  • for chicken soup I put in water, chicken, celery, carrots, red and green peppers, basil, light garlic powder and chicken bouillion (cubed or powdered). When you go to serve it, I put fresh chives on it OR kale, adds a nice fresh crunch to it. Oh, and I cook the noodles separately on the stove in water and chicken boullion to a nice al dente chewyness and then add those in :)

  • Season the roast with seasoning salt, rosemary and pepper. Pat flour all over the roast. Add some olive oil in a skillet and brown the roast before cooking in the crock pot. Brown it on higher heat, this seals in the juices-only a few minutes each side. Add sliced onions as it is browning.

    In a slow cooker, mix cream of mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix and beef broth. Add 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce and 1/4 cup red wine. Place pot roast and sliced onions in slow cooker and coat with soup mixture.
    Cook on High setting for 3 to 4 hours, or on Low setting for 8 to 9 hours.

    When done, lift roast out and place on a platter. Fish out the onions and place on top of roast. Add 2 TBS white sugar and 1/2 a packet of brown gravy to the remaining sauce in the crock pot. Stir with a whisk. Add cornstarch one table spoon at a time until the gravy is as thick as you like. (If it gets too thick, add a little water.)
