This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef

This little piggy went to the market.  This little piggy stayed home.  These little piggies had roast beef. This little piggy had none these little piggies said "yummmm!" This little piggy cried all the way home.
At least that's sort of what happened.  Granny went to the market(s) and I stayed at her home (for a little while). Then all of us had roast beef, all of us said "yum," and Granny cried all the long.
Granny had no plans of cooking pot roast, fresh green beans, or squash...She was all set to cook Enchiladas. PawPaw, on the other hand, had other plans...
So we little piggies had roast beef (I did a little silent cheer). Now I know how easy it is to make a pot roast like Granny.
All I have to do is gather the following:
3lb beef roast (tenderized)
2 table spoons of Kosher salt
¼ - ½   cup Worchestershire Sauce
1/8  green bell pepper ( more or less to taste)
1 can Campbell's French Onion Soup
1 rib of celery
Throw all of that in the crock pot and put on high for 4-5 hours, then switch it to low and let it cook overnight. The cooking time will vary depending on the roast and the crock pot.
Granny didn't add carrots and potatoes this time) but it just a matter of throwing those items in the crock pot right along with the meat.  

After several hours of cooking.  The meat was thoroughly cooked and tender.  Granny made some sort of  gravy for it by mixing about 1/4 cup flour, black pepper and water (about a half cup).  Mix the liquid  until it becomes  liquid-y, pasty, gooey with the smooth consistency of glue. Pour the mix into the crock pot and mix it in with all the other liquids already in there.  Granny let it simmer in the crock pot for a bit longer and then we little piggies dug in.
Forgot to mention that while the beef was cooking PawPaw grabbed French dip sandwiches for him and Granny.  Granny didn't want the AuJus that accompanied her sandwich so she just added it to the crock pot too.  


  1. Sounds delish. Thanks for sharing.



  2. Delicious! My only problem is.... you touch that raw meat, then you touch everything else in your kitchen!!! GERMS BACTERIA all over the house!!!! I just want to douse you and your house / family in Lysol. Other than that, I loved this post!


Granny and I love to hear from you!
