Here's the cast of characters:
1 envelope of onion soup mix
1 envelope of Au Jus mix
I envelope of Italian Salad Dressing mix
1 cup of water and 8 ounces of your favorite salsa
Plus a 2-1/2 to 3 lb. roast
Line your slow cooker with a slow cooker liner, they make for EASY clean-up! Pour all of the ingredients in the slow cooker.
Whisk everything until completely blended.
Place your roast in the slow cooker and cover tightly.
Cook for 8 to 10 hours. (Hint: Get this ready right before heading out for work and when you get home, dinner is waiting on you!).
Walk away and let the magic happen!
Remove the roast from the slow cooker and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Look how tender and juicy! This roast will literally fall apart and I have no idea how I was able to get it to the platter without it falling apart.
While the roast is cooling, prepare your sides.
Tell this doesn't make your mouth water!
Ok kids, get your calendars out and let's talk 2013 East Tennessee Blogger Get Together!!!
We are doing a Hawaiian Luau themed get together this year. Larry, Chris and I are still up in the air about whether we are doing a whole pig this year, but I can tell you pork will be involved!
Date: Sunday, May 26, 2013 Rain or Shine
Time: Noon until whenever everyone leaves. We will eat around 1:30 PM
Who: Anyone who is willing to make the trip is welcome and of course, bring your significant other!
Where: Larry's place on Tellico Lake which is about 35 miles southwest of Knoxville, TN.
As I mentioned, we will be serving Hawaiian, Island fare. We will be asking for a small donation (approximately $10 per person) to cover the cost of the meat. We won't know exactly how the donation will be until we have a final attendance count.
We will provide tea and soft drinks but please feel free to BYOB.
RSVP: To Larry firstname.lastname@example.org by May 5, 2013.
Final directions will be provided to the individuals who RSVP they are attending.
Larry, Chris and I are are getting really excited because this little get together we started back in 2010 has grown every year and we have always had a wonderfully memorable time. So mark you calendars and plan on joining us for a good time and good food with your blogger friends
