I don't know where this recipe came from, but my mother made it for years. My only change was adding more garlic, as my family loves garlic for taste and for health.

Ingredients

  • 1 2-3 lb piece chuck roast
  • 3 tablespoons shortening for browning
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 onions chopped or sliced into rings
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1/2 can water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Method

Rub roast with salt and pepper.

Heat shortening in a pan.

Brown roast on all sides in shortening. Either use the same pan if big enough, or transfer to a dutch oven and add water, soup, onions and garlic. Cover and cook on low 1 1/2 hours. Then add the remaining ingredients, cover and cook another 1/2 hour.

Remove lid and cook another 45 minutes on stove top.

Place in a preheated (300 F) degree oven, uncovered for a further 45 minutes.

Serve with rice and vegetables. I have made this in a slow cooker, but I found that the onions practically dissolved, although the taste was still great!
