It doesn't get any easier. I still savor the childhood memories of coming back from church to the mouth-watering smell of the onion soup mix mixed with beef juice. Yum.


  1. Select any type of beef roast. Sprinkle it with one package of dry onion soup mix. No other seasoning is needed. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake in 300 degree oven for 3 hours.

Only 2 ingredients for this simple recipe, but was it ever so tasty!! I also wrapped mine in aluminum foil and placed it on a pan for baking. As TeresaS says, the drippings ARE to die for. I will add this recipe to my Encore Cookbook. Made for Best of 2011 Cookbook Official Game

This is an easy, delicious recipe! I was skeptical at first because I do not usually cook with soup mixes, but it was very flavorful and tender. I used a 2.5 lb. roast and roasted it with cut up potatoes, carrots, and whole red and golden beets-delicious, especially since my ingredients, including the roast were from local farms. I made this for Best of 2010 Tag-thanks for a great recipe!

What a delicious roast. I do have to admit that my head hurts. I stopped using it after I retired. I'm a recipe follower. So with that in mind I had a little under 2 lb round tip roast that I got on sale. I used Lipton beefy onion soup mix. I wrapped in up in regular foil and put it in a pyrex pan. Good thing because it does drip. The drippings are to die for. I saved some for tomorrows dinner which is going to be french dips. My roast took 2 1/4 hrs to cook perfectly. This is so darn easy that it's should be illegal. I just had to make this after seeing the photo and review by Nimz. Boy was I not disappointed. This is going in my best of 2010 cookbook. Thanks for posting. :)
