Old Fashioned Pot Roast

I made this pot roast last night for company. I didn't want to do anything to extreme the first time my guests ever ate at our home, so I figured a good old fashioned pot roast would do the trick. I have another recipe that is "to die for," but I will post that another time!! I am sure a lot of you internet, food junkie, recipe hunters know what I am talking about!! Yummy!!! If not, then you will just have to check back often to see if I had blogged it yet!!

The Original Recipe:
This is my own recipe that I just know from somewhere or sometime when I was little...

Old Fashioned Pot Roast

3-4 lb. Roast of your choice
1 large onion, quartered
2 stalks of celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
5-6 carrots, chopped
1 tsp. oregano
1/3 tsp. rosemarry
1 bay leaf
2 tsp. beef bullion granules (sodium free)
2 cups water (or enough to cover roast)
salt and pepper to taste
5-6 potatoes, cubed (add to crockpot with roast if NOT making mashed potatoes on side)

Place roast in roasting pan Add the remaining ingredients. Cook 350 degrees for 3 hours or until meat is tender and falling apart. (melt in your mouth--yum!). Serve or ladle out veggies and use juice to make gravy if making mashed potatoes.
