MAIN  Granbett’s Pot Roast (Slow Cooker Recipe)




Yield 4-6 servings

Granbett is my sassy, stubborn grandmother.  She grew up incredibly poor in the mill villages around Charleston, SC and never forgot her simple upbringing.  She taught me to always pick up loose change on the ground, and I still do, and think of her every time! She would often make a pot roast when our relatively large family of cousins, etc would visit, and this recipe is inspired by that.  If you want the true Granbett experience, make sure to serve with mushy collard greens that have been cooked for hours until they could not possibly be any more bitter...



3-4 lb boneless top round roast

2 sweet onions, thick sliced

4-5 carrots, cut into large pieces about 2 inches long

2-3 celery stalks, small sliced

5 cloves garlic, sliced

½ cup red wine of your choice (something bold like Cab Sauv, Old Vine Zinfandel, Bordeaux)

4 cups beef broth, warmed
