Savory Pot Roast

Easy! Easy! Easy! Add the word "Delicious" and you've described this recipe. The recipe is so old - I have no idea where it came from. Served it at a small dinner party for 6 people. Served with a nice Merlot. It was a huge it! AND it's Easy! Easy! Easy! I was able to work around the house while it was simmering away on the stove. Did I mention it was Easy?

    This is the roast recipe I've used for years and years. I believe I originally got the recipe from a Campbell's Soup ad. I like to make this recipe using Cream of Mushroom Soup with Roasted Garlic. I also usually sprinkle the roast with garlic salt before browning it, and sometimes add 1 packet of Ranch Dressing mix, about 2T of red wine vinegar, or 2 - 3 drops of pepper sauce (like Cholula) to the soup mixture. It's a wonderfully tasty recipe for roast beef. Thanks for posting!

    The family loved it. They couldn't believe that a roast cooked on the stovetop could be so tender! I used chicken stock for the water and seasoned the roast with a steak seasoning before searing. Finished off the gravy with some worcestershire. Yummy! Thanks for a delicious and simple recipe.

    This was pretty good. I usually slow cook my roast in a crock pot, but I wanted to serve roast for an impromptu family dinner, and didn't have all day to let it cook. I am impressed with how easy it was, but the roast was a little dry, and not as tender as it usually is when I do it in the crock pot, BUT I may not have used a very good cut of beef. I liked the gravy, and it was easy to make. All in all a great recipe. I'm sure I will use it again. Thanks!

    This is Easy! And very delicious. We wanted pot roast today and I didn't feel like doing it my usual, time-consuming, way. I found Kris' recipe and we had a wonderful dinner tonight. I made her recipe as is, adding a couple more potatoes and carrots and a package of fresh wild mushrooms. The soup mixture made a great gravy without me having to add the flour/water mixture at the end. Wonderful, we all loved it! Thanks Kris, this is definately a keeper!
