A very different way to serve pot roast - with a delicious garlic cream sauce. Cook the beef, slice and combine with the sauce, then bake when needed. A wonderful dish for guests and sooooo good!

- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 3⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- Brown meat slowly on all sides in oil in Dutch oven.
- Season generously with salt and pepper and add broth.
- Cover and simmer for about 3 hours or until meat is very tender.
- Remove meat from pan, let rest for 20 minutes, then slice thin.
- Do not use pan juices.
- For sauce, melt butter until it bubbles and browns slightly.
- Add cream, garlic, lemon juice and salt and pepper.
- Cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes.

Delicious! We used the pan drippings from cooking the roast to make a brown gravy to go over mashed potatoes - maybe overkill with a cream sauce already a part of the meal, but it was tasty business! Green peas were our vegetable, and they were unbelievable rolled around in the garlicky cream sauce. It will definitely be just a once-in-a-while meal, but one we'll look forward to!
Thank you for a fantastic recipe. I have made this twice now, it is so good. The beef becomes so tender, and the sauce is delicious. This is definitely company quality. I had a dinner party recently and served this to my guests - they really enjoyed it. I loved the fact that I could prepare this in the morning, and when my company arrived I just popped it in the oven, and relaxed with my guests. Thanks again for a wonderful recipe.
