Pot Roast in August... Who'da Thunk...
After the BB-Q Cook-off, I seem to lose all momentum for cooking...imagine that! I'm retyping an entire post as something wiped me clean when going to post it...Bastards! I type slow, and I hate doing anything that requires effort twice...
Pot Roast in August- odd, but it sounded good to me today! I have evolved a no fail recipe which someday, I hope you'll try!
1 Chuck roast 2-1/2 to 4 lbs.
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 packet of brown dry gravy mix
salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder- to your taste
Wrap completely in aluminum foil- no leaks allowed!
Roast in oven at 300F for 3-1/2 hrs., or slow cooker on low for 8hrs.
I used the crock pot, to avoid heating up the house in August! You will be rewarded with a moist, tender pot roast, in a ready to serve gravy.
Car issues today... buying company car, and getting BOB (Big Old Buick) a checkup! The Buick is a 1995 Roadmaster worth keeping... It has an LZ 350 fuel injected V-8, with dual exausts... Still can haul butt, and for an old girl, still looks pretty good! Enjoy your week-ends!
