Can this pot roast be saved?

I realized that per my previous post:

"-I used a top round, I know I should have used chuck"

thanks for the post(s)

Hell's Kitchen starts again tonight-does anyone care?

I might watch if I am bored but I *really* don't like the show, the contestants are usually unappealing and the whole schtick is old

Like I posted I have made it with both beefy onion and regular onion and the beefy onion was *much* better

I made a pot roast with lipton onion soup, I made a few with lipton beefy onion and they came out wonderfully but the regular onion soup ruined the pot roast :(

I cannot throw it out, any ideas on how to get the flavor out as much as possible and/or make it taste better?

was thinking of maybe making a taco/burrito filling with it or pulled bbq beef...

thanks!

Soup Noodles-Chinese

Thanks I keep forgetting to say I know about not cooking noodles in your soup!

My Italian grandmother always kept the "pasteen" as she called it, on the side and we added it to the soup as needed (with grated cheese on top of course!)

I tried to make a soup once a long time ago and put the pasta in at the same time that the soup seemed done.
it became glop :D

Soup Noodles-Chinese

Sounds great, I like not "real" recipes, they are usually the best kind!

will take a few for me to get some of the ingredients - Vietnamese beef base and miso paste-I know where I can probably buy them maybe

(but what are wonton noodles?)

Masterchef Juniors semifinals 2/17/2015 spoilers.

I usually wouldn't say anything on this subject, and may the best "man" win as they say-maybe these 2 finalists are the best idk

but two more pale faced boys in the finale is a letdown - same old, same old

I liked Jenna she had personality and spunk-she should have beaten the slightly chubby kid and Ayla should have been given more screen time

I didn't care who won in the last jr challenge,and I couldn't care less now

the last mc adult winner was unpopular as well-what a waste of time watching the show

My favorite winner ever? Luca!
I hope he pops up with his own program soon

I think without Joe coming back (I can't believe I just said that) stick a fork in this show(s) it is done.

Vegetables that aren't necessary to grow at home?

After reading this thread I think I will give a go with carrots, any recommendations on a carrot variety to grow?

I am a bit reluctant about carrots, I have always had the worst time getting them to germinate

I may give potatoes (and maybe onions) a try as well, lots of great replies! thank you!

My Aplogies, but I Need to Vent About America's Test Kitchen

If you paid with a credit card call your credit card company and file a dispute

Vegetables that aren't necessary to grow at home?

I am definitely doing tomatoes from seed, have found a nice pepper seed to try as well as a french filet bush bean, I can't find these varieties locally and figure they are worth my time to plant.

I may also plant some swiss chard, zucchini and 1 cuke plant

otherwise I can't see a reason to grow things like carrots, onions, potatoes, and cabbage-they are inexpensive to buy and will take up precious garden space

Am I missing a flavor payoff if I decide to grow these myself?

Seed Swapping, I'm hooked!

I may start my seeds on my dining room table as well, (do you use a grow light?) :)

Good point, I should have said that when I posted instead of saying "broth to cook the noodles in"

I never saw dried anchovies in the supermarket, would they carry them at an Asian grocery store?

Method 2 sounds like something I would try, thanks!

Where do you buy your seeds?

Do you order them from a catalog or buy them at the store?

I was going to try Baker Creek again this year maybe, their catalog is gorgeous-I recommend ordering one online! http://www.rareseeds.com/request-cata...

Pot Roast lacks flavor-suggestions?

Hi I am making a pot roast in the slow cooker with Lipton onion soup, 1/3 cup water, onions, carrots crushed garlic and a bay leaf. It's cooked for a few hours now

I added 1/2 bouillon cube as well and 1 tbs mushroom soy but it is still not "there"

Things I have on hand that could be added: original Maggi, more mushroom soy and bouillon, regular soy, dark soy, Worcestershire sauce, accent/msg and maybe some Kitchen bouquet way back in a cabinet somewhere

Any suggestions to pump up the flavor some?

Thanks!
