Sunday night Pot Roast just like my mom's

Thanks Brenda. keep on looking, I know you will find a better one than this. No hurry.

My Sunday night pot roasts of late, have been... let's say...a little bit dry and stringy. I know part of the problem is that I am using a very lean cut of beef. Pot roasts need fat in them to make em edible. Today, I bit the bullet, and acutally bought a cut of beef with a little fat in it. I probably won't let Gord eat any of it, because if he has another heart attack, it will be my fault. I will probably just let him smell it, and let him only eat the potatoes and veggies. I am such a bitch.


Nahhhh...I have eased up on the poor bastard, and every now and again, I let him have ham with his bread and mustard sandwich at lunch.


Thanks to you that gave me some information about doggies who suffer with arthertis. I felt so sorry for her today, because this was the first real day we could go outside without freezing our asses off. I could play in the garden, and Gord could start doing stuff with the lawn. She was allowed to come down to the lawn, but all she wanted to do is chase a ball. Well, ball chasing is over for her for now, as it always leads to a lame day the next day. And so it is for Gordon and I. We are lame too.


Hi Mom ... in heaven... please send me down your pot roast recipe. I can't get it right. Give Dad a hug...I love you ...Happy Mother's Day.




Showing off her big tomatoes from the garden.............. and she looks so serious. Look at her skinny legs, no hips...just like me. Now I know where I get it from. But I was never that serious, I have my dad's sense of humour ...as bad as that is.

We has burgers and hotdogs yesterday and a houseful of babies. Pot roast that someone else had cooked would have been some fine eating.

I'm afraid I'm realizing that what makes beef taste good is the fat- without it it's just another form of edible protein. Better tasting than tofu though!

I don't know about you but I cook my roast in the crock pot and they usually come out pretty nice. Need a recipe then check this suite and search for what you want. I use it lots for something different and there are lots of good ones on here.

Canuck is right - if you want a moist roast with very little fat, cook in the crock pot (or slow cooker for the 'mericans). You just sear the outside of the roast before you put it in and it has all the flavour with out all the fat.
