My Favorite Pot Roast



We had a cold beginning to the first week of Spring, but then it warmed up.

I was wanting a comforting meal, and had a chuck roast in the freezer from before meat prices started to skyrocket, and fixed it.  Saturday was so nice and I worked in my backyard, side yard, and front yard.  It takes awhile to clean up from winter, and it took me all day.  I was thankful that I had leftovers to warm up with this delicious pot roast.


Yield: I get about 5 servings

My Favorite Pot Roast

My Favorite Pot Roast

This is my favorite way to fix pot roast, and I hope you'll give it a try. This makes it's own gravy and the meat is so tender.

Ingredients

  • Around a 3 lb. chuck roast
  • 1 packet of dry onion soup mix
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 can of water from the soup can
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 3 large potatoes, cut up
  • 3 large carrots, cut up

Instructions

  1. Season the chuck roast with some pepper. I don't salt it because of the salt in the soups.
  2. Brown the chuck roast in a little bit of hot oil. I have a slow cooker that can heat on top of the stove. If you don't, you may want to forego the browning.
  3. Mix the dry onion soup, the cream of mushroom soup, and the 1/2 can of water together in a small bowl. Pour this onto the chuck roast.
  4. Add the stalk of celery (I leave this in large pieces), the carrots and the potatoes to the pot. (See NOTE)
  5. Cover with the lid and cook on low for around 8 hours.
  6. Remove the celery, and then dish up a comforting meal.

Notes

I often use a dutch oven and use my oven as a "slow cooker" by turning the heat to about 225 degrees.

Also, If you don't like your carrots and potatoes to be too mushy, add those towards the last 2-3 hours, if you have the time.


Thank you for your visit!  xo

  1. Post Roast is always an excellent idea, Kitty. I love comfort food such as this. The perfect food to eat after a good cleanout in the garden.

  2. Yum Kitty, delicious cold weather comfort food! I love your pretty basket and sweet bunny and cabbage salt and pepper shakers. I've been busy with garden clean up and putting out mulch around the Potting Shed. I still have two more sides to go. Happy Monday. ♥

  4. We are very cold today and I have plans for a beef stew and fresh biscuits. Like you we have a few things in the freezer from before the crazy prices really started.

  6. As it so happens, I have promised a pot roast in the slow cooker to my son and grands on Wednesday. I will be trying your recipe. PW's recipe is a favorite, but it takes more attention so yours makes better sense on a busy day. Thanks!

  8. That looks great. Our week was the reverse of yours - warm to start last week, then cold (even blowing snow) on the weekend. Typical roller coaster March. Pot roast is super food, in my book, and yours looks yummy.

  9. A pot roast is the perfect comfort food for a chilly day. It looks delicious Kitty. Oh yes, it does take a while to clean up after winter. I'm sure you were a bit tired after your busy day. Hope you have a grand week........

  10. Mmm, your pot roast looks so good! Our weather is not very warm and tomorrow, we are having another snow storm. Surely, that will be the last of the white stuff for this year. Yard work on PEI usually doesn't get started until the end of April or first of May. But we know warm weather is coming eventually. Have a wonderful, week, dear Kitty. Don't you just love springtime? Hugs..Sandi

  11. Oh WOW! This is my most favorite meal. I would have gladly helped you clean your yard and then enjoyed a few bites of this deliciousness with you. =) Makes my mouth water. Hoping your weather warms up and stays that way! Take it easy. XO

  12. Must be something about the cool weather cuz we did a roast this past weekend too. (Or could be after a Lenten Friday the taste buds crave beef. Who knows, haha, but it is truly the ultimate comfort food.

    It snowed here near us 4 inches and has been super cold - so had to bring in the big pansies hubs bought when it was warm for the front covered porch. Hopefully soon it will warm up. Those teaser days sure were nice but the birds and early blooming plants are very confused.

  13. We are also having very cold weather here Kitty. This is the perfect meal to warm you up. Yes, it's that time of year for gardening and cleaning up all the dead leaves from the winter and even though it feels like winter here. LOL. I hope you have a nice week Kitty.

  15. That looks sooo good, Kitty!

    We also had a blast of frigid temperatures here. I thought my face was going to freeze off when I checked my mail this afternoon. LOL. Here's hoping the temperatures will warm up again soon.

  16. That dish looks delicious Kitty. YES, that is one of our favorites around my home. We use deer meat a lot though and it makes a wonderful stew or I use the hams for pot roast. Today has been a beautiful day but we've sure had some rain. I hope your week is truly a blessing to you. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  17. Oh, how wonderful! I have one specific way of making my pot roast that my family loves, but my! I may have to try this way, too! It sounds amazing! I'm glad your weather has been warm enough to get out and work in the yard. It is still quite chilly here, and I think it is going to get really cold again this weekend. But, we have enjoyed some spring days, too. May God bless you today, sweet friend!

  22. Mmm...that looks so good, Kitty! I was just thinking about pot roast. It was always such a warm comfort food when I was a child. I've never made it on my own though. Perhaps it's time I tried! Thanks for sharing!!
