How to make it

  • Melt oil in a heavy skillet or dutch oven.
  • Brown roast well on each side - add onion, bay leaf, salt and 3/4 cup water.
  • Cover tightly and cook slowly on top of the range OR in a 350 degree oven for 1 hr.
  • Mix together and add brown sugar, vinegar, ketchup, and raisins.
  • Cover and continue cooking about 1 hr. or until meat is fork tender. Remove pot roast to a hot platter.
  • To make gravy, skim off excess fat from broth, leaving about 2 Tbsp fat. Gradually combine 1/2 cup cold water with cornstarch.
  • Mix until smooth; add to broth and stir until gravy is clear and thickened. Serve gravy over roast.
