Delicious pot roast recipe and so easy to make. I browned the roast before baking, as suggested by another reviewer, used homemade onion soup mix recipe #110331, and a combination of water, beef broth and potato water saved from making mashed potatoes a few days ago. Served with thick slices of homestyle bread and butter to mop up the gravy. Added this excellent recipe to my favorite recipes binder.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pot roast in 375 degree Fahrenheit oven in a covered baking pan with Worcestershire, onion soup mix and onion with enough water to cover for 3 hours.
  2. Add cut up carrots and potatoes (peeled and cut in thirds top to bottom) so you have points sticking up in pan.
  3. Cover and cook 1/2 hour.
  4. Take out and shake soy sauce over potatoes.
  5. Dust lightly with paprika.
  6. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes until potatoes are tender but browned.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley.
