Dilled Pot Roast -- Bonnie's

Bonnie ^O^


This Dilled Pot Roast for Sunday dinner is cooked in a slow cooker all day and guaranteed to be fork-tender at mealtime. The gravy with sour cream and dill is a perfect drizzle for the roast. The flavor is devine! I am happy to share this recipe with my JAP friends. Bon Appetit!

How to Make Dilled Pot Roast -- Bonnie's


  1. Combine the flour with the salt and pepper and coat the beef. In a medium skillet, brown the coated beef until it has a nice sear on all sides. Remove to platter, set aside to cool. Once cool, rub the Dijon mustard evenly on all sides of the beef.
  2. Place the vegetables in the slowcooker on the bottom and the mustard-coated meat on top. Pour in stock and vinegar around sides not over meat. Cook on Low 10 to 12 hours.
  3. Remove beef to a cutting board.
  4. Cut the meat into thin slices.
  5. Remove vegetables to a serving bowl.
  6. Make the gravy. Strain the cooking juices from the slow cooker into a 2 3/4 quart saucepan. Add flour, mustard and dill; stir over medium heat until sauce comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat, cool for a minute, add the sour cream. Taste to see if it needs salt.
  7. Drizzle the meat with the gravy to serve. Put the rest of the gravy in a gravy boat.
  8. Here is what it looks like on the plate. Enjoy!
