A very moist roast, this gains richness from the gravy, and the bacon gives it a somewhat different taste. For variety, you can cube the roast and serve it over rice with gravy...or cube and mix it with noodles, gravy and vegetables if you'd like to make it into a casserole. My husband and I have a son, 15.

"This tender roast is one of my favorite fix-and-forget meals," says Jan Roat of Red Lodge, Montana. "I thicken the juices with a little flour and add ketchup, then serve the sauce and beef slices over pasta."
I grew up on a farm, and we ate beef often. I was so pleased to find this recipe 15 years ago, since it gives pot roast a new mouthwatering flavor. I'm always looking for no-fuss delicious meals, and this slow-cooked supper is definitely one of them.—Erica Warkentin, Dundas, Ontario
