Now, on to Lynne’s pot roast. Yum.
- 1 good sized beef roast (chuck, shoulder, whatever is on sale) FROZEN - IMPORTANT
- 2 envelopes onion soup mix
- 2 cans cream of mushroom soup mix
- Potatoes - peeled and cut up into about 8 pieces each - amount depends on how much you think your family will eat - I used to do about 4 so I had planned leftovers since it was just Dave and I
- Carrots - I would peel and halve a 2 pound bag cause Dave LOVES carrots in this
- Onions - 3 good size ones peeled and cut into quarters
- The amount of all the veggies is based on what your family likes.
- The most important thing is that your roast be frozen. I know it sounds crazy, but it really works.
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
- Put the roast in a large pan and surround it with the veggies. I never salted or peppered as the soup mixes added plenty of flavor. Mix the two kinds of soup mix with about 1 soup can of water. Pour this all over the meat and veggies. Cover tightly with foil. Place in the oven and then let it cook for about 6 hours.
- I tried this a couple of times in the crockpot, but it came out too watery. You may have more luck doing it that way possibly.
