Veggie Pot Roast

Dear Michelle,

I really appreciate your site. I am a mom of four too and I am finding it harder and harder to keep everyone fed on a tight budget! I wanted to submit a recipe to your site that my mother in law (frugal mom of three boys) came up with.

Veggie Pot Roast

2 packages of Morningstar steak strips
1 green bell pepper chopped with seeds removed
1 carrot, 1 celery stalk, half an onion, 2 large potatoes, all roughly chopped
1 pot roast seasoning mix, includes the oven bag.

Follow directions on the seasoning mix and bake it all together in the bag for about an hour on 350. For extra gravy, use a veggie brown gravy packet, found in most regular grocery stores in the health food section. I do extra potatoes on the side to feed everyone. Anyway, thank you for all the good info!

Dear Josey,

This recipe sounds so easy, especially with the oven bag, making cleanup easy too! The pot roast I usually make is more traditional though I do make it in the crock pot. I will definitely have to try this, thanks for sharing it with us and tell your MIL thank you too! Any by the way, I add extra veggies to make it go further for our family as well, it's a good trick that works wonders! :o)
