Simple and Delicious Pot Roast

For my anniversary last night, I wanted to cook a good, tasty and hardy meal. This roast is delicious and simple to prepare. My mom used to make this all the time for Sunday Dinners.  It is definitely a family favorite!


2-3 pot roast
3 cubes beef bullion
3 Tbsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp pepper
1 can beef broth for liquid1 cup shredded carrots

1. Cut roast into fist size chunks and place in crock pot
2. Mix beef broth, bullion cubes, garlic, cayenne pepper, cumin, oregano, and pepper together.  Once mixed together, pour evenly over roast.
3. Sprinkle shredded carrots throughout the crock pot
4. Cook in crock pot on high for 3-4 hours then switch to low until ready to eat.  The longer you cook it the more tender it will get.

    Thank you sooooo much for this recipe! I switched to baby carrots and added chunks of russet potatoes (I used 5, peeled and washed) and an onion, and upped the black pepper a little bit. It came out AWESOME. My husband and I ate it for two meals.Here's the link to my version, I mentioned you and gave you the credit for making my dinner a success!
