Saucy Pot Roast with Noodles
Trim fat from roast. If necessary, cut roast to fit into a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker (see Tip). Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray; heat over medium heat. Brown roast on all sides in hot skillet.Advertisement
In the cooker, combine carrots, celery, onion and garlic. Sprinkle tapioca over vegetables. Place roast atop vegetables.
In a medium bowl, combine undrained tomatoes, tomato paste, pepper and bay leaf; pour over the roast in cooker.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-setting for 4 to 5 hours.
Discard bay leaf. Cut meat into serving size portions. Serve with hot cooked noodles. If desired, garnish with celery leaves.
Tip: For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
