Crock Pot Summer Supper

July 10, 2016
Cooking in the summer can mean the choice of how you want to heat up the kitchen. There are only so many days in a row that my family will accept cold salad, and I have to make something heartier for them-no matter what the temperature is outside. 
I came up with this recipe originally as a way to eat wild game that was too gamey on its own. It is a wonderful base for beef as well, and tonight’s dinner proves it.
Quick and easy, place your ingredients in the crock pot and walk away. No muss, no fuss.
1 beef roast 3-4 lbs
1 pkg onion soup mix or your favorite seasoning(There is a great GF one in the dressing aisle)
1 can tomato paste
Garlic cloves (use plenty, they sweeten as they cook)
Cook on high for 2 hours and then low for another 4, or until done as desired. 
I started with a frozen roast and cook it all day on high. If hubs is late, I turn it off and keep it covered.
Serve with greens from the garden and a crusty bread. Leftovers are even better!
