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.
"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."
"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."
"We enjoy the mild mustard flavor of this juicy, tender pork roast," says Myra Innes of Auburn, Kansas. "With a little advance preparation, tis roast is simple since it creates no dirty dishes, and I get the rest of the meal ready while it cooks."
My friends rave about the different taste the cranberry sauce gives to this roast, and I couldn't agree more. I've made the sauce ahead of time and frozen it, which saves preparation time on a busy schedule.
THIS favorite recipe was one of my dear mother's, and each time I serve it, I'm filled with warm memories.
This was our family's celebration roast. Mother served it on birthdays and holidays. The combination of herbs enhances the drippings as well, so I use it to make a flavorful gravy.

This is one of the best pork recipes I've ever tried. My family looks forward to this roast for dinner, and guests always want the recipe. The flavorful rub and a glaze sparked with orange juice are also outstanding on pork chops.
Mom would prepare this delectable main dish for our family, friends and customers at the three restaurants she and Dad owned. The herb rub and vegetables give it a remarkable flavor. —Sandi Pichon, Memphis, Tennessee
