Crockpot “Roast Beast”

Had two different smaller cuts of roast beef that added to about 4.75 pounds and a nice new, barely used, Crockpot™. Yeh, the brand even. Automagical nearly everything. Kinda cool, so. . .

Rolled the two cuts of beef around in some salt and black pepper, then rolled ’em around in a wee bit of flour. Browned ’em in a hot pan, then. . . Oh, heck, I’ll just do it semi-right:

    1. It turned out remarkably well. Juicy, fall-apart meat and a broth that’s as good as I’ve ever had from any roast. I really like the way the new CrockPot™ my Wonder Woman gave me for Xmas does the job. Set the time for each function and when it’s expired it just “automagically” turns to “warm” mode. I’ve always had manual ‘pots before and never wanted one of these “automagic” ones, but now? Not going back w/o a fight. *heh*
