Also, I will unload the ABBA and try out one of the dusty CD's. Let's see, I wonder what "Back In Black" means....

Peace!
Rock on!

Happy roasting, ottenm!

Roasts only listen to hard rock. Abba will work in a pinch, but I would do Black Sabbath or AC/DC. JMHO.

try Pink Floyd - You get a little of everything! Good luck with the roast.

If you're doing it in a crockpot , I agree with dawgluver. My mornings are hectic too, so I put the veggies in the bottom, roast over that, add liquid and seasoning the night before. Leave in the fridge overnight then pop in the insert and turn it on before we leave. If it's a pot roast, it works great - an oven roast is a different story.

I cook my pot roast in a dutch oven, lets me sear it, deglaze, and braise properly all on the stovetop, leave the oven for roasting the veggies--which BTW are better cooked separately in the oven and not with the roast! I can also remove the meat and reduce the braise liquid for a nice sauce. I wouldn't even know how to operate a crock pot or slow cooker, I've never used one before.

So, you don't roast the vegis in the same liquid as the meat? Do you dry roast the vegis? How the heck long do you braise your pot roast that the vegis aren't as good done with the meat?

I love the veggies in the same liquid as the roast (so much flavor from the liquid) - if I have time and the chance to stop home mid-day, I par-boil them the night before and leave them out of the crock pot in the fridge overnight - pop (throw, fling, toss, whatever verb suits) the roast in come morning and add the partially cooked veggies early afternoon and turn the temp from low to high. Works every time!
