The best Roast & Carrots ever! Thanks Mom!

This is how my mom cooks a roast - and it's the very best I've ever had. Ever. It's that good.

And it is SO ridiculously easy.

Take your roast and coat it on all sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder (not garlic salt).

Sear it in a pan on both sides until you get some browning action.

Cover it with 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce and enough water to cover it. Keep adding water as needed while you cook. This will vary based on how long you cook your roast.

Cook it - on low/med low for at least 4 or 5 hours. You can cook this roast ALL day. You can cook it in a crockpot, on the stove or in the oven. It always comes out great!

I cooked mine for about 6 or 7 hours - and this is how it comes out of the pot. Completely falling apart. You can use the pan juices to make a yummy gravy too. Just remove the liquid, make a rue out of butter and flour, add the juices back in and whisk in milk. Easy!

When you're about an hour away from eating it, throw in some carrots. Usually I put potatoes in too but I didn't buy any this time (and note - those would need longer to cook).

They absorb the cooking juice - SOOO GOOD!

There you have it - the best roast ever!
