  1. 1 good sized beef roast (chuck, shoulder, whatever is on sale) FROZEN - IMPORTANT
  2. 2 envelopes onion soup mix
  3. 2 cans cream of mushroom soup mix
  4. 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
  5. Carrots - I would peel and halve a 2 pound bag cause Dave LOVES carrots in this
  6. Onions - 3 good size ones peeled and cut into quarters
  7. The amount of all the veggies is based on what your family likes.
  8. The most important thing is that your roast be frozen. I know it sounds crazy, but it really works.
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. 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.
  1. 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.

  1. I’m always looking for new recipes that are simple, so thanks so much for sharing this one! Hugs and Happy Saturday! #getsocial17 RO

  2. I do want to try this in my crockpot, but maybe with the roast thawed so it’s not so watery?

    I have two of your books, haven’t read them yet, but I enjoy your newsletters. Today though I’m visiting from the Get Social Blog Hop – http://beasbooknook.blogspot.com/

    • It never hurts to give it a try in the crock pot.

      Thanks for being a subscriber and I hope you love them when you read them.

  3. Sounds easy enough. I haven’t made pot roast in like 2 decades (vegetarian now) but good to know 🙂

    A quick heads up on the #GetSocial17 event– I had a blip with the sign up linky (it didn’t request email info from anyone so I couldn’t send yall the kick off post ) so stopping by with the link which has the official linky list everyone can use to visit all the blogs 🙂 Hope you meet some fun new friends during the event! Thanks so much for joining in!
