Elizabeth gave me a nifty little book (well, she may have loaned me the book) about blogging.
I made the most delicious meal yesterday! I told you I'm in the 12 Days of Christmas swap. Well, in one of the packages I opened she included a page of her favorite recipes. I tried her roast recipe, and it was so good. Note: proper credit will be given to her at the end of the swap...I'll come in to edit this. Editing to add: Swapper LanaR was the cook!
"Using a chuck roast, use A1 sauce to marinade in (I do mine for several hours), put into a dish and cover with a package of Lipton onion soup mix and a can of mushroom soup. Cover and cook for 2 hours at 350. When I do it mine always takes longer and I uncover it. It is so tender and good!"
Now I modified it to the extent that I put it in the crock pot (and I always use Pam spray on the crock to make clean up easier), and added maybe 1/2 soup can of water. Oh, I also am not a fan of mushrooms so I used cream of celery soup.
When I bought my chuck roast, the store didn't have any small packages, so my $11 package was cut into 3 sections and I have 2 in the freezer. I still used the full can of soup and the full package of onion soup mix (store brand) for the gravy. Since I cook for one, I didn't bother with sides. Instead I had an open-face sandwich on toast. I'm sorry there's not a picture to share, but I was ready to jump in and start eating!
So there you have it. Even though the book says no one cares what I had for lunch, I'm taking a chance and telling you what I had for dinner.
