  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Whisk flour, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder together in a bowl. Dredge roast through the flour mixture to evenly coat.
  3. Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat; brown roast in the melted butter, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer roast to an oven bag and put into a 13x9-inch casserole dish.
  4. Whisk beef consomme, water, onion soup mix, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl; pour into the oven bag over the roast. Cut 6 small slits in the top of the oven bag for ventilation.
  5. Bake roast in the preheated oven for 1 hour 45 minutes; add carrots, onion, and mushrooms to the oven bag and bake until vegetables are tender and roast is cooked through, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You may also add potatoes or any other other vegetable to the bag. You can also add to the water to reduce saltiness to your liking.

Amazing is all I can say!!!!

This method of cooking the pot roast is excellent! The pot roast came out so tender and juicy. Due to food allergies I did not use the onion soup mix but I tried to replicate the spice mixture....

I followed the recipe and the roast was delicious. Even my pretty picky stepmother had seconds. I will definitely make it again.
