Pot Roast Recipe

INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon olive oil

3-4 pounds chuck roast or rump roast

1 large onion chopped, or two small onions

4 carrots cut into 2″ pieces

2 stalks celery cut into 1 ½” pieces

1 pound baby potatoes

1 cup red wine

2 cups beef broth or as needed

4 cloves garlic coarsely chopped

½ teaspoon rosemary

½ teaspoon thyme

1 bay leaf

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 300°F.

Season roast with salt and pepper.

In a large dutch oven, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear the roast on each side until browned, about 4 minutes per side adding more oil if needed.

Arrange onions around the roast. Combine wine, broth, rosemary, garlic, and thyme. Pour over the roast. Add bay leaf.

Bring just to a simmer on the stovetop over medium-high heat. Once the broth is simmering, cover and place in the oven and bake 2 hours.

Add potatoes, carrots, and celery, and bake an additional 2 hours (for a 4lb roast) or until the roast and potatoes are fork-tender.

Discard bay leaf. Gently pull beef into large pieces with a fork or slice into thick pieces. Serve with juices (or make gravy below if desired).

To Make Gravy:

Combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch with 2 tablespoons cold water until smooth.

Remove beef and vegetables from the pot and set them on a plate to rest. Add extra broth if needed.

Bring broth to a boil and whisk in cornstarch mixture a little bit at a time until thickened.

Season with salt & pepper to taste.
