Description

A great crock pot recipe, adapted from Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”. It’s a perfect meal for Sunday afternoon/evening, especially in the Winter. And it’s also a good team dish as Christine and I demonstrated this past Sunday. We found the recipe from a combination of the crock pot user manual, the Joy of Cooking, and internet searches for “beef crock pot recipes”.

Ingredients

2-3 lbs beef (boneless pot roast)
4-6 bacon strips
4 cloves garlic
1 onion
2 handfuls baby carrots
2 handfuls mushrooms
1-2 cups red wine
Herbs de provence
Fresh ground black pepper
Parsley
Salt

Directions

Lay 2-3 strips of bacon in the bottom of the crock pot with the minced garlic and onions (cut in 1/3″ wide rings). Place the beef (cut into 4 large slabs if desired) into the crock pot. Throw mushrooms and carrots on top. Pour in the red wine and add spice to the desired taste/smell. Cook on high in crock pot for 4-5 hours or low for 6-8 hours or until meat tender and carrots soft.

Enjoy with fresh buttermilk biscuits and whipped, buttery mashed potatoes on the side.
