Pot Roast Made Super Easy

All, I’ve never been really successful at making pot roast, so I looked up recipes on the Interwebs and decided that it really couldn’t be that hard.

So, I found some and modified a bunch to make my own recipe

First of all, unless you have a method down already, roast any vegetables separately.  There are too many variations in ovens, baking pans, roasting heats, and veggie size to make it worth while to try and add a pot roast to that mix and hope for anything good to turn out – unless you already have your groove on.

So here it is:
1 Pot Roast – 3-4 lbs
2-3 TBSP peanut oil
1 medium white onion, chopped
1/2 packet liptons dried onion soup mix
1-2 regular sized cans of cream of mushroom soup (low salt if possible)
1/2 lb or so of mushrooms, chopped or sliced – fresh, not canned – unless you are lazy or in a real hurry
1/2 Cup Red Wine – I used Barbera, but any big red Cab would do well too
1/2 head of garlic – peeled

.5 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
1. Add oil to 5 qt or so Dutch Oven – burner on high, Brown meat on all sides. I did about 5 min per side
2. Add chopped onion and mushrooms – cook and stir for 3-5 minutes on high. Add 1/4 C water if things are sticking to the pot
3. Depending on your love of mushrooms, add 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. Add two cans if you love gravy and mushrooms
4. Add wine, pour a glass for yourself to make sure it’s good wine
5. Add 1/2 packet of Liptons dried onion soup mix – stir in well – use less if you don’t like salt, or if you didn’t use a low salt version of the cream of mushroom soup.
6. Put peeled garlic cloves in – use more if you like garlic, less if you don’t
7. Put in oven for 3.5 hours – check at hourly to make sure that there is plenty of liquid/gravy. Fresh mushrooms tend to have a lot of water, so you should be fine if you added them. If not, add 1/4 – 1/2C water or broth.
8. After the second hour of cooking, consider starting your roasted vegetables or potatoes. I just throw 4-5 potatoes in foil into the oven with the pot roast – after about 1-1.5 hours potatoes are done.
9. Break up with fork and serve! Put a little sour cream on top and veggies on the side
