0 Degrees F- Time For Comfort Food, Pot Roast!







After seeing the weather report for today, we decided having the oven on for 3- 3-1/2 hrs. wouldn't feel too bad! My version of Beef Chuck roast pot roast coming up!
1. Lay a large piece of heavy duty aluminum foil flat, enough to cover and wrap your roast easily, without any air holes.
2. Spread seasonings (I use Mrs. Dash Original, and Lawrys seasoned salt!) onto alum foil. Lay beef roast onto that, then season with same, until coated.
3. Put one can of cream of something soup( I used celery) spread over top of roast. Then sprinkle 1 envelope of dry brown gravy mix over all.
4. Top with thin sliced onion strips (about half-cup), and wrap carefully but so it will seal without leaks. Place in pan.
5. Bake for 3-1/2 hrs at 300- 320 F .
6. Remove from oven, and open one end of wrap- enough to pour out gravy you just made! Pour into a pan, and thicken (with flour mixed with cold water)if needed.
7. This should be falling apart tender, with great flavor. Serve with potatoes, pasta, or rice!
Today, we're having that with small yukon gold potatoes, seasoned with garlic and rosemary, along with some decent French style bread. Fudge browies for dessert- I was lazy today!

Dana said...

Thanks Buf! I'm on my way to the market right now and I now know what's for dinner tonight!

HAR said...

It may take me a week or so but I am SO making this recipe!

Mel said...

That doesn't seem lazy to me!

Dana said...

Just wanted to let you know the meal was a HUGE success! My husband said it was the best roast he had ever eaten and my son actually ate potatoes that weren't fried! Of course he asked if those were oine needles I was putting on them (fresh rosemary).

Odat said...

Wow...that sounds really easy for something sooooo good! And btw, thanks for sending the cold air here....it's 14 degrees this morning...wind chill: below zero.
Peace

dana- Glad it turned out so well! Simple, isn't it?
har- Great meal on a cold winters' day!
mel- The prep before oven is about 10 minutes! When you open it, it's ready to eat..
odat- I couldn't have sent it, 'cause it's still here!

Brilliant!

I was a little lazy too, made chicken parmesan in the crockpot. I like having your recipe and will give you mine which you might want to use when it's too hot to run the oven.

Dip chicken breasts in beaten egg and then seasoned bread crumbs; brown in skillet. Place breasts in crock pot, pour 14 oz spaghetti sauce over top and cook on low for 4-6 hours (you might want to add about 1/4 cup water too). About 15 minutes before serving, cover with mozzarella and parmesan cheese; recover and let melt.

We had this with pasta and salad and garlic breat and then cherry cake for dessert.

doggybloggy said...

what a great gravy trick but what about the greasy factor?

In_spired said...

Yum, yum!!

Great looking food!!

Kayla said...

looks like it makes a good gravy on the roast...I put Lipton onion dry mix on my roast, and add water and flour to make gravy.
I'll try your way next time!

Akelamalu said...

Ooooh I love pot roast!

buffalodickdy said...

annie- Make this roast exactly as I wrote, only put in a crock pot for 8 hrs. and the results are identical! Chix Parmesean sounds pretty good right now....
marmie- Tonight is cheesy broccoli soup, with remaining bread...
DogB- You can skim some off, but a certain amount doesn't hurt flavor.. Next day, just remove leftover gravy from fridge and take the hardened fat right off.
in_spired- Actually tasted better than it looked!
Kayla- This recipe was based off Liptons' recipe- but I modified it, as we don't like dried onion bits in the gravy!
Ake- Who wouldn't on a cold day? :)

Sorry, the only thing that comes to mind when you say, "comfort food" is pizza.

I don't know what my problem is.
