The next stop for the pot roast leftovers was a pot roast mushroom soup that I had come across on chaos in the kitchen a while ago. I liked the sound of using the super moist, tender and flavourful beef in a soup and adding one of my favorite foods, mushrooms, had me completely sold. I liked the simplicity of the recipe so I left it mostly as is, though I did add some thyme which I always enjoy with mushrooms. The pot roast mushroom soup came together quickly and easily and turned out great! The beef could only get even more tender after simmering it again and it went really well with the mushrooms that were sauteed in butter. The soup was nice and tasty and full of flavour. Most of the leftover pot roast was covered in some of the tasty sauce that it was braised in so that added even more flavour to the soup. I served the pot roast mushroom soup with some cheesy toasted garlic bread .
