Small to medium size rump roast
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1 individual size serving apple sauce
2 cups water salt and pepper, to taste
1 small bag sliced carrots
2 medium to large size potatoes, cut up
1/2 yellow onion, sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced
Sear the roast in frying pan with small amount of oil. Sear it well on all sides. Put roast, then vegetables in crock pot. Mix envelope mixes with water and applesauce, then pour over all. Set crock pot on low and let it cook for at least 8-10 hours. The gravy comes out really thick and good, meat falls apart, and all the veggies are super tender. The applesauce adds a certain something that really makes a huge difference!
You can also make stew with this by simply cutting the roast into bite size pieces, then sear in a frying pan the same as the roast. Or you can make the roast for one night, then cut up the leftover meat and mix it back in for stew.
