Old Fashioned Pot Roast

I remember when I was a kid we would have roast on Sundays quite often.  That was the day that we sat at the table and ate as a family.  I remember coming home from church and how the house would smell so good.  How comforting...

Can you believe that I never learned how to make it though? 

This last year has been an adventure in learning to cook for me.  Some things have worked and some not so much.  I was super happy when I found out how Easy roast is.  Easy in the kitchen and Easy on the wallet.


1 t. thyme
1 t. crushed rosemary
1 t. paprika
1 T. sea salt
1 t. pepper

Beef roast
2 T. olive oil

3 onions
6 garlic cloves
5 carrots
3 sweet potatoes
1 pack of mushrooms

Mix all the spices together and then rub on all sides of the roast.  Cover loosely and let sit on the counter  for an hour or so.  bringing the meat to room temp really helps it stay tender.

Preheat your oven to 350.

In a pan heat up your oil and then brown the roast.  It will take about 2 minutes a side.  Add a splash of water or stock to the pan and deglaze if needed.  Slice the garlic and onions and place on to p of the roast and cook covered for one hour.

Slice your carrots and sweet potato.  Add to the roast and cook for one more hour or till the veggies are tender.  When it is done place the roast and veggies on a plate to rest.  Take the liquid in the bottom of the pan and use it to cook the mushrooms in.  Cook them down quite a bit and use as a primal gravy to pour over the top.

Try this! It will make your life so much easier.
