Dried Onions with Pot Roast

1 chuck or other roast
1 quart homemade beef broth
2 or 3 handfuls dried onions
1 or 2 handfuls diced dry celery
1 or 2 handfuls  summer squash slices
salt and pepper
Put all ingredients in crock pot. Start on high then turn to lower temperature and let cook.
Turn meat part way through. Length of cooking time depends on thickness of roast.
I haven’t cooked with the dried carrots or potatoes. I will let you know when I do.
I have used vegetable powder in some soups or broths and it tends to thicken  it some. It
could be added to the pot roast broth if desired.


Most of the onions were cut in slices when they were dried. So, now when I want to make hamburgers I will often grab a handful of dried onions and a pair of scissors to cut the onions in small pieces. If your meat seem quite dry you might want to add a little milk or an  egg to the meat along with the dry onions and other seasoning.

There is often enough moisture in the meat to rehydrate the onions if you allow a few minutes to sit before cooking. I had a package of frozen ground meat and when it thawed there was possibly a tablespoon or two of liquid. I cut into the liquid and it was great.

Experiment with using dried onions. If you have something super let us know so we can share with others! Well, it doesn’t have to be super. Well, if it is good we’ll be happy!

New ideas can be contagious!
