Recipe Idea: Don’s Pot Roast
Don here. When it’s cold outside, we love to eat comfort food, like Don’s Pot Roast. Lois was hungry for some “comfort food” to take the chill off of a Saturday evening. She went to the grocery and brought home a beautiful three-and-a-half pound boneless chuck roast. I like the pot roast cooked slowly so our Crock-Pot Slow Cooker is my favorite appliance to prepare this dish.
Even though I use a slow cooker for this delightful family favorite, it does take a bit of work up front to prepare the vegetables and put it all together, perhaps 30 minutes active time. But then, it’s just waiting until you are ready to serve. You can finish by thickening the juices to make a gravy (my favorite), or simply serve it au jus (meaning, with the juice).
The chuck roast is a good piece of meat for using in a pot roast. It has good marbling and fat throughtout, and when cooked slowly the way this recipe is made, it becomes very tender and flavorful. And it’s usually not expensive. We like to eat this meal with some good, homemade Crusty French Rolls and a glass of red wine.
