(Cost for entire dish = $5.67)
Serves between 4 - 6 people. Depending on the people.
2+ lbs beef roast ($4.27)
1 Dry Onion Soup mix ($0.90)
1/4 cup water
1 cup sour cream ($0.50)
Cut the roast into 2 inch pieces, place in a crock pot on low. Add onion soup mix and water. Cook for 6 - 8 hours, stirring occasionally and adding small amounts of water if it gets dry. 10 minutes before serving, stir in sour cream and let heat through.
Serve over rice, potatoes or pasta.
These ingredient prices are so low because I watch for in-store sales. The meat was $1.89/lb (nearly half price) and my local store almost always has store brand sour cream for $1.00 for a pint. I usually buy the store brand of soup mix which is about half the price of Liptons.
And I LOVE my crock pot. It works all day and has dinner ready and smelling divine when I'm ready to feed my hungry crew.
