 

Good Seasons Italian (8 servings per pkg) - 2.5 g dry mix = 5 c / 0 f

McCormick Brown Gravy Mix (4 servings per pkg) - 1 tbsp dry mix = 20 c / .5 g f

Hidden Valley Original Ranch (16 servings per pkg) - 1.8 g dry mix = 5 c / 0 f

 

I use the low-sodium gravy packet and slice the roast in half length-wise before putting it in.

Hi just a quick suppose on this. Suppose you would use pork. I have a lot of pork and was just wondering. Really sounds like a roast recipe though. Again just wondering. Thanks Donna

I make this all the time and it's always a hit.

I havent tried it with chicken but I bet it would be good!

I found the salt overwhelming and that somehow the gravy had an unpleasant "packaged" taste.....maybe it's just my tastebuds, but my husband agreed.....

Two people mentioned they made it with pork:

I made this Saturday and used a Pork Roast and Added chopped up Potatoes and Carrots. My family loved it. Even my husband who is not a fan of Crockpots.

 

Thanks for the recipe.... I think I may try it in the future with chicken too.... like suggested

I cooked this tonight and it was yummy. I used the following substitutions:

 

4 lb Pork Tenderloin Half (marinated in onions/garlic - purchased at Costco)

 

1 packet of pork gravy mix (couldn't find a low sodium one)

 

10 oz water

1.5 lbs of red potatoes, cut into even pieces

 

1 Large onion, large chopped

 

3/4 lb Carrots (3 Large), large chopped

 

After cooking, I seperated the pork loin and veggies from the sauce and thickened it with cornstarch on the stove to make a yummy gravy. DH LOVED it!!!

 

I ran it thru mastercook and it came out at 9 pts per serving for 8 servings. It didn't seem like it would be that filling from looking at it, but it was very satisfying. It was on the salty side though, so I would definitely recommend using a low-sodium gravy packet if you can find one. I'll definitely be making this one again!

 

 

I have another question:

 

I am wondering if anyone can come up with some substitutions for the salt issue. We need low-salt versions of food in our home, and I could use some help with that, if there are people familiar with cooking on the forum. Any suggestions are helpful, including options of using spices instead of packets. :)
