Yummy pot roast in slow cooker

Hi All, It was a really busy day, had to run a lot of errands ,and this is what came to my rescue for dinner. A one pot meal , fantabulously delicious and hearty...POT ROAST.

It needs a good 8-10 hours to cook so start in the morning and use a slow cooker and
forget about it till dinner for a yummy feast.

Ingredients :

Meat chunk - Boneless 2-3 pound chunk of meat (lamb or beef) . ( I did not have a piece that big so I used three small stakes of lamb)
onion - chopped 1/2 cup
garlic powder
dried thyme leaves - 1 and 1/2 tsp
veg stock or beef broth
red pepper flakes 1/2 tsp
1 bay leaf
4 cloves of garlic
1 can of diced tomatoes.
bite sized veggies - carrots, celery , potatoes , onions

Procedure :

Wash and pat dry the meat chunk. season well with salt and black pepper on both sides (approx 2 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper powder). Heat 4 tblspn of oil in a nonstick pan.
now brown this meat chunk on all sides. Sprinkle some garlic powder on them and add these to the slow cooker bowl.

Now add chopped onions to the same oil and fry until translucent. add garlic and thyme leaves and saute for 30 sec. Add this to the slow cooker bowl.
Now add the can of tomatoes,all the bite sized veggies , red pepper flakes , bay leaf into the slow cooker bowl and add veg/beef stock until the stake is fully immersed in it. Add some black pepper and cook on high for 8-10 hours straight. You will see that the veggies are perfectly cooked and the meat just melts in your mouth by the end of the cooking.

If you need the sauce to be thicker just remove the veggies and meat on the serving place and in a separate pan add the liquid and boil with 1 tsp corn flour until thick and add on top of the meat.Enjoy with garlic bread.
Bon appetit!
