1 large onion roughly chopped
4 or 5 Carrots peeled and chopped
3 or 4 large potatoes peeled and chopped

Cut slits in roast, poke garlic slices in holes.

Salt and pepper meat.

Brown in oil in a large pot...something deep that can go into the oven.

Remove meat and set aside.

Add soup and mix to pot add 2 cans of water.

Let come to a boil.

Add meat back to pot.

Add enough water to cover meat good.

Add onion and bay leaves.

Cover with lid or foil,

Bake at 350 for 5 to 6 hours.

Check on the liquid every so often you may have to add water.

45 minutes before it's done add potatoes and carrots.
