How to make it

  • Pre heat oven to 350
  • Season roast well with salt and pepper,dredge in flour and shake off excess
  • Brown in hot oil on all sides in a dutch oven untill nice and brown
  • Take roast out, add chopped veggies and garlic and saute for a few minutes to get them kick started, add 1/2 cup - 1 cup water and deglaze pan alittle (beef broth is good here if you have it)
  • Add roast back in pan and add spices, alittle more salt/pepper, tomatoes and water just to cover the top of the roast( again this is where beef broth is great, not the end of the world, water is fine, some like a cup of red wine as well, but the tomatoes really give it a rich flavor)
  • Cover and cook for about 3 hrs at 350
  • Add some cut up potatoes and couple of more sliced carrots
  • Cover and cook another 45min. - 1hr. until meat and potatoes are tender.
  • Take out pot roast and veggies onto a serving platter leaving the juices in the pot.
  • Mix 1 1/2 Tbls. corn starch with a couple of Tbls. water and add to pot on stove top.
  • Bring to a boil and lower heat and simmer 3-4 min. to thicken gravy.
  • Serve gravy on the side with meat and vegetables.
  • Enjoy!

    This sounds delicious and simple. That's my kind of recipe! I'd also have a good hot cornbread on the side......

    Pot Roast Is A Favorite Around Here Too. I Like Stewie's Idea Of Parsnips In This, The More vegetables, The Better! Thnx For Sharing My Friend.
