Melena's Pot Roast Recipe
I got this pot roast recipe from my daughter. It is made in the crockpot and makes its own gravy which is a plus! You can use either a beef or pork roast. I personally like the pork roast. You can even use the cheaper butt roast cut. Take about a 6-7 lb. roast and brown the outside in a pan. This seals in the juices. Place the roast in a crockpot and add two cans- cream of mushroom soup, one envelope of dried onion soup mix along with a can of water. [I like to mix the soups and water in a bowl and whisk first but it isn't necessary.] The recipe says to cook on low 9-10 hours but I find you may have to alter the times to suit your own cooker. The longer you cook it the more tender it gets. If you want you can also add a can of mushrooms and a cut up onion to the recipe. People usually "ooh" and "ahh" over this recipe. Enjoy!
