"My Favorite Roast" from March/April 2009 Cooking With Paula Deen is a very basic recipe -- roast, onion soup packet, (low-fat low-sodium) cream of mushroom, and (low-sodium) stewed tomatoes -- but also a pretty yummy one. The roast was so tender that it fell apart when prodded with a serving spoon and the gravy, when thickened, had a nice tomato-y flavor.
(I thickened the gravy by removing the roast to a warm oven, decanting the juices into a pot, making a corn starch slurry, and whisking that slurry into the pot -- I don't make gravy very often, but this method yielded good results).
My only complaint with this recipe, really, is that it doesn't seem exceptional enough to be a Paula Deen original! Indeed, you can find many recipes like it on the Internets. But, will they taste as good? Who knows? Try one and tell me!
