Beef Pot Roast

Are you ready to learn how to make the most mouthwatering, fall-apart-tender pot roast of all time? Well, grab your apron and let’s get cooking!

First, let’s gather our ingredients:

  • 3-4 lb chuck roast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 cup red wine (optional)
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 4 carrots, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 2 lbs small red potatoes, quartered
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour

Now that we have everything we need, let’s get to work!

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 325°F. Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Place the chuck roast in the pot and sear it on all sides until nicely browned.

Step 2: Remove the roast from the pot and set it aside. Add the sliced onion and minced garlic to the pot and cook for 5-6 minutes or until the onion is translucent.

Step 3: Return the roast to the pot and add the beef broth, red wine (if using), Worcestershire sauce, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 1 hour.

Step 4: Add the carrots and potatoes to the pot and stir everything together. Cover the pot and bake it in the preheated oven for an additional 2 hours or until the roast is tender and easily shreds with a fork.

Step 5: Remove the pot from the oven and transfer the roast and vegetables to a serving platter. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour to the saucepan and whisk it together until it forms a paste. Slowly add in 1 cup of the cooking liquid from the pot, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 5-10 minutes or until it thickens into a gravy.

Step 6: Serve the pot roast with the gravy poured over the top and a side of your choice. We recommend serving it with some creamy mashed potatoes or a big ol’ slice of crusty bread to mop up all that delicious gravy.

And there you have it, the best authentic pot roast of all time! Now go forth and impress your friends and family with your culinary skills. Just don’t be surprised if they ask for seconds… and thirds
