My sister bought me a cute little crock pot a few years ago to make overnight oatmeal.
Lately I’ve been trying to make a one-person sized pot roast in it. I have used some lower steak cuts from my friend’s farm, added in these great little potatoes, local carrots, onions, BBQ sauce and red wine. It makes a great little dinner…and then I turn it into this on day two.
I sautéed more carrots, green onion and sweet potato. Added all the leftover pot roast bits in (beef, onion, carrot and juice), tossed in some beef stock, a little more wine, salt and pepper, and a cup of leftover rice. And voila I have lunch-sized hearty soup for a week.
