This roast will make you happy

We rarely eat red meat. But this last weekend, after 6 years of marriage, I got up the courage to cook a roast for Sunday dinner. I thought it might be a disaster, and I'm pretty sure J thought so too. But it turns out you can't go wrong with a crockpot. What would I do without the internet? The roast turned out fantastic, it was even better for lunch leftovers.


Mix together 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp seasoned salt, 1/4 tsp ground cayenne, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder.

Rub mix over the surface of a 3 lb. roast (I used a rump roast). Throw it in the crockpot with 1 1/2 cups of water, 3 beef bouillon cubes, 1/4 cup grated onion, and another 1/4 tsp pepper.

Cook on high in a crockpot with 1 1/2 cups of water for about 4 hours (or on low for 8 hours or so).

I steamed my potatoes and carrots separately.

Serve the roast with the potatoes, carrots, and juice from the crockpot.
