Skillet Roast with Potatoes and Carrots

   This is a really good recipe for cooking a roast on the stove. You need a heavy skillet with a lid for this one, possible a cast iron skillet.  This is a one dish meal, and it is easy but I wouldn't say it is quick.  But we all know good things come to those who wait, right.  Roast with potatoes and carrots is one of the ultimate comfort foods, and makes the house smell so good.   

Skillet Roast with Potatoes and Carrots


2 lbs steak, cut in cubes
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
Water to cover
Potatoes, cubed
Carrots,  1 inch cubes

   Brown steak in heavy skillet. Pour off grease.   Add soup mix and water to cover steak.  Cover skillet and bring to a simmer.  Add carrots and potatoes.  Return to simmer, and cook for about 1 ½ to 2 hours.  Add additional water as needed to keep it from going dry.
