Best chuck roast recipe. No leftovers guaranteed

4 lb beef chuck roast (other cuts of beef do not work as well)
1 pkg (1 envelope) lipton dry onion soup mix
1 can(s) campbell's cream of mushroom soup
2 Tbsp a-1 steak sauce (or your favorite steak sauce)
Line a 9X13 pan with enough heavy duty aluminum foil to cover the bottom and wrap completely around the roast. Place the roast in the center of the foil and spread steak sauce over the top.

Sprinkle dry onion soup mix over top of roast and pour the can of mushroom soup over it.

Wrap the foil over entire roast and seal tightly. place in preheated 350 degree oven for 4 hours (don't peek).
Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before opening and be careful of escaping steam.
This recipe can be increased to serve more people and you can experiment with Beefy dry onion soup, Beefy mushroom soup, etc.

  1. Lipton Beefy Onion soup mix is one pre-made product I'm happy to use. I like the addition of steak sauce in your recipe. I'd put a nice glug of A-1 in mine!

    1. Been using this recipe for almost 40 years....a sure winner and delish too!!

          I posted it 2 days ago and got no responses; probably no one read it because of the way it was worded. I rewrote it and got responses almost immediately.

            You need to try or learn the shameless bump...

        2. Anybody tried this 'golden-oldie' in a slow-cooker? I bet it would adapt well. Thanks for reminding our household of this forgotten favourite, Mucho Gordo!

            I'd do this in a slow cooker 1st, or a dutch oven 2nd.
