in the oven on 350 for an 1 1/2 with onions, potatoes, carrots, and I like cabbage in mine. Use a package of dry onion soup, with enough water to cover the bottom of the roaster, or 9x13 dish, cover and check after an hour. You can mix the soup and water, or sprinkle soup mix then pour water over it.

My kids are picky, so this is how I make the roast they love...

1 eye of round roast (somewhat pricey but can find on sale and worth it)
cream of chicken soup - enough to cover roast

You can dredge roast in flour and brown in a bit of oil, but not necessary. Put in crock pot and cover with cream of chicken soup. Cook on low about 8 hours. You can then remove the roast to slice, and the gravy is already done for you. (You can add kitchen bouquet gravy seasoning, but not necessary.) If you like more gravy, add more soup next time. So easy!

try pot roast, use'n the crockpot, its less mess and less time consum'ng.



or u can also use n inserter and use marmalaides o jellies which can give pleanty of flavor to ur roast.



here's what i used, but with turkey, i used 2-3 jars of Orange Marmalaide, Goya's Adobo, butter, Goya's Orange Flavored Mojo.



1) if fresh turkey o roast, keep turkey o roast n fridge til time of usage.

night b4, mix butter and adobo together.

2) nxt day, take meat out, wear'n gloves, rub meat w Adobo mixure all ovr, use'n inserter, inject meat w mojo flavoring, then rub marmalaide/jelly all over.

3) place meat n roast'n pan to proper temp (about 350-450) and cook as directed.

4) use meat thermometer to check for proper temp reaches 160 degrees inner temp.

5) allow roast to rest for 5-10 minutes b4 serv'ng.

6) slice meat to serv'vg size and enjoy.



FYI: im not a doctor o nutitionist, so please check w ur doctor for allergies,k. hope u like. if any questions please write to me to my facebook email o private email: ginsllygrl92@yahoo.com

I know someone else already posted about adding a can of Coke but I thought I would say it again because it really turns out so yummy!! This is what I do. I cut potatoes, onion, carrots and peel some garlic cloves. Then I salt and pepper my roast and sear it in a hot pan with some oil in it. Then I either put the roast in a roasting pan on a low heat in the oven or in the Crock pot on low. Then I mix in a bowl 1 Package Onion soup mix, 1 Can Coca Cola, and 1 can mushroom soup. You can add a little water if you need more liquid. This comes out so yummy the sauce thickens into a gravy. We always have to have rolls or something with this to dip into the gravy. Mmmmmm I think I may run to the store and buy a roast! Oh on low in the crock pot I start it in the morning around 9 or 10 am and by around 4 or 5 it's done =)

I learned from my mom (love her cooking) that you put your roast in the oven with a little water (you can even take it straight from the freezer--she claims this makes it more tender), cover, and forget about it. It comes out tender and makes a very good gravy!

I found a recipe some years ago for a beef roast that you could cook from frozen, which was good since I had forgotten to take one out and was planning on making one that night for supper. You take a frozen roast and put it in your slow cooker. Take two of the packages of powder brown gravy mix and mix in 1 1/2 cups of water. Put your slow cooker on low for 8-10 hours. You can also add potatoes about 2 hours before the roast is done. This is a very quick and easy roast, makes its own gravy, and it is so tender, you dont need a knife to cut it.

Oh wow do I have one for you and you put it in a crock pot even nicer



1 - 3 to 4 lb roast

1 can of cream of mushroom soup

1 can of tomato soup

1 onion chopped

2 cans of water ( from the soup cans )

1 bag of mini carrots or you could peel and slice the big ones

cook on high for 4 to 6 hrs

Then what i do is make mashed potatoes you will have gravy from the roast truley this is the only way I make mine because I turn it into beef veggy soup with left overs if there's any lol. Good Luck.

in a crock pot --- in bottom beef broth, then isprinkle with soya sauce, worchestireshire sauce, and montreal steak spice (peppery crust on top) throw LOTS of cloves of garlic (the flavour mellows the more it roasts and makes a really good flavour). last 2 hours of roasting i add baby carrots and fingerling potatoes (no chopping or peeling).

i like using onion soup mix occasionally too. but its alot of salt.but above is my favourite.

ooooh i think i'll have it for christmas eve. you've got me thinking.

cover with a pack of onion soup mix, wrap it in tin foil. Bake at 350 for 4 hours or 300 for 6.

if you have a crock pot the best thing to do is put some onions in the bottom add some potatoes cut in to wedges then put some cut up carrots and your roast goes on top season with a little garlic some salt a little chilli powder and sage basically anything that appeals to you put a can of cream of mushroom soup and some water and a little barbaque sauce stir and mix pour over the top cook for 8 hours and walla great tastinga full meal ready to eat. or you could do the same thing in the oven but only cook at 21/2 hours not as tender but still good

I use my crockpot, mix a can of cream of mushroom soup, a packet of onion soup, a packet of italian dressing and a can of coke, pepsi or dr pepper (whatever I have on hand) and pour it over my meat and veggies. Cook all day on low and it falls apart. The acid in the soda breaks down the grisle and fat in the meat.

Cooking bag, less mess. I have done the crockpot one and it doesn't seem to be as tender, I use the crockpot version when I'm doing a french dip. Preheat oven to 325 or 350 whichever the directions say on cooking bag box. I stab my roast a couple times with a fork, all over. Spread a light layer of mustard, place in bag, season with salt pepper, and garlic powder. Pour 1 package of dried french onion soup, couple of dashes of Worcestershire, put water in till it's half way up the roast. You can add the carrots, potatoes, more onion, or celery. Cook for 3 hours for a smaller roast.

Try a can of cream of mushroom soup in the crockpot. The juices of the meat mixing with the soup is SO good. I also put carrots, celery, and potatoes.

not sure about the slow cooker business BUT here in australia we cook our roasts on 180 degree celcius for 25 minutes for every kilo of meat and 40 minutes if it has a bone in it. If that was a roast beef try this for a coating we love it. 1/2 cup brown granulated sugar and 1/4 cup of ground pepper - mix 2getha and thoroughly coat the joint of meat or the cut which ever you have and cook away to the above directions per kilo of meat.

I love to put mine in the crockpot all day...I make it several ways... I either through a packet over onion soup mix over it... whatever seasonings I am in the mood for... or a jar of salsa... and the next day I shred it up and make tacos or burritos out of the left overs... Good luck.. :)

Oh.. I also do this with chicken breasts... They are both a great hit at dinner time...

put it in a slow cooker. it is so tender that it falls apart and if u cook it on low for about 6 hours, i fand that that is the best. onions, carrots, celery, and potatoes taste great if you put them in there to cook with it
