top round steak, trimmed
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle
This receipe tasted great but I made some changes to it - which I highly was very pleased with.
a) I used Golden Mushroom soup instead of regular - it just made the sauce look so rich
b) I used Honey Brown Lager beer - it gave a nice sweet twist of a taste to it and only used HALF the bottle.
c) I quartered red potatos and baked in the oven at 425' for 30 minutes (45 minutes before pot roast was finished) in a metal pan, not glass - with salt, pepper, olive oil, paprika and oregano (topped with foil) and then dumped it into the pot roast for the last 15 minutes.
The sauce of the pot roast was something you could put over any meat or chicken and made the carrots and celery melt in your mouth.
I cooked a 3 pound roast on the stove, as directed. And it took 4 1/2 hrs.
I loved this recipe. I used a dutch oven and baked it instead at 300F for about 3 hours and when it was done the meat just fell apart and was so tender.
Excellent flavor. I also made it in the crock pot after searing the meat and cooking the veggies in oil. The gravy was wonderful on mashed potatoes!
Very good results! I love using beer in pot roast as you get such a tender meat and nice flavor. The mushroom soup adds a nice creamy taste to the broth!
So easy. So tasty. I used my crockpot. Seared the meat first and sauteed the vegetables. Used Cream of Mushroom with Roasted Garlic soup. I used a tri-tip roast and it was so moist and tender that my 17 year old who is NOT a red meat fan, loved it. Next time will cook some wide egg noodles and serve it like a stroganoff.
Yum! This was really good and really easy. Don't be intimated by the cooktime. All you need to do is toss stuff in a dutch oven and let everything simmer for a while.
I love cooking with either beer or wine which is why this recipe caught my eye. I did omit the cloves as I'm not a huge fan. I also added some beef broth, more seasonings and a bit of Gravy Master. Once the meat was done, I thickened with flour and some of the fat that had accumulated. This also works really nicely in the slow cooker once you've browned the meat. Just make sure you deglaze the pan with the liquid before transferring it to the crock pot. Very good Christy and thank you!
