3 to 4 lb pork roast
1 medium to large onion; diced or chopped fine.
1 lb mushrooms (I prefer cremini, portabella, shiitake and oyster mushrooms)
1 envelope of Lipton onion soup

Cut larger mushrooms to bite size.
Rinse roast and dry with paper towels.
In Dutch oven using 2 tbsp of olive oil brown roast on all sides.
Remove roast and saute onions; add olive oil if needed.
Insert roast onto the onions.
Spread dried onion soup over top of roast.
Add mushrooms around roast.
Bake for 2 hours in preheated oven at 350.
After 1st hour check level of liquid. If low add a cup of water.
When roast is done remove roast.
Tent with aluminum foil for 20 minutes.
With slotted spoon remove mushrooms.
Thicken drippings with flour and water mixture and gently and continuously stir until gravy is smooth and thick.
Slice roast and serve.

Note: There are many more servings of roast than mushrooms. You may add more mushrooms if needed. However, I use the extra roast to make pulled pork BBQ.
