This is actually a recipe I've used for almost 8 years--and my mother has used 15 years before that. Its based around this little seasoning called "TexJoy." Its a fabulous "steak" seasoning--but I used it for everything from steaks to burgers to pot roasts.

This seasoning can't be found in stores anymore, so my mother orders a BATCH from the company, then disperses them to the family. I can't imagine living without it.

And today I'm going to show you a recipe for a pot-roast using this seasoning--and the flavor can't be beat!


3 to 4 lbs beef pot roast/bottom round roast
1/4 cup TexJoy seasoning (this is all by "eye" so this measurement is just estimating)
3 cups water (this is also an estimation--it depends on size of roast)

Place the roast in a 5-quart slow cooker. Fill water up until 2/3 of roast is covered. Sprinkle roast and water with TexJoy until the whole cooker as a thin layer of seasoning on top.

Cook for 6 to 8 hours on low. Make sure you don't remove the lid [you will loose at least 30 minutes of cooking time]!

Remove roast and let it rest 5 minutes until serving.

The longer it cooks--the more tender meat will be. Keep the layer of fat on the roast that usually comes with it from the meat department. It will be completely dissolved by the end of the cooking time, and the little that is left will drip right off.

Well that's just mean. You share a recipe, centered around a seasoning, that we can't even find in stores anymore?? Mean! This looks pretty delicious though!

Thanks for the post. Recipe looks great. And yes - TexJoy is a great seasoning. They have steak seasonings, cajun seasonings and BBQ spice rubs and coffee, too. You can buy online at TexJoy is sold in stores mostly between Houston, TX and Lafayette, LA. Some Dallas area stores and in between. But you can find TexJoy in ALL Academy Sports + Outdoor stores. And you can even buy it at any Jason's Deli restaurants. So don't get too frustrated - it's out there!

TexJoy Steak Seasoning can't be found in stores anymore? Now it's time to panic. Being from Orange, TX I thought it was one of the basic staples of life. Now living in North Carolina I have to get it on-line or make a trip to Texas to renew our supply. Thank goodness for being able to order on-line; we were able to get it while we were living in Seattle.
