The other night we were sitting around and I asked the guys what sounded good for supper “next week” and the teen requested A-1 Roast. I didn’t quite follow the recipe (do I ever?) and here’s my take on it, which turned out pretty good, as evidenced by the fact that there were hardly any leftovers.
1 chuck roast, about 3 pounds
1/2 cup A-1 sauce
1/2 cup water
1 package of Lipton “Recipe Secrets” Beefy Onion Soup Mix
I apologize for the lack of “before” and “during” photos…hubby and I had to go to Fayetteville, so I was moving rather quickly, getting this into the crock pot.
Here are the instructions: place the meat into the crock pot.
In a separate bowl, blend A-1 and water and soup mix together. Pour over meat.
Turn crock pot on LOW for at least 8 hours. Mine cooked for about 9 and the meat was fork-tender; you didn’t even need a knife to cut it!
I served it with broiled asparagus spears, baby carrots and white rice.You can see the onions on top of the roast: yum!And if you’re wondering about the rice being brown, no, I didn’t make brown rice. It was white rice; I cooked it with Campbell’s Soup Beef Consomme for extra flavor. My husband used to love potatoes but they don’t always taste “right” to him, and he prefers rice, so I try to make it once a week or more and I like to change it, so it stays appealing to all of us.
