Falling-Apart Beef Roast for Busy Days

This is a recipe I found on Food.com, and I knew I had to try it when I saw it had almost 150 reviews and was rated at five stars!  Yes, all the ingredients (except the roast itself) come out of a can or a box, but you would never guess it from the taste of the finished product.  This is s great supper for when you’re home, but busy.  I cooked it yesterday because I was supposed to be taking it easy after a myelogram, and this is so quick I could throw it together while the movie I was watching was paused and the dogs were outside for a potty break.  Add some canned or frozen veggies, and potatoes that you threw in for the last hour to bake alongside the roast, and it’s a meal fit for company.

3 1/2 – 5 pound beef roast (whatever’s on sale this week)

2 small jars or one large jar of beef gravy

1 can sliced mushrooms (small or large can depending on your preference)

1 envelope onion soup mix

1/2 cup pre-made Italian dressing

Mix everything up, pour it over the roast, and cook (covered) at 300 degress for 4-5 hours depending on the size of the roast.

Delicious, and melt-in-your-mouth tender.

  1. Here’s a different, even easier one. Salt and pepper a whole brisket (trimmed of excess fat) and place in your large slow cooker.

    Add 6-8 prunes (I hear them called dried plums now) and 1 cup water.

    Turn on your slow cooker and go to work.

    Make a flour and water gravy with the juices before dinner.

    This makes some to eat, lots to share, and some to freeze. It’s a Jewish recipe, and I think Adam and Eve made it in the Garden. It’s so effortless and so good.
