The last few days have been crazy busy, so I haven't had a chance to post the last few meals I made.   This dinner mission was made a few days ago when I needed something I could just put in the crock pot and go about my day.  My mom has been making this recipe for probably 20 years.  She found it in a store circular ad many years ago and we loved it.  She always browned the roast, added the remaining ingredients, and finished it in the oven.  I didn't have time to babysit an oven so I decided the crock pot would work.

Here's what you'll need

3 lb chuck roast
3 Tbsp oil
1 8oz pkg button mushrooms
1 large green pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced
4 to 5 large carrots
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 14.5 oz cans stewed tomatoes
1 4 oz can green chiles
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp Tabasco (optional)


Heat oil in large skillet and brown both sides of roast.  Remove and place in crock pot.


While roast is browning, prepare vegetables.


Add remaining ingredients to crock pot.  Cook on low 8 to 10 hours.


Serve with your choice of bread.
