    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6-8

    Yield:

    roast

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Assemble all ingredients except carrots, potatoes and horseradish. Be sure to use a good wine that you would drink.
    2. 2
      Mince garlic and chop onion into quarters. Choose a pan that is large enough for roast to lie flat and that has a tight fitting lid.
    3. 3
      Pat meat dry and lightly sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper. Rub flour into meat. (If using regular table salt, use even less.).
    4. 4
      Sear in oil over medium-high heat until browned on all edges.
    5. 5
      Add remaining ingredients except the carrots, potatoes and horseradish. If not enough liquid to cover roast, add water (or more wine).
    6. 6
      Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low (more than simmer) and cook for 8 hours, or until the whole roast is falling apart.
    7. 7
      The secret to tender pot roast is to cook it long enough, so if it's not tender yet, that means it's not done yet.
    8. 8
      If you don't have enough liquid to cover the roast, you'll have to flip the roast over every hour or so.
    9. 9
      Add carrots and potatoes the last hour. Peel them and chop to desired size.
    10. 10
      Serve with horseradish sauce and au jus (broth from pan).

      5 stars all the way!!!! This was so moist and tender. Lots of flavor. Did put mine in the crock pot. Left out the potatoes because I wanted mashed potatoes to go with this. Gravy was wonderful and I loved the fact that it made so much. Was able to have hot roast beef sandwiches another night. Highly recommend this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing this puppity pup :)

      A fork-tender pot roast with lots of flavorful _gravy_ to keep it moist! I made mine in the slow cooker, omitting the chicken broth. Done to a T in 7 hours, I did not add the carrots and potatoes but served Golden Whipped Potatoes on the side. Leftover roast will make hearty sandwiches today and the broth will be a great start for French Onion Soup Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      Yes fall apart tender! I started with a 2 pound chuck roast. There is only 3 to feed today! I started cooking stove top for 2 hours low heat never had to flip because I placed in oven at 350 and continued to cook for 3 hours. Used my Smokey Seasoned Salt for the beef and only needed 1 tablespoon of flour to coat the meat. 1/2 cup red wine was enough for I needed to have some! LOL! I used my Oven Dried Onion / Garlic Flakes for the onion soup to keep back on the salt and MSG. I did use the carrots that I cut on an 1/4 inch angle, skipping the potatoes for I made my Mashed Potatoes With Roasted Garlic and Herbs. I added dried wild mushrooms that I soaked in red wine then added to the pot. With the remained of the flour I made a slurry with red wine and whisked into the sauce to make a wonderful gravy a 1/2 hour before serving.
