Easy Pot Roast

Life is busy enough without having to spend tons of time in the kitchen.  I like to cook, but after I spend time cooking, I'm pretty well done with being in the kitchen and sort of dread the clean-up.  And I'm a messy cook.  

I've always heard "a messy cook is a good cook".  

I am trying to do better and clean up as I go. 

But getting back to my first thought, I believe you can make good food without spending hours doing it.  

This pot roast is a perfect example of doing just that.

This pot roast takes three hours in the oven at 350 degrees, but you can put it in a Crockpot in the morning before you go to work, cook it on low all day, and it will be ready when you get home.   I have done this many, many times.

This is so easy, and it is really delicious.

Easy Pot Roast

1 - 3 lb. Chuck Roast
1 Package of Lipton's Onion Soup
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup

Place roast in a dutch oven.  Sprinkle the Onion Soup Mix on top.
Add can of Cream of Mushroom Soup and water to cover roast.  Bake at 350 degrees for 3 hours.  Roast will be fork tender.

You can thicken the juices to make a gravy; however, if you need to save time, you can skip this step and just use the juices from the roast and soups as gravy.
