How do you cook your Pot Roast?

Like most people I rotate the same 10 dinner items with some adjustments. It's called getting in a rut. I just remembered that I have not made a pot roast since last winter.

Wanta make one tomorrow. Will go with the best recipe posted here.

I'll check the thread before I go off to the city at 6 a.m. to get the provisions. TIA.

Flour it up.
Brown in a black skillet both sides

Make brown gravy with pan after browning meat
Cut whole onion up
Several small potatoes
Toss all, plus some salt pepper other seasonings in crock pot for pretty much all day.

Eat... Feast.

Pot Roast in a bag. You can find it at the grocery store. Use the juice from the bag for gravy.


Try it before you scoff.

Season meat and sear.
Remove meat and deglaze dutch oven with 1 cup red wine.
Add 3 cups beef stock and a couple tablespoons of tomato paste.
Put in veggies, potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, and garlic. Put meat back in on top. Put he lid on and put in 400 degree oven for about 2 hours.

Same, but I don't flour it first and also add baby carrots to the crock pot.

Dust in flour. Add to pot and brown all sides in a bit of oil. Add 1 or 2 cans beef broth, 1 grated carrot, 1 stalk finely chopped celery, 1 medium chopped onion, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp kosher salt, 2 bay leaves.

Cook covered in oven at 325 degrees for 2-3 hours depending on how close to fall apart you want.

Add veggies - carrots and potatoes, mushrooms, onions for last hour.

Season and brown the chuck in dutch oven, remove and toss in two diced onions to deglaze, then place roast back in on top, add stock to cover half and cook away. When done remove roast and add cornstach slurry to pot to thicken the au jus. Cook rice and veggies on the side.

I use to do the sear, cut up onions make gravy all hat method.
And I consider myself a damn good cook. Went culinary school for 6 months as well.
But having said that. My mom gave me a recipe and it is so damn easy and so good.
3-4 lb chuck roast
1 packet of liptons onion mix
1 can of Campbell's golden mushroom soup
Fill soup can with water and add that as well
Cover and bake for 2 hours at 350
Perfect everytime and great flavor

My mother would always add a can of green peas at the end of cooking so I still find myself doing this to add a juxtaposition of color and contrast.

The onion soup mix is really hard to beat as a flavor enhancer.

This one ! You can also substitute 12 oz of dark beer like a stout or bock for the water.

re: How do you cook your Pot Roast?
I was hoping someone else would type out the method I use, so I could just say, "this."

Anyway, I make slits all over the roast and insert either 1/2 (cut lengthwise) serrano pepper-cicle or 1/4 (cut lengthwise, but they're fatter than serranos) jalapeno pepper-cicle. A whole garlic clove goes in every other slit. Then take a demitasse spoonful of Tony's and add that to each.

Then, like everybody else, sear all sides of roast in hot oil, deglaze with either red wine, beef stock, or water. Cover, lower temp, cook till it's delicious.
