Roast, Beef or Pork

  • 1 (3- to 4-pound) beef or pork roast
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • Salt and pepper

Preheat electric skillet at 400°. Add oil and brown meat well. Turn heat control down until pilot light goes out. Place onion on roast and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer beef 30 minutes per pound or until done; pork 40 minutes per pound or until done. Turn roast as necessary. If drippings in bottom of electric skillet start to scorch, add water as needed. If desired, add vegetables (potatoes, carrots, and onions) around roast for the last hour of cooking. Season vegetables and turn for even browning.
