Fabulous Food Friday: Pot roast

Meat, oh, how I've missed you! This past Sunday, I made a wonderful pot roast. I started off cooking it in the crockpot, but ended up taking it out of the pot and putting in a roasting pan in the oven. I can't get my roasts to not turn out dry in the crockpot. Maybe it's the altitude! Ha, just kidding, I'm sure I can only use that excuse for baking!

So, for this one, I don't have an exact measurement recipe. But it's super easy and the taste of the gravy is fabulous! I took about a 5 pound roast and seasoned it with Lawry's season salt, Worchestire sauce (several shakes of the bottle), and a couple of shakes of liquid smoke. Then for the gravy, I used a can of cream of mushroom soup and a package of dry onion soup mix. I can't tell you how long to cook it since I didn't bake it in the oven the whole time. But obviously, cook it until it's done but not too done. I used a roasting pan and covered it with with foil and baked it at 350 degrees. Be careful when removing the foil because I burned my finger with the steam (at least it wasn't hot coffee!) Oh, I also added some cut up potatoes and carrots the last hour and a half. It was great! The gravy was seriously delicious if I do say so myself :)
