Recipe: How to Make a Pot Roast

I have ever met a person who does not love pot roast. I take that back.  The Girl Who Thinks She’s a Bird, her BFF The Mathematician is a vegetarian. But besides her… who doesn’t love a nice hunk of meat that has been simmered in a dutch oven all day long?

Since I had planned to work all day in the garden yesterday, pot roast seemed like the perfect choice for dinner. My pot roast recipe is simple.  Peel a few carrots, wash a few red potatoes, chop up an onion, gather up a little steak & Italian seasoning, toss it in a pot and call it good.  Well almost.

A few years ago while watching a cooking show {I don’t remember which one} they demonstrated how searing the meat first helps to lock in the flavor of the meat. And ever since then, that is what I have done.

Onions are a biggie too.  You must include onions.

And everyone knows a true pot roast dinner is not complete without a few carrots and potatoes.

So if you are looking for an easy peasy weeknight dinner, or a meal for Sunday Supper…

This simple pot roast recipe is a keeper!
