Another holiday has snuck up on me once again. This year is just creeping past me way too fast. Each holiday that passes I just shake my head wondering "how did that happen?" And I know that I am now the only one! I am sure my son will forget Mother's Day. And I dont fault him when I cant remember to write the correct year on a check (yes I still have a couple things that require checks!) But then I dont make too much of a big deal about Mother's Day. My own Mother and I have a pact that we wont spend money on these holidays. But the one thing that she wishes I could do is cook for her. She doesnt cook and would love to have someone cook for her. I would love to cook for her. This would be the meal I would cook for her. I know it seems like a heavy meal. But my mom loves dinner. Mother's day usually is a breakfast out type of meal. And she would love that too. But this, she would love even more. Now this is the perfect meal because it really is no work. None.
1 chuck roast
1 onion sliced
1 envelope Lipton onion soup
1 can REG coke cola (no diet)
Now I just dumped a handful of flour on a plate and threw a literal pinch of salt and pepper on the pile. No measurement. That easy.
Put about 3TB oil in a pan and crank the heat on high and browned both sides. It's how my Gram did it so it's the way I do it. I have friends that skip that step and just go to the next step. I think that my Grandmother will choke me in my sleep.
Place the meat in the Hot Tub (crock pot)
toss one onion sliced and sprinkle the onion soup over the top
Pour one Coke Cola (NOT DIET) in the crock pot)
This is exactly how it looks before I cover
