Mock Pot Roast

Rated as 3.33 out of 5 Stars

"With potatoes, carrots, peas and onions, this meat loaf is just like a pot roast. Using ground beef instead of another cut of meat, makes it an economical meal-Marsha Ransom, South Haven, Michigan."

I have been making this for over 30 years. Now there is only the two of us it is easy to 1/2 the recipe. You can substitute bread crumbs for the oats but you get a slightly differant texture. ...

It tasted okay but it needed a longer cooking time. The middle was still raw and the potatoes and carrots were undercooked after the recommended cooking time had elapsed.

I really wanted to try this because it is a 1 pot meal so I made a few adjustments per mama amy's review and was happy with the results. I halved the recipe and cut the veggies in smaller chunks...
