Pot Roast

3 lbs. chuck roast
approx. 2 lbs. baby red potatoes, cut into halves
4-5 carrots, peeled & cut
1 medium sized orange, chopped
2-3 celery stalks, chopped
salt, to taste
seasonings of your choice
(I use 1 Tbsp. chile powder, 1 Tbsp. cumin, fresh rosemary)
2 bay leaves
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. flour
1 1/4 cup beef/chicken stock (you can also add 1/4 cup red wine to 1 cup stock)

Rinse meat clean and pat dry with paper towels. Add seasonings and rub into meat. Let sit 10 minutes. (This is a good time to prep your vegetables.)
Heat large skillet on stovetop with enough oil to coat the bottom. Sear meat on each side until outside is browned. Add chopped onions, potatoes, carrots and celery into crockpot. Place seared meat on top. Deglaze skillet with butter, add minced garlic. Mix quickly. Add flour and continue mixing, scraping the tidbits on the bottom of the pan. Pour in beef/chicken stock and let cook a couple of minutes until gravy thickens a little. (It won’t be too thick.) Remove gravy from stovetop and pour over meat in crockpot. Place bay leaves and fresh rosemary sprigs on top. Cover and set crockpot to Low. Let slow cook 8 hours until meat is fork tender, and enjoy!
