Waanda's Tender and Easy Roast
I found this recipe on Chets website this morning....Yummmmm!
Chet, even though most everything I see says you should thaw meat before preparing, I have been preparing my roast this way for many years -- the whole family really
likes it. I like to use rump roast -- but have also done eye of round roast and occasionally chuck roast for this EASY recipe.
One frozen roast (rump roast is my preferred type)
3 small cans of cream of mushroom soup
2 envelopes of dried onion soup mix
On Saturday night before I go to bed, I put a frozen roast in my West Bend slow cooker on a low temperature. Mix the cream of mushroom soup and dried onion soup mix
together and pour it over the roast.
On Sunday morning, before I leave for church, I open 2 or 3 cans of whole white potatoes (depending on the number of people who will be eating lunch), drain the liquid off, and put the potatoes in the slow cooker with the roast -- trying to be sure they are all submerged in the gravy.
This makes a VERY tender roast as well as a delicious gravy. When we return from church, the house smells great and lunch is ready.
Note from Lucy: That sounds like too many cans of mushroom soup mix and dried onion soup mix. I am going to try it with 2 cans mushroom soup mix and one Lipton Onion/Mushroom soup mix. Usually, when I cook a roast in my slow cooker, I use 1 package of the onion/mushroom soup mix and it comes out good. I am going to give this a try, this Sunday, and I will give you a report..
Happy New Year Everyone! Tell me what you are hoping for in 2009.
