Sunday Roast

Not that this recipe is anything really special, but it does produce a very tender roast that falls apart with a fork..  Just the way I like it.

 Sunday Roast
about 5 pound roast
1/4 c shortening
Lawry's season salt
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place roast in roasting pan with about 1/4 c shortening and season liberally with Lawry's and salt and pepper.
Brown roast at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes.  15-20 minutes a side
Add water (2 cups, enough to keep it moist) and decrease to 200 degrees if cooking overnight or 250 degree if cooking for several hours.

I find it works best to cook at the 200 from first thing in the morning and it's nice and tender by the afternoon.

I love to serve with mashed potatoes, gravy and the crescent rolls that I posted earlier this week!!
