Beef Pot Roast with potatoes and carrots
I forgot to take the picture before I cut the roast up so this is after I've already cut it into peieces. :)
Here's what I did:
Beef Pot Roast
2.5 pound sirloin roast
a few red and gold potatoes (I was kind of using up what I had left in the bags)
about 1 pound of carrots
1 can of french onion soup (this one was not condensed it said not to add water)
1/2 can of water (to make sure I have enough juice, we like a lot)
salt and pepper to taste
I just sliced the poatatoes and carrots and put them in the bottom. Then salted it. I actually didn't use pepper because my 5 year old doesn't really like it. Then I sat the roast on top. I poured the soup and water and a bit of salt on top. Then covered and baked at 350 for about 2.5-3 hours. I just kept checking it every so often after 2 hours to see when it was nice and tender.
If I had any I would have added some beef base to this but I am out. I can't wait to get my soup bases delivered. They will probably be here early next week.
This was really yummy. I fixed it on Thursday night. Needless to say, I didn't stick to the menu plan completely. Just like this roast. But sirloin tip roasts were on sale for $1.89 a pound so it was just too hard to pass it up! :)
Hope you're having a great weekend!
