This came from one of my aunts. It is so simple, and nobody will know that you used cranberry juice.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 lbs chuck roast
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 (16 ounce) bottle cranberry juice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Put roast in a pan that you can cover. Pour the juice in (enough to come up about 3/4 of the roast).
  3. Sprinkle with onion soup mix.
  4. Cover tightly with lid or aluminum foil.
  5. Bake at 250 degrees for about 5 hours.
  6. If you want to add vegetables, do so the last hour or so.
  7. The juices can be thickened to make a gravy (use whatever method you choose).
