aluminum foil

Before you start

The cooking time varies with the temperature of the oven: I recommend using 135ºC/275ºF and calculate about 3 h per kilo of meat. If you prefer, you may vary the temperature between 100ºC/205ºF and 150ºC/300ºF, then adjust the cooking time accordingly (longer at lower temperatures and shorter at higher temperatures).


  1. Preheat the oven to 135ºC/275ºF.
  2. Put the pot roast on a large sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil, spread the soup mix on top, then wrap and seal thoroughly (you may want to add an additional sheet to ensure that the juices are well trapped inside). Put the wrap on a baking pan.
  3. Cook in the middle of the oven. Serve with the juices. It is not necessary to add any salt, since the soup mix is already salted.
