Fall Pot Roast with Turnips and Butternut Squash

Submitted by: XHOOSIERLOSER

Introduction

I used a small venison roast, which has less fat and calories than beef, but most folks won't have a freezer stocked with deer meat. The crock pot makes this easy and it smells and tastes great! I wouldn't have thought that the turnips and squash would be a good combination, but my DH suggested it, and it was very good!

    2 c. (1 med.) butternut squash, peeled and seeded, sliced into thin wedges
    1 c. beef broth with 1 tsp. soy sauce or your choice of other flavorings - you could use a bit of wine as well

Pat the meat dry and rub all over with seasoning of your choice - I used a Roast Beef Seasoning from Penzeys'.

Brown on all sides in a bit of olive oil over med-high heat.

Place carrots and turnips in the bottom of the crock pot, place roast on top and cover with the squash.

Pour liquid over the top. Cook on low 8 or more hours, or on high 5 - 6 hours.
