You buy a couple of things called "Cross Rib Pot Roasts".
About 1.2 kg's each. (that's like 2.5 lbs or so).
They're stupid inexpensive and fit nicely in your FREEZER.
Ok... so next sunday you want a nice dinner for the family but would rather not work too damn hard at it...
Here's what you do...
SOLID LIKE A ROCK frozen cross rib roast out of freezer at 2:00
Big piece of tin foil on counter.
Unwrap the roast... chip off the freaking styrophome thing thats stuck to the bottom... lol)
and put it on the tin foil.
Dump a package of dry onion soup mix on it.
Wrap carefully so you don't tear the tin foil
but wrap it well... fold the edges so it's closed.
In the over, on a rack over a pan, at like 400 for 3 hours!!!
(if you get a hole in the tinfoil, the moisture leaks out and the roast turns out bummer dry... so ... don't get a hole)
I mean, make potatoes, maybe some carrots...
and if you're enterprising, the drippings that fill the tin foil make a great gravy... just thicken it up a bit with some cold water and flour (teaspoon) mixed in.
Do that by putting the drippings in a fry pan and pouring in the water/flour bit and mix like mad while heating it up.
and yeah, that's what for dinner. :D
