This came about in my search for another recipe that I had lost some time back. The broth is not strong and over powering, it's more lite and tomato like. This makes a wonderful Sunday pot roast for first timers or for teens learning to cook, it's just an easy, simple, fool proof way to cook a pot roast that will always come out perfect, tender and OMG good. Pair it with cornbread and WV style cole slaw and you have a wonderful Sunday dinner, and clean up is a snap, just pull the bag out and toss it away when your finished!! Hope you enjoy.
Preheat oven to 300. Place slow cooker liner into Dutch oven, drap top over the sides. Add 2 tsp of olive oil and garlic
Salt and pepper roast and brown in cast iron skillet using the remaining olive oil. Once browned on all sides, add to Dutch oven. In your skillet reduce heat to med add liquid from can of peas, enough water to equal 4 cups the package of beef stew mix and the can of tomato soup, stir to combine. Turn off, do not boil.
To Dutch oven add carrots, celery, onions, peas, and potatoes, pour liquid from skillet over roast and veggies and roast
Do not tuck top of bag into Dutch oven, leave outside, place lid on Dutch oven and bake for 3 hours, after 3 hours reduce temp to 275 and bake 1 additional hour. DO NOT REMOVE TOP OR PEEK TILL TIME IS OVER!!!!
