I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU for your slow cooked roast recipe! It has been a joke in my family how truly BAD my roasts taste. My loved ones dutifully eat it because they see how hard I’ve worked on dinner ( plus they are nearly starved to death by the time dinner is served ) and they see the strained smile on my face as I bring their plates to the table. But even I can barely swallow the roast.
I always followed my “Better Homes and Gardens” cookbook faithfully and would try different cuts of meat, all to no avail; it still turned out so dry and tough.
Enter your help. I have been enjoying flitting about your website and finding all sorts of nuggets of advice. Then I found your slow cooked roast recipe! This was the answer I’ve been searching for, lo these many years! I had been cooking it all wrong. I thought I was doomed to buying the pre-cooked roasts-in-a-bag at my local grocery store.
Now my family smiles when they smell the roast cooking as they come home from school. And I feel great knowing I have mastered one of the basic requirements of motherhood… cooking the perfect roast.
Thank you for all your great tips!
Sincerely, Becky H.
“Your slow cooked roast recipe calls for pouring soup and onion over roast and to cover tightly. What do you mean by cover tightly? Wrap it in tin foil?”
Yes, wrap in foil. I just put one or two pieces on the top of the pan and then “seal” the edges with my fingers.
