Momma Neely's Pot Roast

READY IN: 2hrs 50mins
Recipe by Scoutie

I LOVE pot roasts and this is one of the best I have ever had! I personally prefer a bone-in chuck roast. Lots of flavor with great results. I have added quartered potatoes, and some halved white button mushrooms. I add another garlic clove with some Italian Seasoning. Sometimes, I add a bit of broth and flour to the juices, then reduce it down to make a nice gravy.Time does not include resting time. This is VERY good, please try it soon!

OMG!!! This was an awesome recipe. I added fresh lemon thyme,whole new potatoes and thickened the pan juices with a little cornstarch slurry. The timing was right on as were the directions. My family just couldn't stop eating this! I took a photo of my own portion and will post it as soon as it shows up. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm so glad I adopted you Scoutie. I'll be trying more of your recipes soon. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
