    I modified the recipe for 4 servings. I used a beef chuck roast and I seasoned it with salt, pepper, garlic powder and basil and then breaded the roast with flour. I sautéed a little bit of white onion and some whole garlic cloves in olive oil. I transferred the onion and garlic to a crock pot and browned the roast in the remaining oil. I put the roast on top on the onion and garlic and added a few red potatoes (cut in half) and a few handfuls of baby carrots. I topped it off with the pasta sauce of my choice (used a chunky sauce) and a small can of sliced black olives and cooked in the crock pot for 4 hours. It was a delicious meal! My husband even liked it and he does not like to eat pot roast. Will definitely make again!
