Happy Hump Day!
I had to put up a quick blog post for my readers simply to tell you to go and make this roast. ASAP. Go buy the ingredients today and have it for dinner tomorrow.
I call it “Proposal Roast” because the first time I made it, my husband took one bite, pushed his chair away from the table. He got down on one knee, asked me to remarry him, never leave him and to make this once a week. I can’t guarantee a ring single ladies, but I can guarantee that this is easy, delicious, and low carb.
Four things you need:
- A 2-3 pound chuck roast
- a packet of powder ranch dressing mix
- a packet of AuJus Gravy mix
- one stick of butter
This is it. Get out that crock pot and put all the stuff in, and leave it alone. I go low for 8 hours or so.
Ya’ll. Get a chuck roast. Don’t get eye of round, rump roast, or any of those other cuts. Chuck equals luck ladies. And stop being scared of butter. Put the whole stick in your roast, top your veggies with it, and mix it in your coffee.
Back to dinner.
Never mind. You are done. BAM! Go to work, go to yoga, go get a mani, or go to Target by yourself. Read a book, go to lunch, take a nap.
I make this once a week and the re-proposals keep coming. Do you think I have to do any dishes after this? Have you seen my new boots? Going out with the girls? Yep. You get the idea.
We usually have ours with some type of veggie, and I heard it is great on sandwiches. I am working towards Vegas abs, so no bread for me. But this roast with some steamed broccoli, mashed cauliflower or a side salad is so satisfying.
