Sunday Dinner Pot Roast
Remember walking into the house on Sunday after church and smelling the aroma of that chuck roast in the oven. Walter and I had been married about 3 months and I found this recipe in the Progressive Farmer cookbook. He loved its fall apart goodness and those potatoes and carrots saturated in gravy as they roast. Here are the step by step never fail directions.
Place boneless chuck roast in oven proof heavy Dutch oven with tight fitting lid. Sprinkle one package of Lipton onion soup mix over roast-this is all of the salt for the meat you will need. Spoon one can cream of mushroom soup over this. Add one soup can water over all. Bake for 3 hours at 350 degrees. During last hour of roasting, add quartered potatoes and sliced carrots around roast. If water is low add more. Salt and pepper carrots and potatoes. At the end of three hours, you will have the most delicious tender roast with yummy potatoes and carrots.
