Pot Roast


Pot roast: one of my ultimate comfort foods.  I believe there are probably a million pot roast recipes out there, and for this particular recipe, I combined some of my favorites to create a tender, flavorful roast.  I like to cook roasts in my slow cooker, but on this particular night, I was cooking for my family and didn’t have the 7-8 hours that I prefer to have when cooking a roast, so I used my dutch oven instead.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4-5 lb chuck roast (if feeding about 8); you could get by with a 3-4 lb roast for feeding 4-6
  • 2 onions
  • minced garlic (enough to cover roast)
  • 32 oz beef broth
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 tbsp rosemary
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper

Recipe Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 275.  Melt butter in dutch oven.

Meanwhile, lather the chuck roast with kosher salt, pepper, and minced garlic.

Don’t be shy here, and don’t worry about making a mess.  Well, you can worry if you want to, but I don’t.

Next, brown roast in the hot butter by cooking it about 4-5 minutes on each side.

Then, quarter both onions and toss ’em in the pot.

Add the broth and rosemary.

Cover dutch oven and place it in the oven for about 4 and a half hours.  If it isn’t fork tender or meets any resistance, it needs to cook for about another 30 minutes.  You could also throw all of this into the slow cooker on low for 7-8 hours.

When you remove the lid, it may be messy-looking, but trust me, it’s oh so delicious!

I give this recipe 5 out of 5 herbs for sure!
