I looooove roast in the CP: haven't put one in the oven, for almost 40 years! I just throw in some broth or wine if we have something like that around, and I don't find they dry out. A pkge of dry onion soup is my fave for creating delish flavor.
I just saw a recipe on here for rice. I have always wondered about rice in the crockpot, and it was super simple. It was 2:1 vegetable stock:rice, cook for 2 hours! It's a nice quick one for when you come home, but then have to run errands or take the kids to sports practice and you want food when you get back. You can just add some leftover protein to it, or canned chicken, and you're good!

I made a pot of vegetable beef soup the other day...yum! I cut up one potato, a quarter of a large onion, sliced two carrots, threw in half a pound of stew meat (I buy a pound at a time, then put half in the freezer for the next batch)...that's my basic, never varying part of the recipe...then I go with whatever I happen to have on hand...this time I added beef broth, peas and green beans...the only thing I never add is tomatoes because I hate cooked tomatoes...lol...anyhow, it always tastes a little different, but it's always good.

I cut roasts in half so they cook a little quicker, and be sure you start out with enough liquid (broth, tomatoes with juice, whatever you use). I also found that a roast doesn't have enough of it's own liquid to keep it from drying out. If anyone else has any other suggestions, I'm listening. Fran
i wanted some fall food last week (we had a cool day before going back to low 90's) and i made beef bourguignon. i made it, ate it, tracked it and was soooo sorry. looks like i'll have to do some make overs of my favorite recipes as i head into a new season with my new lifestyle.
otherwise i use it primarily for chili and soups. roasts dry out too much.
