Fruit marinated Pot Roast with Rice and Biscuits

Ok, I’m back, feeling more rested, but the back still doesn’t like me, and that’s ok, I’ll fix that in thirty minutes.

With that said, We have a favorite method of mine during the winter! Crockpot! I figure by the time winter is done, I may break this one, and have to purchase a new crockpot. I think I go through these like my kids go through cereal and milk. It easy to use, and no fuss once you get everything together.

This week, I made pot roast in the crockpot. I change up the marinade to do different flavors, and I love buying the pre marinade packages at the store and adding to it to make the roast better than what it would have been.

Today, I decided to use some of my fruit that I noticed was getting a little bruised, but was still good. Kicker to tis recipe? I made this the night before, and cooked it in the crockpot today. Took maybe 15 minutes to throw together, and walk away…..

Fruit Marinated Pot Roast with Rice and Biscuits

1 3-5 pound boneless chuck roast
3 small oranges, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 cup pineapple orange juice
1 cup Malibu rum
1 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp. soy sauce
2 cups water

Combine the ingredients in a bowl. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours. The longer, the better. I cooked mine on low all night, checking on it occasionally to make sure I didn’t burn the meat, and added 2 more cups of water before bed.

Once done, I turned it to the option of ‘keeping warm’, and took some the juices out of the crockpot, and poured them into a pan. I began to make a gravy for the meat with 4 tbsp. flour and 1 tbsp. butter.

In the meantime, I began my rice and biscuits. The kids love basmati rice over long grain, but either works. Cook according to directions, and add beef bouillon cube and/or powder to the rice while it cooks. Bake your biscuits according to the directions as well. I use Pillsbury honey flavored biscuits or Southern Style.

You have cooked your dinner in less than 30-45 minutes. I made corn to go with the dinner as well, because you need veggies!

As promised, two of my recipes that I love to use, change up, or just make when it’s cold outside. I hope you enjoy both!
