Country Style Pot Roast

Margaret Jacobs


I found this recipe a few years ago on the internet. It's really delicious. The original recipe uses oven cooking (covered at 350 F for 1 1/2 hrs before adding vegetables) but I make this on the stove top in a large covered pot. I also add 2-3 sliced garlic cloves for added flavor.

This pot roast is great with or without the sour cream gravy.
