Sunday Pot Roast

Growing up, there was always some type of roast for Sunday dinner.  It was pretty standard fare for both my husband and I.

We are not big red meat eaters at our house but sometimes a nice, tender pot roast is just what you need.

Pot Roast

We go to church for three hours each Sunday (yes, you read that right – 3 hours).  My Sunday pot roast cooks for exactly three hours so it is the perfect Sunday dinner.

I pop it in as we leave and it is ready to eat when we arrive home.  Since it cooks with the potatoes and carrots all we really need to do is add in a green salad and we are good to go. Of course a basket full of warm home made rolls doesn’t hurt either.

Pot Roast

I use my nice big heavy duty roasting pan.  Mix together the water, soup and soup mix. Pour it over the roast and pop it in the oven.  How easy is that. My friend Jane taught this quick and easy method for perfect pot roast every time.

    I love a good roast every once in awhile too. We just had one a few weeks ago. I just put mine in the crockpot with some bay leaves after sprinkling with garlic powder and searing all sides. For some reason it is standard for us to have cottage cheese as a side with our roast, carrots, and potatoes. Yum!!

    You so reminded me!!! I had bought one on Saturday to do on Sunday and totally forgot. I”m going to do it tonight with your recipe instead of having it sit in the crock pot all day.

    This sounds delicious…I don;t have a heavy duty roasting pan..if I can use my crockpot…how much time and on what level should I cook it>?? Thank yoU!

      If you cook it on high your crock pot the time should be about the same. If you want to cook it on low it could probably cook for 5-6 hours depending on the size of your roast.

    There is also the bonus of that wonderful fragrance of food already cooking, when you return home from church, too! We, too, are at church all morning and return to church for much of the late afternoon and evening, so this sounds like a nice meal option. Especially since Sunday, following church, tends to be when we consistently have company! Thanks for sharing!

    Leigh Anne, I’m sure it’s self explanatory but, do the potatoes and carrots go in at the same time as the roast? Not closer to the end of cooking the roast? I love Sunday roast! I sure wish I had one for today. Tomorrow then… :)
