How to make Beef Roast with Onion Soup Mix
While our roast is going to pick up plenty of flavors during it’s long roast time in the oven, a little salt and pepper will go a long way! Give your roast a quick hit of salt and pepper- make sure you pat it in real well.
Additionally, we’re going to give our roast a quick coating of flour as well. This will help with browning once you start searing it.
You’ll then want to roast this in a large pan or dutch oven. Make sure to brown it on all sides.
Remove your beef roast from your pan but leave any drippings in the pan. We’re going to add some flour to our roast juices here to make a quick roux.
Allow that roux to cook for a little bit. Once the raw flour smell to cook off and your roux has cooked to a nice, rich brown, you’ll want to add a packet of your onion soup mix. If you’re making a smaller roast, you’ll likely want to use just half a packet- you can use the other half here in a little bit. Mix that in and allow it to bubble a little bit before moving on to the next step.
We are going to need some more liquids in the pot for this roast. Stir some stock in gradually, making sure you’re stirring constantly the entire time. This is going to make a sort of gravy-like sauce that’s going to make our beef roast taste amazing!
After letting this sauce come up to a boil, we’re finally going to add our roast back to the party. Put it back in your cooking vessel of choice and top it with an extra packet of our onion soup mix.
Now we need to let our pot roast cook in the oven for a couple of hours. Let your oven warm up to 350 degrees before closing up your dutch oven and tossing it in to roast for 2 hours.
Once that initial 2 hours cook time is through, we’re going to pull our roast from the oven. Here, you’re going to add your veggies to the pot. Once you’ve added those in, pop your roast back into the oven and allow to cook for an additional 2 hours.
When those last 2 hours are through, your roast is ready to pull from the oven. You’re going to want to let it cool for a little bit before fixing up any plates- that sauce in there is hot! Once it’s cooled though, feel free to hack off some beef, grab a few of those veggies, plate up, and enjoy!
