Spicy Italian Roast

My family all calls this recipe, Spaghetti Roast and this is, hands down, my hubby's favorite roast that I make.  Of course, I love any recipe that can be made in the crock-pot and is ready when you walk in the door.

There is nothing like walking in the house to the smell of THIS roast at the end of a long day!


3 - 4 pound boneless beef roast
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 ( 4 oz.) can sliced mushrooms, drained
1 onion, diced
1 pkg. spaghetti sauce mix
1 ( 8 oz.) tomato sauce

* Note from MiMi: My family are all big gravy eaters, so I double the amount of mushrooms, spaghetti sauce mix and tomato sauce.

Place roast in crock-pot and season with garlic salt.

Add drained mushrooms and diced onions.

Combine package of spaghetti sauce mix and tomato sauce and stir until well blended.  

Pour tomato sauce mixture over all.

Cover and cook on "Low" for 8 - 10 hours OR cook on "High" for 2 hours and then turn on "Low" for 4 more hours.

Serve thickened gravy over hot pasta or rice.

Why am I so scared of crock pots ? I think it was the time I tried to make brown beans and they ended up being really chewy !! I guess I'll have to get over it if I want to make this dish. It looks very tasty!

Yum!! I've never heard of this and it looks so good!! I'm a big fan of the crock pot too....can't wait to try it!

Mmmmm....this is a good one! It's pretty easy too, I need to try this one soon.

Last night I did a take on Chicken Breasts Supreme, minus the beef and bacon. It was pretty good!

Thanks for more great recipes. I can not wait for my power restored, so I can start cooking again. I am so tired of eating out and eating junk. Please pray for our power to be restored soon.

I made this last night and it's my new favorite! So much more suited to my taste than roast and potatoes and carrots. Thank you for taking the time to share! Keep them coming. I'm making the chicken supreme on Sunday.
