Arianna's Easiest Roast Ever
This is the easiest way to make a complete meal, impress your in-laws, and not have a lot to clean up afterwards. It makes the house smell great too.
1 pork/beef roast (get what's on sale!)
1 small bag baby carrots
1 large can whole white potatoes
1 bag pearl onions
1 envelope French Onion soup mix
1 roaster bag
1 tablespoon flour
Salt, pepper, and thyme to taste
Using the roaster bag (available at most grocery stores; Reynolds makes them), put the tablespoon of flour in the bag and shake to coat the inside.
Quarter the potatoes. Put roast, potatoes, carrots, and onions in bag. Sprinkle seasonings in the bag (to taste). Dump the envelope of French Onion soup mix into bag. Close bag. Using a knife, make 4 slits approximately 3 inches in the bag. Put bag in a pan. Bake at 350ºF for 1-2 hours depending on the size of the roast. Use a meat thermometer to check the wellness of the roast.
Sprinkle some parsley over the roast when serving.
