There are a few things we wives know bring our men to the yard.
For my hubby, it's my roast.
For the longest time I avoided making roast because it intimidated me.
It was something my MIL made on Sunday afternoons and we all know the general rule about a wife's cooking vs. a mother's cooking so I steered clear of this one.
After attempting it once, I realized how easy and not-so-scary it is so I do it about once every other week and any time we have company coming over for dinner.
I think many women stray from roasts because they are time-consuming, but if I get home at 4:00 on a weeknight, my roast is done by 7:00 that evening. It's later than our normal dinner time, but worth the wait. And did I mention easy?
Here is what you need:
3lb roast (This gives us dinner and a leftovers)
Montreal Steak seasoning (even Food Lion brand is good)
Salt and Pepper
3/4 c. water
Here is what you do:
Line a baking pan with aluminum foil (to make clean-up easier).
Coat all sides of roast with salt, pepper, and seasoning to taste.
Lay in pan and pour in about 3/4 c. water.
Cover with foil.
Cook for 1 hour per pound at 300 degrees. (approx. 3 hours)
Your man will think you slaved away in the kitchen all day
and you'll be wondering what took you so long to try this!
