Pot Roast

I so enjoy preparing this family favorite. This pot roast is so easy to make and the family loves it. I give credit to my father who taught me how to cook this recipe. When I make this pot roast, I always thank my father who passed away in 1998. He gave me the love of cooking. I miss him and hope making this pot roast will make you feel that family closeness and connection that my father and I shared.

      I remember my mother's pot roast on Sunday's after church. It was the best flavor and you have reminded me of how much I enjoyed it. I may have to make some this coming Sunday, just for the memories. Thank you!

      I have never made pot roast but every time I hear the words "pot roast", it sounds delicious. Cool video. I would like to try to make it at some point, and your recipe gives me some good ideas. Thanks!

      Now you've got me hankering for pot roast, Laura! I make mine a little differently than you. I do it all on top of the stove in a big pot. I brown the meat, then add Lipton onion soup. I let it cook for about 4 hours. 30 minutes before it's done I add baby carrots, whole mushrooms and new potatoes (peels on). When the veggies are done, I take everything out, add in some corn starch slurry to make the gravy, then put everything back in the pot. Delicious!
