Mushroom Pot Roast

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 1-3/4 hours


8-10 servings

Mushroom lovers will tingle with excitement when they see this tender, slow-cooked roast. My recipe calls for a 1/2-pound of fresh sliced mushrooms along with onion, garlic and other seasonings and ingredients.


  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
  • 4 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms


  1. Sprinkle beef with garlic powder and pepper. In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, brown meat in oil on all sides. Add the water, onion, celery, garlic, bouillon and bay leaves; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour.
  2. Add mushrooms. Cover and simmer 30 minutes longer or until meat is tender. Discard bay leaves. Thicken cooking liquid if desired; serve with beef.
