What’s Crocking

What's Crocking was originally a blog that I started for a class as I finalized my undergraduate degree. Now it has turned into a hobby.  Since my move to Utah is only weeks away I thought what better way to keep the magic cooking than by continuing my new found passion in a new place. … Continue reading What’s Crocking

Cinnamon Applesauce

Yummy, Cinnamon Applesauce! Check out this SUPER easy recipe!

Caution: this recipe will make your house smell wonderful!  The majority of the time that goes into this is preparation time of peeling and chopping the apples. I hand picked both Red Delicious apples and McIntosh apples from Door Creek Orchard to make this tasty, two ingredient recipe. Each apple included will yield one small dish of applesauce – the more the merrier.

Roast Beef and Cooked Carrots

Check out my sister blog site ‘What’s Crocking’ Roast Beef and Cooked Carrots!! Yummy.

A recipe courtesy of my family cupboard. My family and I love this fix and forget dish because it is simple and takes less than a minute to put together.  I used a boneless top round beef roast but any cut will work.  The Coca-Cola does a good job of breaking down the beef and tenderizing it to a juicy perfection.  The final dish can be served plain or with a simple gravy dressing.  Being slow cooked with the onion soup and dip packet adds a familiar taste to a traditional dish. Enjoy minimal preparation time with maximum taste.  This dish feeds four people, and can be refrigerated up to four days.

  • 20 ounces bottle of Coca-Cola
  • 1 packet of Lipton Onion Soup and Dip Mix
  • 2 cups of carrots


Directions:

  1. Place 3 pound beef roast at the bottom the crock pot
