Ingredients2 lbs chuck roast
- 1 pkg frozen mixed vegetables (used a Florentine mix of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots.)
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 8oz fresh mushrooms, rinsed & quartered.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ¼ cup Jack Daniels
- 2 tbs of butter
- 2 Tbs olive oil
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
DirectionsDo your cutting! Rinse the mushrooms, chop the onion, cut the chuck into 3 to 4 inch pieces: pre heat the oven to 350 and spray a 9 x 14 baking dish.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Brown the meat about 5 minutes per side. Don't crowd the pan. This might take a few skillet fulls.
In a large bowl heat the vegetables in the microwave for 3 minutes.
Dump this into the baking dish. As the pieces of meat are browned, set them into this bed.
Add the butter to the still hot skillet but reduce the heat to medium. Add the onions and stir. Cut the drained mushrooms into quarters and add to skillet. Stir this occasionally for about 8 minutes.
Now pour in the Jack Daniels and the cup of cream. Stir this well and let cook down about 4 minutes. This will thicken up nicely. Stir in the can of condensed mushroom soup undiluted. (it will be pail in comparison to what you have just created, but it is necessary)
Spoon this mixture over meat and vegetables and seal with foil.
Let this roast for 35 to 45 minutes covered. Remove and let rest for another 5 minutes.
(as always slave leaves it up to you to season with salt & pepper to your taste)
This serves nicely with a brown and serve roll or bread in the same oven for the same time.
Carry it to the table still covered with foil and open it there in front or your guest or Master. The aroma is impressive as well as the taste.
