There is an old story about a father who asks his three daughters how much they love him. There are several versions, but it goes something like this: One answers, “As I love my life.”. The next answers, “Better than anything in the world.”. The third answers (I really like this girl), “as meat loves salt.”. He doesn’t like the answer of the third daughter, and throws her out. After a series of events, she serves her father a meal in disguise. She makes sure none of the meat has any salt. He complains that the food tastes awful and inquires what is the matter with the meat? She replies, it has not been salted. He then begins to cry, because for the first time, he understands that the third daughter loved him best. She then reveals herself, and they are happily reunited.
That girls knows her food. She is not kidding. Meat does love salt. Especially beef. And this recipe for pot roast has just the right amount of salt and seasonings. Crock pot meals are so nice aren’t they? When I walk in the door after a busy day to the smell of something in the slow cooker, it is such a relief. (I love my crockpot and this is the one that I love!)
This is the type of meal you can count on to satisfy. Better than a Snicker’s bar. Although that would make a great dessert if you are in a hurry. This terrific recipe from You’re Too Crafty is a busy day lifesaver.
Show your family you love them like meat loves salt by making this easy 5 ingredient pot roast. They will understand when they taste it.
