The single most convenient piece of equipment in the kitchen, barring the obvious like the sink and refrigerator. This little baby is the working person's blessing. Here's a recipe.

Clampe's Pot Roast

Piece of roast, my favorite is the eye roast
TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fresh Rosemary (dried will do)
3 cloves garlic
1/2 pound carrots
3-4 medium sized red skin taters
One Large Onion
small package mushrooms
can beef stock
1/2 cup red wine (not necessary, but nummy)

Mince your garlic and place it a hot saucepan with the olive oil, rosemary, crushed black pepper and salt. Be careful not to let the garlic get brown. Once you can smell the garlic cooking, place the roast in the pan and sear all sides until it is a nice brown. Remove from heat.

Place you cut vegetables in the crock pot, with the can of beef stock, wine, some more rosemary, salt and pepper. Put the roast and everything else in the sauce pan over top the whole deal. Cover and let cook at low for a long time.

Typically, I prepare everything the night before, leave the pot in the fridge, and then just put it on when I get up in the morning. By the time dinner rolls around, it's perfect.
