Super Tender Pot Roast~

Hi everyone, I hope everyone had a super day. I spent the day with my oldest daughter shopping and it was so relaxing. This is my daughter that is so much like me its scary sometimes. I dont know if its good or bad!! Lauren had the day off for Veterans Day, so we got to spend some time together. I feel lucky to have her, shes such a great kid. Anyway, on to the cookin'.
Since I am all about the comfort food, today, I want to share my pot roast with you all. I have been making this the same way for most of my marriage (22 years). If I vary from this recipe everyone freaks out. I have to put up with the wary glances and the rolling eyes and just the sheer pouting that everyone does when it doesn't taste "the same". My family just loves this so am stickin' to it. Hope you try this because you will love it, I KNOW it.
This is what you will need:
Pork Roast-whatever size fits your family!
Seasoned Flour
Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Mushroom
Olive Oil
1 large onion
2 large cloves garlic
Coat your roast in the seasoned flour really good patting it in as you go.
Brown about 1/3 of your onion and one clove of garlic in about 3-5 tablespoons of olive oil.
Throw the roast in on top of garlic and onions and brown the roast really fast on high heat-dont forget the sides.
Put in your trusty roaster your mom gave you, cover with the rest of the onions and garlic (put your garlic through a crusher) and sprinkle the dry soup mix on top. Add about 1 cup of water. Bake this at 300 degrees for about 2 1/2 hours.
Cover with carrots and unpeeled, quartered potatoes. (Dont forget to wash em'). I had a few red potatoes so I threw those in. Bake this another 45 minutes to an hour.
The water you added will make the most wonderful gravy. If it needs thickening, you can thicken it with a little seasoned flour. This is making my mouth water just posting this. I can even see the steam coming off of it. I think its the low temp. that makes it so tender but I have never had this not turn out great. My kids love it and the leftovers-well, they dont last long!!
Have a wonderful night!
