How I Met Your Mother Farewell Dinner: MacLaren's Pot Roast


The time has come for us to say farewell to Ted, Barney, Robin, Lillypad and Mashmallow. We've gone through weddings, births, deaths, break-ups, and plenty of other legen...wait for it... dary moments with this crew but tonight we watch and find out exactly how Ted met the mother of his two (bored out of their minds by now) children.

In celebration... and mourning... of the end of one of my favorite shows, here is a recipe in its honor. 


MacLaren's Pot Roast

Ingredients
1 3-5lb Pot Roast
4 Red Bliss Potatoes
1/2 Onion
6 cloves of garlic
Baby Carrots (about 2 handfuls)
Beef Stock
Bottle of Beer
Gravy Master
Salt & Pepper 
Slow Cooker


Preparation
Cut potatoes and onion into large cubes, place in the bottom of the slow cooker. 

Make sure the roast is completely thawed out and make 6 small slits in the top. Insert peeled garlic cloves into the slits. (you can see what I mean in the picture)
Add in 1/4 c of beef broth and 1/2 bottle of any beer (drink the rest, I won't judge).

Drizzle a little Gravy Master over the roast. 
Season with salt and pepper.

Cover and cook on low for 10 hours.
