Oven Pot Roast


Ingredients

  • 3 - 3 1/2pounds boneless beef chuck pot roast

  • Salt

  • Ground black pepper

  • 2tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil

  • 114 ounce can beef broth

  • 1chopped onion (1 large)

  • 2stalks celery, cut into 2-inch lengths

  • 5cups assorted vegetables, such as peeled Yukon gold or sweet potatoes, cut into 2-inch chunks; parsnips, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks; whole shallots or garlic bulbs, halved horizontally; and/or small carrots, peeled and cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces

  • 1/4cup cold water

  • 3tablespoons all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Trim fat from meat. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. In a large Dutch oven brown roast on all sides in hot oil over medium heat. Carefully drain fat from pan; discard. Add beef broth, onion, and celery to pan.

  2. Roast, covered, for 1-1/4 hours. Remove celery with slotted spoon; discard. Add desired vegetables around roast. Roast, uncovered, for 50 to 60 minutes more or until meat and vegetables are tender, spooning juices twice during roasting.

  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove meat and vegetables to a serving platter. For gravy, measure pan juices; skim off any fat. Discard enough pan juice or add enough water to equal 1-1/2 cups. In a medium saucepan whisk together the cold water and the flour until well combined; add the 1-1/2 cups pan juices. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Season with salt and pepper. Pass gravy with meat and vegetables.
