Perfect Pot Roast
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 2-1/2 hours
This recipe is delicious! The only thing I omitted was the parsley as I didn't have any on-hand, but the flavors were wonderful. I made this in a Dutch oven (seasoned and browned the meat on the stove top, then added everything else and put the whole thing in the oven) and it turned out beautifully.
Everyone loves this recipe. I omit the green pepper and use 2 cups hot water with 2 Tones Bouillon cubes dissolved in the water. Other brands of bouillon cubes could change the taste and make it bitter.I also make two chuck roasts as it freezes very well.I give it five stars as it’s a winner of a recipe.
Perfect comfort food at it's best!! This is a special Sunday Dinner item that everyone loves!!
I made the roast yesterday, according to the recipe, except that I used two shallots instead of the onion. A 3 1/2 pound boneless chuck roast was cooked to a tender texture with just a bit of pink inside, in 3 1/2 hours. I chilled the meat overnight, which let me slice it very thin today. The flavor and texture are both great! I will use this recipe again.
Loved this! I didn't have bay leaves when I made it, wish I had, but it was still very good. Used leftovers for bbq beef sandwiches. And I used cornstarch instead of flour to make the gravy. Works much better!

My husband and I thought this was very tasty, and I like the fact that canned soups and/or broth are not necessary.
I have been making this pot roast since I found the recipe back in 1996 in my "Best of Country Cooking" 2nd edition cookbook. It is by far our favorite beef roast recipe. The juices also make a great gravy!
This really is a good pot roast recipe, and I've tried many. We were given a handful of a variety of small peppers from a friend's garden. We didn't know if they were sweet or hot, so we just chopped them all up and threw them in with this roast. When it was all cooked, we placed shreds of the roast and the peppers and onions in freshly baked tortillas and had the best "fajitas" I've ever had.
This is my families favorite roast. I am always asked to make this. It has wonderful flavors and is probly the best roast recipe I have ever tried.
