This souper-easy pot roast will satisfy
your need for yummy comfort food.
It takes only 5 minutes to put together.
I used the crock pot, but when I was given this
recipe from a relative, crock pots weren't even
on the market yet. That's how old this one is.
I love the memories behind each recipe I've
been given. They're the best "souvenir".
So, you can make this pot roast in the
crock pot or in the oven. I've given cooking
times for each option.
The Golden Mushroom soup and sherry wine are
what make this recipe different from others.
I always use the dry sherry (not cooking sherry)
in this recipe.. I use it in several other recipes
as well, but it's also suitable to drink.
Mix everything together in the crock pot
then add the meat.
Turn it over to coat
both sides with sauce.
My favorite: cover and know that
dinner is taken care of and the house
will smell amazing when we walk in.
I love mashed potatoes with this dinner.
They are so worth the effort, but if you're
short on time, you can microwave a potato.
There's plenty of gravy to ladle over
everything. Carrots always seem appropriate
with pot roast for me. I just microwaved
them, then added butter, salt and pepper
