This recipe of the week comes from my real-life favorite Foodie ~Janelle from ComfyintheKitchen.com
She writes: This is a recipe my mom always made for me as a child…now, I make it for my family! It is the perfect supper to have on cold winter days. If you like garlic as much as I do, you will love the way it is added into the meat to carry out its delicious flavor. Serve with dinner rolls for dipping and a nice garden salad..it will be wonderful.
|I use 1 head of garlic in my roast, but have 2 here to show you what it looks like when I prepare it. I peel the outside layers off like so…|
|And break the cloves apart and peel the outside layer of the cloves off…|
|Then cut into quarters|
|With a sharp knife cut slices into the meat (about an inch through)|
|Fill the holes in the meat with the quarters of garlic on all sides.|
|Place olive oil in a large pan and heat to medium/high heat. Brown all sides of the roast and season with salt and pepper. This will only cook the meat 1/4 of an inch through, but it adds a delicious flavor!|
|Place your roast into a Crock Pot (you can also do this on a stove in a large pot). Season with worcestershire sauce.|
|Pour 1 large can of beef broth over top|
|Prepare your veggies..I have here potatoes cut in halves, onions cut in quarters and baby carrots. (I also really like cabbage, but my hubby doesn’t, so I spare him ..haha)|
|Simply place all your veggies on top of the meat, if the broth does not cover everything you may add water.|
|Cover and cook on high for 6 hours in the Crock Pot. If you are cooking stovetop, place on a medium heat.|
|When your roast is done the veggies will be tender and the roast will flake apart..Mmmm|
