My mother used to make pot roast in foil, and this evening I’m carrying on the family tradition. Tear off about a five-foot piece of 18-inch-wide aluminum foil. Set the piece of pot roast in the center of it; surround it with chunks of potato, baby carrots, and an onion, cut into chunks. Sprinkle on a couple tablespoons of minced garlic and two packets of Lipton’s Onion Soup mix. Fold the foil into a packet, creasing the seams so they’re steam-tight. Before you seal the packet, add about a quarter-cup of water. Set the packet in a baking pan and cook in the oven at 350F for about two hours. Yummy goodness
Mrs. R says you can do it in the crock-pot, but it’s just not the same. Part of it must be the ritual of preparation.
Another twenty minutes to go, so I thought I just had time to bang out a description for the SDMB. You can envy me. :D. Now I’ve got to go set the table.
