For the annual girls Christmas party this year G and I were tasked with making the main dish. We opted for a traditional holiday roast. In all truthfulness, I chose the recipe because I was looking for an excuse to use our Crock Pot BBQ Pit! I ended up leaving the meat rack in place while I cooked the roast which didn’t allow the meat to completely marinate in the Worcestershire and bbq sauce. Because of this, the roast wasn’t as tender as I would have liked but for a first attempt, I think it came out pretty delicious.
- 1 (4 pound) beef round roast
- 2 cups baby carrots
- 8 to10 peeled potatoes
- 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
- 5 stalks celery, chopped
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- Ground black pepper to taste
- 1 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup barbeque sauce
In the pit!
Step 1: Place beef roast in slow cooker, add carrots, onions, celery and potatoes
Step 2: Season with garlic powder and black pepper
Step 3: Mix Worcestershire and barbeque and pour sauce over meat and vegetables
Step 4: Cook on low until the meat is tender, 6 to 8 hours while enjoying a glass of wine :)
I’ve got to hand it to our amigas - the menu was superb! We chowed down on a fresh fruit salad, extra cheesy mac and cheese, homemade sea food gumbo, shrimp with mango salsa and mash potatoes from scratch. I truly appreciate food presentation and these girls delivered. Below are a few pics of our joyous feast!
