This was without a doubt the best pot roast I’ve ever made. So simple and just a few ingredients and cook it all day long.
I started with a couple of onions quartered in the bottom of my large cast iron dutch oven.
Next up was the cheapest piece of beef I could find in the store, a 3 to 4 pound chuck roast. Place on top of the onions and season well with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Then I just mixed 2 packages of brown gravy mix with 1 1/2 cups of water and poured over the beef. I placed it in a 275 degree oven for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours then turned it down to 225 and cooked it 10 to 12 hours
And it just fell apart. It was the most tender, juice beef I’ve ever cooked.
All I did for the gravy, was thicken it a little with corn starch.
So if you need a money-saving recipe, cause you can use cheap meat, this is the one for you! I assume this would work in a crock pot, but I haven’t tried it, so if you do let me know
