Easy Beef Pot Roast Recipe

I know that it is technically still summer, but I had the craving for a real comfort food meal ~ a slow cooked beef roast with vegetables and gravy!


2 1/2 lb beef roast
3 carrots - diced
3  stalks of celery - diced
medium onion - diced
5 white (or sweet) potatoes - diced
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary - chopped
1 1/2 cup beef broth
1/2 cup red wine (optional)
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons corn starch (for gravy)

Heat a large pan; add 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
Mix flour, salt, Montreal Steak Seasoning; dredge the beef in the mixture.

Brown the beef  in the hot oil on all sides.

Add chopped vegetables, rosemary, bay leaf,  one cup of beef broth, and wine.

Cover, and simmer for 3 - 4 hours.  You can also use a slow cooker.

Remove beef and vegetables.  Cover to keep warm.  Discard the bay leaf. 
Raise heat to medium high, and allow the broth to come to a boil.  Mix together 2 tablespoons corn starch and 1/2 cup beef broth; add slowly to the boiling liquid.  Stir until the gravy thickens.

Enjoy! Pin It
