Crock Pot Italian Style Pot Roast

For me growing up Sundays were typically a huge pot roast dinner.  This is one of those recipes that I can really only ever remembering my Dad make though I’m sure Mom was there with him adding stuff while he wasn’t looking.  While Dad never wrote down recipes, heck Mom almost never did, I had to recreate this all from memory and taste.  This recipe took me FOREVER to  get to near perfect like his.  I still think I’m missing “something” but for the life of me I can’t figure it out however I’m persistent.  Or if all else fails I’ll take some to my sister and brother and see if they can recall.

I’m sure you can recall (unless you’re brand spankin’ new to the site – if so, welcome to the TKW Family!), growing up we had a big household/big eaters.  4 older brothers, my sister, parents and at least 3-6 friends were at every meal.  These people ate a lot.  I mean A LOT!  This recipe is made in a standard crock pot (actually one of my favorite crock pots) but when Dad made it he made in Mom’s HUGE 21.5 quart blue pot that she used for canning (like this one!).  No for real, he made 21.5 quarts of pot roast for dinner!

In this pot would easily be 15 pounds of pot roast, a 10lb bag of potatoes, 2-3 pounds of carrots and a whole bunch of other stuff.  Come join me for a Sunday classic pot roast dinner!
