Working Person's Roast

This is the easiest way I know to make a beef roast, and it is yummy.

3 lb beef chuck roast
1 package Lipton dried onion soup mix
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 large clove fresh garlic, cut in slivers
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1/3 cup cooking sherry (optional)
Fresh or canned mushrooms (optional)
What to do:

Place roast in the center of a large piece of aluminum foil in pan. Cut slits in meat and push in slivers of garlic. Pour mushroom soup over roast, then add Worcestershire sauce, and sherry, then sprinkle dried onion soup mix over all. Seal foil across the top, leaving plenty of space around and above meat. Roast all day at 250 degrees F. You can also use a roasting pan with a tight lid, a slow cooker, or one of the roasting bags you can purchase in the grocery store. The roast is tender and juicy, and the gravy is made too. If you are home in time to add some fresh mushrooms to cook for a bit--even better!
