Mom's Beef Roast

Mom's Beef Roast created by canarygirl

My mom taught me how to make one of the best beef roasts ever! It's super easy to make, and really is wonderful. The roast will make a delicious gravy too--so make sure to make some mashed potatoes to go with it!

ingredients

directions

  • Place roast in roaster pan and sprinkle with vinegar, pepper, garlic powder and the onion soup mix.
  • Cover roaster and bake at 325º-350º for at least 3-4 hours.
  • The last hour of cooking I remove the lid to brown the roast a bit.
  • Then with the drippings, I make gravy (remove roast and cover with foil. Heat the drippings on the stove over fairly high heat. Add more water if necessary, and bring to a boil. Whisk in a slurry of flour and water (fairly thick) stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Adjust salt and pepper.).

    I always tend to overcook a roast beef. I used the cooking instructions from my package of eye round- it was 2 1/2 lbs. and I cooked it for an hour and a half at 325. It was probably done but I had it covered and it needed to brown a bit outside. I think I should have uncovered after 45 minutes...live and learn! Thanks for an easy recipe. I served it with green beans and recipe#30444 which was a nice match.

    We cooked this last week for lunchmeat. The DH loved it. It was flavorful, inexpensive and easy to make. We used the pan drippings to make the best onion dip for chips we've ever had. Just remove the drippings to a bowl, add sour cream to taste and enjoy. Thanks for posting!

    I was leary at first at adding the red wine vinegar but found out after it was made that the vinegar made the recipe all the more better. As we enjoy spicy meals, I added Montreal Steak spice instead of the pepper. I also added potatoes, onion, and carrots during the last hour of cooking and kept it covered until the last fifteen minutes. I reserved some of the drippings for gravy. This was by far an excellent meal, and so easy to prepare. Thanks.
