This was a fantastic meal!!! It got rave reviews from all of us... especially the hubby.
His welcome home meal consisted of:
Southern Pot Roast
Spicy Asparagus Spears
Crash Hot Potatoes
Frozen Orange Dream Pie
I'll start with the pot roast recipe, and then post the other recipes in separate posts.Southern Pot Roast
1 boneless beef chuck roast (2 1/2 pounds)
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
1 package (9 oz) frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chooped
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Cut roast in half; place in a 5 qt slow cooker. Sprinkle with Cajun seasoning. Top with corn, onion, and green pepper. Combine the tomatoes, pepper, and hot pepper sauce; pour over vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 5 - 6 hours or until meat is tender. Serve corn mixture with a slotted spoon.
I cooked this roast for about 7 hours and it was so tender... It just fell apart. And the vegetable mixture!!!! Wow, it was so so so good. Don't be decieved by looks and leave it in the crockpot. You must eat the veggie mixture with the pot roast. The flavors are delicious!
*I found this recipe in an old Quick Cooking magazine.
