Now Rebekah is in need of her own miracle. You see, last week, her 16 year old son, Kent, had a stroke while doing PT during his JROTC class. It was touch and go for a few days and now, praise God, Kent seems to be on the upswing. He is off all life support. He is alert and coherent. Kent has a great attitude which he will need because he has a long road in front of him. Kent has very limited movement on his right side and is not able to speak yet. But...he has sat up. He is participating in his therapy sessions. He smiles and gives big thumbs up when he is happy. God is good and so is Rebekah and her family. Please include them in your thoughts and prayers.
Thanks...now back to Secret Recipe Club. My favorite club in blogland filled with wonderful people and talented cooks like my friend, Rebekah. I belong to group D of the Secret Recipe Club. We are a big club with over 100 participants so we are broken down into 4 subsets. Each month we are assigned a blogger in our group and secretly look around their blog posts to find a recipe that we want to recreate. Then on the same day, we all reveal who we had and what dish we made. It is fun and if you would like to join us you can find out more on the Join SRC page.
Rebekah has a serious recipe page, broken down into categories to make browsing easy for you. Since I am very familiar with Rebekah's blog and recipes and since I had just gotten a side of beef put away in my freezer, I went directly to the beef section. Rebekah does something in her recipe file that I have not seen any other blogger do. She marks the recipes that are her family's favorites and that she makes time and again. So when I saw this recipe for Pot Roast was marked as a favorite, I knew that I wanted to make it. After all, you can never have too many pot roast recipes as you never know what ingredients you are going to have in your pantry.
I made only one change to this recipe. I did not have a ranch dip packet but I did have an onion soup packet so I substituted that. This recipe, as Rebekah's name for it promised, is perfect and oh so easy. Thanks Rebekah. We are praying for you daily and anxiously awaiting your return.
This roast was perfect. I made gravy with the juice. Just strain into a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Mix a little cornstarch with water and whisk it in. Cook and stir until thickened. It did not require any extra seasoning. I served roasted potatoes, carrots and brussels sprouts along with it. There were plenty of leftovers which will become Beef Pot Pie later in the week. Thank you Rebekah.
