Because I am generally the worst pot roast maker on the planet, I was eager to find something simple that maybe I could do. This recipe, for me, was a great starting point. First, I only used a 2lb. roast since there is only 2 of us. I seared the meat on all sides to give it color and to seal in juices. Second, I only used one can of cream of mushroom, but instead of water, I used beef broth. I also added a bay leaf. At first, I was worried about the onion soup, because I generally do not like it. But it came out very tasty. I added my carrots and potatoes about 2 hours before the roast was done and they came out very soft. I also added extra water so the roast wouldn't dry out. I was extremely pleased with the results and finally felt successful making pot roast! Thanks!
