I’ve got to be honest, as convenient as it is, I am NOT a fan of the crock pot. Everything comes out one texture: soft (mushy) and one flavor and I’m just not a huge fan. There are, however, times when it serves a wonderful purpose and this is one of those times. So get out those crock pots because this is a meal that is healthy-ish and simple and will please any of you with a “meat and potatoes” man (like me!).
Start with a Beef Chuck Roast and pan sear it on both sides, seasoning with salt and pepper. Put into your crock pot and add some sliced onions or a packet of onion soup mix. Throw in some baby carrots and set it on low for 6 hours.
That’s it for the meat (I know, so simple) it will be SO tender and juicy and delicious when it’s done.
For the brussels, simply toss with 2 Tbs of olive oil and salt and place on a baking sheet and place in the oven at 400 degrees for 25-35 minutes, until the get a little golden and crispy on the outside.
