Mom's Pot Roast

Mom's Pot Roast created by teresas

This is an old family recipe and it is the only pot roast recipe that I ever make. It is deceptively simple but the flavours just seem to go together incredibly well. The taste is quite different from the usual. Don't be tempted to put in more water than is called for. The moisture comes out of the onions and the meat and you end up with a delicious broth.

directions

  • In a Dutch oven, brown the pot roast in the oil.
  • This will take about 15 minutes to get all surfaces browned.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  • Lower the heat and simmer very slowly for 3 hours.
  • Take the roast out and keep warm.
  • Strain the gravy (serve the onions as a side dish).
  • Mix the flour with water and thicken the gravy if desired.

    This has so little liquid, how much gravy does it make?

    Excellent, didn't use the flour for gravy and just as good. You have to have mash potatoes with this gravy!!

    We really enjoyed this, it was very simple to make. I thought the gravy was a little on the sweet side, but my husband and kids loved it. Next time I'll probably use beef broth instead of water to see if I can take the sweet edge off just a little. Overall though, great pot roast, will make again. Thanks Paja!
