Sunday Dinner

Best Roast Ever
1 chuck roast
½ onion sliced
½ cup red wine
2 cups beef broth
1-2 tablespoons corn starch
garlic and pepper to taste

Combine beef broth and corn starch in a saucepan. Heat to a boil and stir constantly until thickened. Spray crock-pot with cooking spray. Put ½ the onions in and then the roast. Sprinkle with seasonings. Pour in wine and gravy.
Cook low for 8 hours or high 4 hours. When the meat is done it should fall apart. If it doesn't cook longer.
Serve with mashed potatoes and your favorite green veggie.
Leftovers ideas:
roast beef sandwich
pot pie. -Combine with a can of mixed veggies. Place in pie plate and top with pie shell. Flute edges and cut slits in top to vent. Bake on 400 until golden brown.

Good recipe, I am always looking for recipes for the crock pot. I like the McCormick spice packets for the crock pot. I have made, Pot Roast, Beef Stew, Italian Herb Chicken, Chili and Chicken Noodle Soup.

I like this recipe. How many pounds was your roast?
