Pot Roast with Spaghetti Recipe

Pot Roast with Spaghetti Recipe

My mother gave me this recipe some time ago. It's a winner in our family - kids especially seem to like the spaghetti. It's a different way to serve pot roast...and sure makes the house smell good when it's simmering! Everyone I've shared the recipe with has said how much they're enjoyed it.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 2-1/2 hours YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (2 to 3 pounds)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups hot water
  • 3 cans (6 ounces each) tomato paste
  • 1 pound spaghetti, cooked and drained
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, optional

Directions

  • 1. Heat oil and butter in a Dutch oven; brown roast on all sides. Remove and set aside.

"I have been making this recipe for over twenty years! The only changes I have made is only use one can of tomato paste and I cook mine in a 350º oven for the alotted time. This is a definite favorite in my household!"

MY REVIEW

"This was a success with my family. The beef was very tender, the sauce tasty, and everything went well with the spaghetti. I followed the recipe exactly; but the next time I make it, I may play around with the seasonings."
