This pot roast is SO easy and delicious; and the best part about it.... it makes it's own gravy right in the pan! You can even put the ingredients in a crock pot in the morning on low, and your dinner will be done for you when you return home from work! This roast is so tender it will literally melt in your mouth! You may serve this with hot rice on the side with the gravy it makes in the pan, or just serve as is with the potatoes and carrots. Either way; it's a meal fit for a king! I hope your family loves it as much as mine does. :-)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place chuck roast in roasting pan and season with a dash of worcetershire sauce, a small sprinkling of onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper on both sides of meat. Place package of dry onion soup mix on top, add cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 can of water, chopped onions and garlic. Cover roasting pan tightly with foil and bake for about an hour and half until meat is almost tender but still somewhat firm. (Depending on the size of roast you have; you may need to cook a little longer than that.) After that, add the carrots that have been scrubbed with vegetable scrubber and cut into chunks or cut in half. Then add potatoes that have been peeled and cut into chunks. Cover tightly with foil again and cook for another 45 minutes or until carrots and potatoes are tender. Serve with hot rice and rolls. This dish makes it's own gravy for rice, or you may serve as is without rice.
