Five Ingredient Roast

Last week I made a great five ingredient roast from the blog, A Year of Slow Cooking which was recommended by my friend IRL Emily who frequently uses her crockpot for all sorts of recipes.

The recipe calls for five ingredients, all of which I had at home since we have a deep freezer full of meat. My husband has farmers in the family so we pretty much purchase one year's worth of red meat in February.


3 pounds beef roast (mine started frozen)
1/3 cup molasses 
1/3 cup dijon mustard (I used honey dijon since that is what I had)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons white or apple cider vinegar (I used 3T)

Toss everything into the slow cooker (the best part of using this cooking method in my mind). Turn the roast over a few times so there is some sauce/seasoning on both sides. 

Cook on low 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours.

I cooked ours for about 7 hours and we got six or so servings out of it. Let me know if you try this or have another good suggestion -- love the tips!!

Looks yummy! And that asparagus looks so colorful with it! How did you cook it? I always forget about it but I need to get some to switch up our veggies.
