I didn't brown the potroast

Before putting it in the crockpot. Too lazy. Hope I didn't ruin it

1. It will be fine. Browning adds flavor and looks better but it's not mandatory.

2. I skip it sometimes, too...

...it gets super tender and shreds with a fork. So good!

3. You can brown it after. Also, cf slow cooking technique


Cross-reference slow-cooking roasting. The idea is slow cook it in an oven for say 5 hours at 180 deg F and then at the very end, turn up the oven to 500 deg F to brown the roast.

You can try something similar, browning it at the end on a hot pan on top of the stove or similar.

4. It'll be great. You can always add

a splash of Worcestershire sauce or one of those similar old bottled additions. Iíll use fish sauce, which is similar to one of the ingredients in Worcestershire, as its flavor disappears into the juices. And then a splash of lemon juice or vinegar to perk up the flavor since I donít use wine in mine.

5. I never do. I thought about trying it next time to see if it makes any difference.

I love the way carrots taste in a pot roast. I might buy canned carrots if they came that way.

13. It'll be fine

Sometimes the Landlady(!) has me put the roast on the grill after the crockpot to give thE meat a charred outside.

Enjoy your meal!

14. Put it under the broiler and baste it with the

pan drippings. Keep turning the meat until all sides are brown. Works great.

16. I do that

all the time. My pot roast recipe includes a little coffee in the liquid so it's nice and brown anyway. Turn it over about midpoint.

17. Throw in a packet of onion soup mix

It adds the color and umami youíd get from browning.
