  • I am making a pot roast myself tonite. Here is how I make it-

    Season with pepper and garlic powder. Place in the bottom of a roasting pan, surround with whatever veggies you want. Mix together in bowl- 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can tomato soup, half a can of water, and a pack of Lypton's onion soup mix. Pour over roast and veggies. Bake at 350 for one hour and then turn the oven down to 325 and bake for another 2-2.5 hrs or until fork tender. Check every 30-45 mins- add more water as needed.

    This makes a yummy- yankee style pot roast.

  • i cooked on last night, it it was not as tender as i wanted it to be. I put mine in the crock pot w/ oniond gralic & carrots. Added a jar of gravy, a can of beer (or soda). And let it sit all day. It may have ben the cut of meat i used...don't know. Oh yeah, i seered it first. Supposed to lock in the juices making it more tender. Here is Paula Dean's recipe...i want ot make hers next.

  • I use Adolphs Meat Tenderizer. Once it thaws, sprinkle the tenderizer on it, get a fork and poke it all over to make sure the tenderizer is in. I cut up fresh garlic (a whole one), 5 carrots, 5 celery stalks, an onion, a green pepper and put it all into a deep casseroll dish. Then I put liptons onion soup mix on top of all of it. Cover and cook it for about an hour or 2. Its delish!! Good Luck

  • the key to making your roast tender and juicy on the inside is browning the outside. it's really a step you should NOT forget to do! season the outside of it, and then sear it in a hot skillet- just until you no longer see pink on the outside. then stick it in the crock pot or put it in the oven in a roasting pan and cook as usual.
