Cooking a roast in the crockpot with no vegetables

We are super hard strapped for cash and I am cooking two little steak roasts in the crockpot for dinner, i sliced a potato and seasoned each side of the roast, is there anything else I need to do?

  • When you get done with the roast, if you have any liquid left over you can add noodles to it and make a soup with it...

  • I would add a little water to help cook your potato, maybe 1/4 to 1/2 a cup and the potato goes under the roast.

  • I like to sear my roast before I put it in. Then cook on low for @6-8 hours. Put the potatos anywhere you want. Add enough water to cover 1/2 the roast. The potatos will make more water. You can even put in some carrots and celery for taste.

  • If you have onions or garlic, even garlic powder can add some flavor.

  • Add water or some sort of sauce. You cannot put anything in the crock pot without some sort of liquid for it to simmer in. You can use Cream of Mushroom soup, Cream of Chicken Soup, Tomato Sauce, Sloppy Joe Sauce, Speghetti Sauce .. Just anything that covers the steak, adds flavor, and helps keep the roast moist.
