This is a recipe familar to most cooks - it has been making the rounds since the 1960's or earlier.
But just in case there is someone out there who hasn't tried it I am posting it now. It is just too good not to be in every cook's recipe box!
It is about as easy as it can get, - only 3 ingredients!, fall off the bone tender, and soooo soooo tasty!

How to Make Fork Tender Pot Roast

Step-by-Step

  1. Place roast on large sheet of aluminum foil in a baking pan. *If roast is very thick, I usually cut it in half length-wise, and lay the pieces side by side.
  2. Spread canned soup over the meat to cover, then sprinkle the dry soup mix over the soup. Be sure to shake up the dry soup mix in its' package first to distribute the seasonings evenly - Or - you could just stir the canned soup and dry soup mix together well, then spread over meat. Works fine either way. Fold foil tightly to completely enclose the meat.
  3. Bake at 300 degrees for 4 hours. Start checking for doneness after 3 hours.
    You can also raise the temperature to 350 or so, and cook for less time. For me the longer, lower cooking time seems to work best.
  4. Carefully unwrap the foil, and enjoy the tender meat and tasty gravy!
