Easiest Roast Ever

My daughter rarely raves about any food that isn't sweet, but she loves this roast.  Kind of amusing to me, because she is even willing to pick the pieces of onion off....(any of you, who read here, know she has texture issues with onions).

 I'm trying to continue the "fall in love with your cookbooks again" project.  I hadn't made this particular dish since last summer.  I'm not sure why.  However, finding a piece of beef on mark down was the perfect excuse.  This recipe is super easy and uses very few ingredients.  Also, I like that it uses ingredients I pretty much always have on hand.

 The only substitution I make is to use Braggs Liquid Aminoes, because I cannot use soy sauce.  That runs my cost up a little bit, but I offset it by buying in bulk.  I keep the huge bottle hidden in my pantry away from the light, and it lasts me quite some time.

 This recipe is from the Fix It and Forget It Big Cookbook.  (I bought my copy used -- hence the name written down the I love reading it for inspiration, even if I don't follow the recipes exactly.)

I use whole wheat flour to coat my roast with.  
This evening, when I serve it, I will thicken the sauce a touch if it needs it. 
Most of the time it doesn't require much, if any.
My daughter has requested rice and veggies with it.
We haven't decided on the veggie, but it will be whatever we have on hand.


  1. It's quite flavorful and tender by the end of the day. (It smells so good in here!)

    1. Easy and fall apart tender. We served it over rice. I didn't even thicken the liquid. Just put the rice in bowls and covered it. Yum!

  3. Looks good. I love being able to
    find meat on mark down.

    1. I don't find beef marked down a lot, and this price was too good to pass up.


Childhood Foods Revisited

While my husband and I were drinking our morning coffee, we were reminiscing about favorite elementary school meals. We both agreed tha...
