No Peek Beef

Dish: DInner
Dish Type: Beef
Cooking Method: Stove Top
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 2 1/2 hours

  • 20 ounces - club soda about 2 soup cansful or enough to cover
  • 2 cans - cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 medium-sized - onion, coarsely chopped OR whole, peeled boiling onions
  • 3 pounds - beef stew meat or pot roast
  • 4 or 5 - carrots, peeled and cut into generous chunks
  • 1 package - dry onion soup mix

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Spread meat in bottom of heavy casserole with a tight-fitting lid.  Sprinkle soup mix over top.  Spoon on soup (do not dilute).  Pour club soda over all.  Cover and bake for 2 1/2 hours. 

DO NOT PEEK WHILE ROASTING!!!  ...just in case you missed the title.  ;>


Super easy and really very tasty.  The meat will be very tender and the gravy makes itself  in the roasting.

• Frozen peas can be added and stirred in to warm at the last minute to keep their color if you're doing the stew meat version.

• If you're doing the pot roast version, no browning is necessary.
