Liz’s Kitchen: 5 Ingredient Pot Roast Recipe
This is one of my favorite things that my mom used to make me! I remember when I asked her for the recipe the first time I couldn't believe it was that simple. It really went along with the "meat and potatoes" diet that my grandma always talked about! The meat comes out so tender and the vegetables are so tender. It's a hearty meal that you will going back for seconds for! The thing that really seals the deal is using a cast iron dutch oven, you can use a crock pot too but if you have a dutch over or a roster dish it's the way to go!
The chuck roast I used was from Sivue Farms, the cut look beautiful and wasn't overloaded with fat! You can learn more below the recipe about their upcoming open house and how you can purchase a cow share.
5 Ingredient Pot Roast Recipe
Chuck Roast 4-6lbs
1.5lb Red Potatoes
42.5 ounces Whole Peeled Tomatoes (Big can and a little can)
1 cup water
Slat, Pepper and Oil
Set your oven to 350 degrees and get your mise en place ready. Quarter the onions and cut your carrots. Remember that if you cut your carrots too small they'll turn to mush in the roast so cut them a good size.
Next, lightly brush oil on your roast and generously salt and pepper each side.
Heat the dutch oven over medium-high heat and wait for it to get really hot. Sear each side of the roast for 2-3 minutes getting a nice sear on each side. Turn the heat off on the burner.
Add you tomatoes, potatoes, onions and carrots over the roast. I like to slice into the tomatoes to let the liquid come out to help with the liquid in the dutch oven. Add the cup of water and put the lid on.
Place in the over for three and half hours. Pull out, serve and enjoy.
It was so delicious and tender and just the right amount of salt! The beef from Sivue Farms was awesome and they were kind enough to give us some of their product when we did our show there last week I thought it was a perfect opportunity for a Liz's Kitchen!
