I finally found a way to cook roast that won't send my daughter into a hissy fit about eating it.

I had an enjoyable dinner of roast, broccoli & cauliflower, cooked carrots and rice with sauce from the roast. This was the first time I tried coating my roast before searing it, and I normally leave my roast whole when cooking it. I often cook my roasts in cream of mushroom soup because I like using the "gravy" over rice. I found that this recipe turned out very similar to my usual roast. I don't know if the coating made much difference. The roast did have the added flavors of the bay leaves and thyme. I like my sauce to be thicker, so I think I would have liked it better with the cream of mushroom soup and maybe one cup of beef broth. I did end up with a tender, tasty roast.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the flour, bread crumbs, & paprika in a large storage bag.
  2. Cut the roast into 2 inch thick strips, lengthwise (you should get around 6 strips).
  3. Lightly sprinkle the strips with salt & pepper.
  4. Place 2 strips at a time in the bag & shake to coat.
  5. Heat the oil in a frying pan & brown the strips on all sides, roughly 5 minutes total.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Lightly spray a roasting pan with cooking spray.
  8. Pour the broth into the frying pan & gently rub the bottom to remove any bits.
  9. Then add the broth, water, thyme, bay leaves, garlic, onions, & carrots to the roasting pan & stir.
  10. Next place the strips into the pan & cover with a lid.
  11. Cook in the oven for 2 hours, checking halfway through to make sure the liquid is not gone.
  12. After that time, remove the strips & bay leaves from the pan then add in the cream of mushroom & pepper, stir.
  13. Turn the heat down to 250, place the strips back in the pan & continue to cook for 1 hour.
  14. Serve hot over mashed potatoes.
  15. Note: I mashed the carrots & garlic into sauce to add flavor to the gravy.
