I picked up tacos because I didn't feel like cooking.

I want to put this on the menu for this week! Do you just put everything in the crockpot - root veggies at the bottom, chicken(?) on top, then balsamic vinegar - any stock?

It's graciousmomma's idea, but I'll tell you what I did. I put a beef roast in the crockpot, added wedged onions, halved carrots, celery sticks, and halved peeled russet potatoes around the roast. I seasoned the roast and veggies with salt and pepper and then poured about a half a bottle of Newman's Own Balsamic Vinaigrette on top. Cooked on low for about seven or so hours.

Here's what GM posted:

Dinner tonight is focused on using up some of the things I had accumulated from our weekly produce baskets the last couple of weeks. I stopped by the store yesterday as well, and they had a pretty good sale on beef roasts, so I bought 3 - one to use tonight, and two to put in the freezer for now. Anyhow, in the crockpot, I have the roast cooking along with a variety of mostly root vegetables (sweet potatoes, onion, turnips, celery, minced garlic, and carrots). I dumped a bottle of Newman's Own balsamic vinaigrette over the top. It is smelling amazing!

I used a beef roast, but I think it would work for chicken, too. No stock, just a bottle of balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing. I used a whole bottle on mine, but I probably had a larger roast and more veggies in my crock pot than Charla did, since I am feeding 7 people. I did put my veggies on the bottom and the roast on top for mine, but any way you want to arrange it probably works just fine!

I'm late to the party, how long do I cook the crock pot roast? Mine is almost 3 lbs. I'll put it on high so maybe 4-5 hours?

I've done roast 4-5 hours on high in the crockpot. It's usually a little tougher though.

I always cook mine on high for 4-5 hours...I am usually not organized enough to get it put in there in enough time to cook it longer. It always seems to come out just fine!
