PERFECT POT ROAST
Cooking meats, I have to confess, isn't my specialty. But everyone who tastes this main-course dish wants more! I'm a mostly at-home mom. I like to sew and read. I also enjoy gardening-we grow a good-sized patch, and it's so nice to have fresh-picked tomatoes and spinach when I make salads.

PERFECT POT ROAST
- Preheat the oven to 275ºF.
- Generously salt and pepper the chuck roast.
- Heat the olive oil in large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the halved onions to the pot, browning them on both sides. Remove the onions to a plate.
- Throw the carrots into the same very hot pot and toss them around a bit until slightly browned, about a minute or so. Reserve the carrots with the onions.
- If needed, add a bit more olive oil to the very hot pot. Place the meat in the pot and sear it for about a minute on all sides until it is nice and brown all over. Remove the roast to a plate.
- With the burner still on high, use either red wine or beef broth (about 1 cup) to deglaze the pot, scraping the bottom with a whisk. Place the roast back into the pot and add enough beef stock to cover the meat halfway.
- Add in the onions and the carrots, along with the fresh herbs.
- Put the lid on, then roast for 3 hours for a 3-pound roast. For a 4 to 5-pound roast, plan on 4 hours. The roast is ready when it's fall-apart tender.
PERFECT POT ROAST
- You'll need a 7 quart crock pot. Place the roast in the pot. You can dredge it in flour and brown it first but I don't bother. Add the potatoes, carrots, and onions, in that order. Sprinkle the onion soup over top and then dot with the mushroom soup. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste, and pour in the water. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours. If I can, I like to stir after about 4 hours, to mix the gravy. Otherwise you can stir it before serving. Makes it's own gravy which I find to be thick enough. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.

PERFECT POT ROAST
- Preheat the oven to 325ºF.
- Combine the salt, pepper, and ground fennel in a small bowl. Generously season the roast with the spice mixture.
- Add enough oil to a large Dutch oven to coat the bottom. Heat it over medium-high heat, add the roast, and sear 8 to 10 minutes total, turning to brown all sides. Transfer the roast to a bowl.
- Add the carrots, onions, and garlic and season lightly with salt and pepper. Sauté the vegetables until browned, 5 to 8 minutes, being careful not to burn the garlic. Remove the vegetables and place in a clean bowl.
- Deglaze the pot with 1 cup of the cider. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up any brown bits that have stuck to the bottom of the pot. Bring the liquid to a boil over high heat. Add 2 cups of the broth and bring it to a boil again.
- Add 4 sprigs of the thyme, the rosemary, bay leaf, and roast to the pot (reserving the vegetables in the bowl). Bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer.
- Cover the pot, place it in the oven, and roast for 2 hours. Add the reserved vegetables and roast for 1 more hour, until the roast is fork-tender but not mushy.
- Remove the roast and vegetables to a large bowl or platter and cover to keep warm. Let the braising liquid cool slightly, then strain the liquid into a bowl (discard the solids).
- Skim off any fat that has risen to the top.
- Purée the braising liquid in a blender.
- To make the sauce, heat 2 tablespoons oil in the Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the flour and stir to combine with the oil. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup cider and the tomato paste and mix well.
- Return the braising liquid to the pot along with the remaining 1 1/2 cups beef broth and the remaining 2 thyme sprigs. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until the sauce is thickened.
- Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Remove the thyme sprigs.
- To serve, slice the pot roast, arrange the vegetables around it, and pour the sauce over the top.
- Variations: Tipsy Pot Roast
- In many pot roast recipes, there is an element of alcohol. In mine, I use hard cider, but you can also try red wine, a heavy beer, or-for your Irish friends-Guinness. The booze gives the meat an extra dimension but won't get the family hammered.

- Season 1 side of beef with salt, pepper & ___. I usually use ground thyme or ground ancho pepper. Use what makes you happy but keep it 'earthy' - this isn't the place for mint or herbes de provence. ;).
- Heat a dutch oven to hot, add a couple TB oil & add meat, seasoned side down. Season the top side. When the bottom is nicely seared, flip over. When the other side is nicely seared, remove to a pan with sides to collect juices.
- Preheat oven to 300°F.
- While the meat is searing, peel, halve & thinly slice the onions.
- Add butter & another 2TB oil to pan. When the butter has melted, add onions. Season with 1tsp salt. Stir to scrape up caramelized bits on the bottom. Cook slowly until caramelized, about 15 minutes.
- Add can of beef broth & bring to a boil. Stir.
- Add meat & any juices that have accumulated in the pan. Cover & put in 300F oven for 2.5 hours or so.
- You will not need a knife. The liquid is essentially French onion soup.
