Old Fashioned Beef Pot Roast

(1 Votes)
1 Hr 40 Min

It seems as if some version of pot roast is popular in just about every culture and in every type of regional cooking. Nothing beats the perfection of an old-fashioned recipe!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (3- to 4-pound) beef bottom round roast, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 cups water
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper; mix well. Rinse beef and place in flour mixture while still wet, coating completely.
  2. In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add coated beef and cook 5 to 6 minutes, turning to brown on all sides. Add water and bring to a boil.
  3. Cover and cook 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours, or until beef is tender and sauce thickens.

If the cover to your pot has a vent, then allow it to vent; otherwise, use a toothpick to keep the cover slightly ajar, allowing a little steam to escape during the cooking.
