This slow-cooking method, where beef is wrapped in aluminum foil, with no supervision and mess, is ideal for less tender and less expensive cuts of meat. The final result: a welcoming aroma in the house and a juicy and tasty meal.

Preparation : 10 min Cooking : 3 h
250 calories/serving


4 tbsp ketchup 60 g
1/2 tbsp cornstarch 4 g
3/4 tsp Tabasco sauce 2.5 mL
1 tbsp wheat-free soy sauce 15 mL
1/2 tsp mustard powder 1 g
1 kg blade pot roast

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. In a small bowl, mix the ketchup, cornstarch, soy sauce, Tabasco sauce and mustard.
  3. Put the pot roast on a large sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil, spread the mixture on top, then wrap and seal thoroughly (you may want to add an additional sheet to ensure that the juices are well trapped inside).
  4. Put the wrap on a baking pan then cook in the middle of the oven. Serve with the juices.

I think it would taste good fresh, but as leftovers, it tends to be overcooked when reheated and a bit greasy. I used bison top sirloin roast
