3-4 pound shoulder roast
Sprinkle roast with salt. Heat oil and brown roast. Add garlic and onion powder towards end of browning stage. Place in crockpot for 3-4 hours on high. Cut roast in quarters. Will take longer if roast is large. Use drippings for gravy.
Gravy: 4 T of butter, 4 T of flour. Melt butter in pan and add in flour, stirring well. When flour is lightly browned, add a cup of roast drippings and 2 cups of hot water, stirring continuously. Bring to a boil, thicken, and simmer for ten minutes.
