Western Pot Roast

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by Mercy

This mouthwatering recipe comes from the archives of the Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce test kitchens. I usually toss some potato and carrot chunks in with the roast for the last hour, or so, of cooking. You can add 1/2 to 1 cup of water or beef broth if there isn't enough saucy liquid for the veggies to cook in.

This was wonderful! The most tender roast I have ever had. I left out the canola oil and browned the meat on a skillet and then put everything in a crock pot. I added cornstarch to the drippings to make gravy, but the gravy tasted like sweet ketchup and was not very tasty. I am def. going to make this again.
