Pot Roast

Was up early again yesterday so decided to make a Pot Roast with a boneless inside blade roast. I never use an actual recipe for pot roasts. I browned the roast well in a cast iron skillet. When the meat was browned I added to  cut up white onions, a head of peeled and  cracked…

Instead I roasted it Friday morning  and made  Beef Dip Sandwiches on homemade baguette for breakfast. I took  the same thing…
