Pull Apart Roast

Last night was Dutch Oven Monday night. We had some friends come over, and we decided to serve a pot roast with mashed potatoes, carrots and a mixed berry crisp for dessert. We call this kind of roast "Pull Apart" roast because our son called it that when he was little. If the meat is a good quality roast, then when finished cooking, it does pull apart with just a fork.

Unfortunately, the roast we had wasn't quite that good. It tasted good, and it was not tough, but it didn't pull apart like we would have liked. I just think that it was the quality of the meat and not the way it was cooked. This was the first time that we cooked this in the dutch, and it took the same amount of time as it does when cooked in a conventional oven.

It's just a good, basic roast recipe that provides a nice, comfort meal.

Pull Apart Roast


12 dutch oven

Ingredients

Pot roast ( 3 1/2 4 lbs.)
2 pkgs. beefy onion soup mix
1 can beefy mushroom soup
1 bag baby carrots
1 medium onion
6 cups hot water


Place roast on trivet in the 12 dutch oven. Combine hot water, onion soup mix, and mushroom soup. Mix well and pour over roast. Add carrots. Peel and slice onion and add to dutch. Cover and cook at 350 375 for 3 hours.

Remove roast when cooked and keep warm. For gravy, strain cooking juices and skim fat. Pour juices into a saucepan. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth, gradually stirring into the juices. Bring to a boil and cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with mashed potatoes


Serves 8 - 10

Actually, it was a chuck tender. We hadn't tried one of those before. And since the store didn't have any good old pot roast, we tried it.

I make something similar but use less water. The chuck tenders do seem to have a rump roast like texture. I prefer a pot roast any time.

Yup, I agree.

Actually no. We spent 3 months at Belfair State Park as camp hosts last year. We just fell in love with the area, especially all of the good eateries. We'd love to come back again. Although I have to be honest and admit that we didn't have a lot of rain during our stay, so maybe that would change our minds.

Belfair State park is a nice park. I bet you enjoyed it. You should come back. We have been having rain for the last few days. It's a nice relief from the couple 99 degree days we just had.

We loved it at Belfair. We've hosted all over the country, and Belfair is absolutely our favorite so far. We'd come back in a minute, but there's so much more to see that we haven't seen yet.
