The Best Sunday Roast Beef

Coming home from Sunday services to a home cooked meal that greets you with wonderful, enticing aromas when you walk in the door is a gift from heaven.  Everyone is starving and no one wants to wait for long meal prep.  It’s great to have a sure-fire way to cook a meal so it will be ready to eat when you get home. I have a solution for you!

This recipe has been my favorite way to cook a roast for lots of years.Also, if you’re not great at making gravy, this recipe is a blessing because it makes its own gravy!   You could use any variety of beef cuts – Chuck Steak, round roast, whatever is on sale.  The technique is the same, but you may just need longer cooking times for larger pieces of beef.  

Here’s the recipe:

Sunday Roast Beef Dinner
Roast beef
Oil
Carrots – However many you need for your group
Potatoes – ”
Lipton Onion Soup
Cream of Mushroom Soup
Water or broth

Directions:  Add a couple tablespoons of oil to a shallow pan and sear the meat (cook at  high temperature just to brown and caramelize a crust on the meat.) You could even do this part the night before!
Place roast and vegetables in a crock pot.
Spread undiluted soup over roast, icing it like a cake!
Sprinkle Onion soup over the mushroom soup and vegetables.  Add a cup of water or chicken or beef broth.

Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.

  1. My husband loves to cook Chinese food. So once in a while I get the treat of a Chinese meal. He made home made Kung Pao Chicken, Sesamee Chicken, Potstickers, and white rice. My son and family and one other family from our church joined us. My son brought his home made Hot and Sour Soup! My husband is the pastor of our church so it is a hectic Saturday late night prep work, but he loves it, and I do all the clean up after him! It was a great meal!
