I make my Roast Beef different ways depending on what Elmer or I would like or what hits my mood when I go to make it.  So here are a couple of the recipes I make.  The first one is the one I made last Sunday, it comes from Betty Crocker.

Pot Roast In Foil

4-pound pot beef
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) cream of mushroom soup or you can use homemade mushroom soup
Bouillon - Onion Mix (recipe bellow)
8 small potatoes
8 medium carrots, cut crosswise into halves
2 Tablespoon water

Place piece of foil, 30 X 18 inches, in ungreased pan, 13 X 9 X 2 inches.  Place beef in pan.  Mix soup and Bouillon-Onion Mix (below); spread over beef.  Add vegetables, sprinkle with water.  Fold foil over and seal.  Cook in oven at 300 degrees for 4 hours.  Skim fat from gravy; serve gravy with beef.

Bouillon-Onion Mix

Mix 1/4 cup instant minced onion, 2 tablespoons instant beef bouillon and 1/2 teaspoon onion powder.  (To make soup, stir mix into 4 cups boiling water, reduce heat.  Cover, simmer for 5 minutes).

NOTE: 1 package ( 1 3/8 ounces) onion soup mix can be substituted for the Bouillon-Onion Mix.

Pot Roast Recipe II

2 pound roast or larger
1 Tablespoon A-1 sauce
1 envelops Lipton Onion soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup (or homemade)

Place roast on large enough heavy duty foil to cover and seal.  On top of meat put A - 1 sauce (more if needed) to cover.  Add onion soup and mushroom soup.  Pull up foil and seal.  Bake at 250 degrees for 4 to 5 hours.  Do not salt.

There's nothing like a tasty pot roast with carrots and potatoes! Thanks, Anna!
I've done small roasts in the crockpot with nice results. It's especially handy in the Summer as the kitchen doesn't get so hot.

Hi littlemancat,

I cook mine in the crockpot and get nice results like you. I will see that Anna gets your message.

Hi Angela,

I didn't think you could make a horrible pot roast. Give this a try. Do you have a crock pot? I can give you my recipe for the crock pot.

Hope you have a nice day, too,
