  2. Do you think if I cut the roast and floured it and pre-browned it and then put it in the crockpot it would thicken the gravy?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Probably would thicken it some, Linda.

    • Linda, I haven’t made the Cajun Pot Roast yet, BUT I do use my slow cooker to make pot roast, and I flour my roast and brown it in a skillet first, and yes it makes wonderful gravy, nicely thickened..

  3. Is the tapioca pudding? If not where do I find it?

  4. Awesome recipe!!! So enjoy any kind of roast!! BTW, if anyone is looking for great beef to purchase – no hormones, no antibiotics, pasture-raised, from a 5 generation cattle ranching family operation, check out: jennerfamilybeef.com!!! We’ve been in business for 140+ years!

  5. I have never cooked with tapioca. Is this 1/4 cups already cooked or what? I would love to make this.

  6. Oh yum. And I still have some frozen okra.
