"This fix-and-forget roast is one of our family's favorite Sunday meals," says Jackie Holland of Gillette, Wyoming. "With just five ingredients, it's simple to prepare and leaves plenty of leftovers to enjoy later in the week."
Having never made a roast before, I experimented with a few ingredients to come up with this hearty all-in-one meal. Not only is it easy, but the tender entree gets terrific flavor from garlic, onion and bay leaves.
My husband and I used to raise cattle, so I prepared a lot of beef. This old-fashioned pot roast is the best, smooth gravy is a tempting topper for the tender, flavorful meat. I like to serve it with crisp potato pancakes.
