ate.2011.04.08.d.jpgNormally when I make a roast beef like Mom makes I use an eye of round roast but pickings were slim at the grocery store this morning so I settled for a chuck roast. I seasoned at and roasted it at 350°F for 1 hour. After 20 minutes I added 8 oz. of water to the pan and drizzled soy sauce on the roast.
