6" by 6" recipe page Melt in Your Mouth Roast

Happy Friday! I have a great recipe for you to try during these busy Holidays. This is my favorite way to make a roast. The crock pot does all the work! We love onions with beef and the combo in this is perfect. I like to make it with the gravy when we want mashed potatoes. If you choose to make the gravy, remove the roast and add the flour and water mixture and cook on high for about 10 minutes until thickened. But I also make it alot and shred it instead of making the gravy, for serving on buns. It's great as leftovers and it also freezes well. It's a go-to recipe for me when I am having company but don't want to be in the kitchen all the time. I found this recipe in my Southern Living cookbook several years ago and wondered if it lived up to it's name. Yep. It does . It melts in your mouth!

Once again I noticed my photo for the recipe won't enlarge. I still haven't figured that out yet, so here it is :
Melt in your mouth roast
1 large onion, sliced
1 3-4 lb. roast, cut in half
1 tsp. oil
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
For gravy:
3 T. flour
1/4 c. water
Place onion in crock pot. Rub roast with salt and pepper. Fry in oil in a large skillet until browned on all sides. Place on top of onion in crock pot. Take Worcestershire sauce and deglaze in skillet by scraping the particles that cling to the bottom of the pan from the roast. Pour over roast in crock pot. Cook on high 1 hour, then on low about 6 hours. {sometimes less than that} At this point you can shred the meat to use for buns, or you can remove the roast and add the water and flour mixture to make gravy. Yum!
