Old Fashioned Chuck Roast w/Potatoes, Carrots and Onions


I remember it vividly!



It’s “chuck roast,” Mom corrected me, on the day I blurted out “pot roast.”  Must've been because she didn't want the cattle on our farm to be offended... 😉

This is surely, a classic old fashioned dish.  In fact, when Bill and I married and lived in Louisville, it seemed like I served this for Sunday dinner after church about every Sunday I could.  Place it all in the Dutch oven and let the oven do all the work, roasting nice and slow while we were at church.

Nothing like walking in the door to this aroma, well cooked seasoned roast, potatoes, carrots and onions, couldn’t get it on the dinner table fast enough!


Ready for roasting


I loved it, it was easy to make, but it was overkill, the boys eventually got tired of eating it so often, and ball games, etc. got in the way!  It was a long while before I made it again, and then another length of time to yesterday, Sunday, when I cooked it...

It was a cold (14°) day with 5-inches of new snow on the ground,  perfect weather for beef roast and vegetables for our dinner.

This is still one of my absolute favorite meals.  It’s a well marbled chuck roast that winds up being fall-apart-tender and melt-in-your-mouth delicious.  It’s not a meat to rush, it has to be roasted for a long period of time. 


Voila!


This slow cooked roast is an easy and delicious way to put dinner on the table on a Sunday for your family or when you have company.  

Just remember to pass the horseradish, it's a necessity. Bill says this is the only meat he likes with horseradish!

It will not be years before I make this dinner again, it’s till one of my favorites, and here’s what Mom used to do with the leftover meat ~ these days, Bill carries on with it; he makes a delectable beef salad sandwich!

It’s all just SO GOOD AND DELICIOUS!

  3. Pam, Chuck or pot roast is one of our favorite and 'go to' meals, especially in cold or cool weather! We serve this entree 4 - 6 times every year, partially because its easy, but also because its always enjoyable. We do serve beef gravy with ours though and we add 3 - 5 celery stalks to the roasting pan. I love the roasted carrots, the potatoes (with butter and gravy) and the meat...in that order! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  6. I think that's close to my mother's recipe too. Maybe back in the day everyone made that pot roast! Yes, your weather is just like ours, probably the same storm system.

  7. I haven't had a pot roast in ages, but it was a standard for my mother. I'm still without an oven, but this is a perfect winter crockpot meal -- or several meals.

  18. Did you hear there is a 12 word sentence you can say to your crush... that will induce deep feelings of love and impulsive appeal for you deep inside his chest?

    Because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's impulse to love, please and protect you with all his heart...

    12 Words Will Trigger A Man's Love Instinct

    This impulse is so built-in to a man's brain that it will make him try harder than before to make your relationship as strong as it can be.

    As a matter of fact, fueling this mighty impulse is absolutely mandatory to achieving the best possible relationship with your man that the moment you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

    ...You'll instantly notice him open his mind and soul for you in such a way he's never expressed before and he will see you as the one and only woman in the world who has ever truly understood him.

  19. As claimed by Stanford Medical, It's really the SINGLE reason this country's women get to live 10 years more and weigh on average 19 KG lighter than we do.

    (Just so you know, it has NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret-exercise and really, EVERYTHING about "how" they eat.)

    BTW, What I said is "HOW", and not "what"...
