I know we have a cooking forum but I kinda need an answer pretty quick. I want to do a roast in the crockpot with taters, carrots and such. Do I need to do anything special when putting raw meat in a crock? How do you guys do it? Thanks..Coach

You can just throw it in if you want. I prefer to brown each side with some olive oil and salt/pepper then dump drippings and all in.

Brown each side like in the oven on broil? Do I need to completely cover the roast with water?

I just brown it in a hot skillet then dump into pot. Should only take 4-5 minutes. I do add water- just enough to cover the meat and veggies.

Season to taste and don't open until you're ready to eat.

I wouldn't put water in with it, I'd use a couple cans of diced maters and if thats still too chunky or dry a can of mater sauce.

you can also add cream of mushroom soup for your liquid, but you do need to brown it first.

Browning helps bring our flavors of the meat, but it is not necessary. I do suggest it, however. I would use beef stock for your liquid.

Campbell's golden mushroom soup is the absolute best. A can of diced tomatoes and other veggies of choice. Season to taste, I like Italian, cover with water and crank it up. You can't overcook it unless you cook the liquid out.

You don't take the twine off. Twine, meat and all into a smoking hot skillet with a little oil. Brown 3-4 minutes per side until all sides are browned.

If you're learning after 25 years of not being allowed in the kitchen, I would suggest you check out http://www.cookscountry.com/ . You can get a 14 day free trial and then $19.95 a year after that. This is how I started learning, when I got serious about my cooking.

I will definitely check out that site. Thanks....I browned it (forgot the oil), put it in some beef broth, added carrots, taters, onions, can of diced maters, turned it on high.. I needed to make a decision if I was going to eat tonight so I went with not adding soup but using some water and broth in the hopes of making my own soup tomorrow.

Anything else I should do?

I had a packet of Onion Soup with my water and a can of cream of mushroom. Just throw it in there with taters and carrotts and I always add whatever seasonings sound good at the time.

Invite your fellow TNdeer members over for dinner. \:D

A few other tips for future browning:
- Use paper towels to thoroughly dry the meat.
- Immediately before browning salt and pepper the meat.
- When placing meat in the pan and turning the meat, do not disturb the meat for the allotted time 3-4 minutes. Leave it alone and let it brown.
- Also for crock pot, recipes use a liquid (broth, beer, wine) to deglaze the pan used for browning. Pour liquid into hot skillet, use spoon or spatula to scrape up brown bits, and pour liquid with brown bits into crock pot.

You might like this site for cooking tips. The Pioneer Woman gets things down to basics, lots of photos along the way, and is generally pretty witty. Here's her roast recipe:

I made a deer roast over the weekend using Emeril seasoning, bay leaves, pack of onion soup and plenty of garlic. I usually use beer for my liquid but used red wine instead. Turned out wonderful. The women my wife work with absolutely loved it.

Cooked it on low about 6 hours then added taters, carrots and onions for 2 more hours.

I think the seasoning is something I'm going to learn more about...like thyme and bay leaves and such. If this turns out ok I've got a duck and a goose breasted out that we killed last week, may have to give that a try!

Don't let it intimidate you. Use fresh, whole ingredients and you can't really go wrong with the crock pot. IMO, you should ditch any recipe that calls for soup mixes, ranch dressing, and powdered garlic or onion. Fresh vegetables, fresh herbs and whole ingredients. Next tim you're at the grocery, pick up a few boxes of Beef Stock (not broth, there is a difference). For cooking wine, I'll buy those little, individual bottles of Stutter Home.

Instead of water, do maybe half & half beef broth for some extra flavor. If you want it more gravy-like in consistency, pat dry the roast, roll it in flour and dust off, then brown it. You may want to also stir in a tablespoon of flour to the cooking liquid before you pour it in.

^^^THIS^^^ is important for flavor.

To test the meat, jiggle it just a bit. When the browning is "just right", the meat will release itself from the pan. Medium high heat is all that's needed.

I freeze my leftover soup and use it on the next one. After that, I start over and freeze what's left. I have tried every broth under the sun and I still go back to the Golden Mushroom soup.
If you have steaks you don't want to grill, throw a pack in and cook like a roast.

Haha!! Forgot to put the wine in so not sure what to do with it now...said nobody


\:D \:D Lmao, well played Coach.


Preds, the geese are flying for the late season goose hunt...the snowmobiles are tuned up and the ice fishing gear is ready...miss Michigan a little? \:D


Don't think I remember how to use a tip-up anymore but can probably hold my own sitting on a bucket in 10 degree weather. \:D
I'd give anything to jump on the old Arctic Cat right now though.

Blue with a side of Brats....... yea, some things I miss for sure. ;\)

Brown or sear 1st.It seals in the juices. Always let your meat rest before cutting it lets the juices redistribute.You'll find your roasts are more tender and moist this way.

IMO, you should ditch any recipe that calls for soup mixes, ranch dressing, and powdered garlic or onion.

No it doesn't. Browning is for flavor. I don't see what you mean by "defeating the purpose".

Negative ghostrider. There's no such thing as "sealing in the juices". Searing will lose more moisture than not searing, 100% of the time. But you're correct about letting it rest to redistribute the remaining juices.

But in a Crock Pot roast, it's a useless conversation anyway ;\)

Coach, use only half the bottle of wine and have a glass or two while it cooks.

You got that backwards. Half a glass for the roast, and the rest of the bottle while it cooks \:D

There's a scientific reason behind that.....I just don't remember what it is. It's not just a mind game, but roasts/stews really ARE better the next day.
