Was looking for a good Pot Roast recipe and thought I would give this one a shot. Cooking the rump roast in the dutch oven is critical. When it was done, it fell apart sooo nicely. I HIGHLY recommend using low sodium beef broth. I used regular beef broth, which made the roast to salty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown roast in butter in Dutch oven; remove meat from Dutch oven.
  2. Sauté celery, onion, garlic, parsley and thyme in Dutch oven for 5 minutes; return meat to Dutch oven.
  3. Add the beef broth, peppercorns, bay leaf, and salt to Dutch oven; bake in 325° oven, covered, for 4 hours, basting every 1/2 hour.
  4. Remove roast from Dutch oven. Strain stock into bowl. Discard vegetables.
  5. Using 2 forks, shred roast into bite-size pieces. Pour reserved stock over beef in Dutch oven. Add carrots, potatoes, and salt to Dutch oven and bake in 325° oven for 45 minutes.
  6. Drain stock from Dutch oven and add enough beef broth to stock to make 3 cups. Whisk stock and flour together in saucepan and simmer until thick. Pour gravy over meat and vegetables.
