Super Deluxe Pot Roast

READY IN: 3hrs 47mins




  • Make small slits in top of roast. Insert a garlic slice into each slit, this and the kitchen bouquet is what is responsible for so much of the flavor. Rub roast with salt and pepper and use the 1/2 teaspoon of kitchen bouquet (a browning aid found near marinades in the grocery store) by pouring a little in the palm of your hand and gently patting it all over the roast. Be careful, a little of this goes a long way. Dredge in flour. Brown roast on all sides in dutch oven with hot oil. Add onion and wine.
  • While this browns and the onions saute, combine tomato sauce and next five ingredients, stir well and then pour over roast. Pour in beef broth, stir well and bring to a boil. Place tied herbs in broth, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours without lifting lid. After two hours turn roast and cook another 30-45 minutes. Add potatoes and vegetables (I always put in turnips too b/c I like them and have added everything from broccoli to cauliflower, mushrooms and bell peppers) Simmer one more hour or until roast and vegetable are tender to your liking.
