Carrot Onion Roast

I am starting to be discouraged this pregnancy. My cooking skills and motivation are LACKING. My creativeness is lacking big time... My belly and hiatal hernia dislike a lot of foods. With that being said it is hard for me to get creative and want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. 

Friday, I made a new roast. It wasn't totally cooked so we ended up eating it this weekend. The flavor is great and I am trying my hardest to remember exactly what I did!!!! :)  
Since my crockpot broke a few months back, I cooked this roast on the stove top!

The Ingredients:
Onion, sliced
garlic, minced
1 roast with bone in
carrots, cut not peeled
Olive Oil
beef broth

The Directions:
Start by adding Olive Oil, Onions and garlic. I only cooked the onions and garlic for a minute or two and then I added the roast and seared both sides of the meat. Add beef broth. Enough to cover the meat and scrap up the brown crisps on the bottom of the pan. Bring broth to a boil and then turn heat down to low. Add seasonings and carrots and cook for 6 hours on low. You may want to check the broth level and add more after a few hours. Right before serving add a splash of balsamic vinegar.

This roast was so yummy!!!! It had an amazing flavor, different from my other roasts!
