This recipe is from Cuisine at Home. Fabulous! You can add other veggies to the roast. Hearty ones when you add the carrots, quick cooking ones in the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking.

How to Make Pot Roast Par Excellence

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 325°.
  • 2Trim meat of excess fat and season
    with salt and pepper;
  • 3Heat oil over medium-high in an ovenproof Dutch
    oven. Sear roast on both sides until
    brown, 8–10 minutes total. Remove
    roast from the pan.
  • 4Sweat mushrooms, vegetables, and
    seasonings in the pot for 5 minutes.
  • 5Add the tomato paste, cook 2 minutes,
    then stir in the pretzels.
  • 6Deglaze with Guinness, scraping
    up the brown bits on the bottom
    of the pan; stir in broth, Dijon, and
    Worcestershire.
  • 7Return the seared roast to the pot and bring the liquid to a simmer. Cover the pot, then
    transfer to the oven; braise roast for
    2 hours.
  • 8After 2 hours, remove pot from the oven and turn the roast over with a carving fork.
    Add carrot chunks, then cover and
    return pot to the oven. Braise another
    45 minutes, or until the meat is
    spoon-tender.
  • 9To serve, transfer roast and carrots to a platter and cut meat into chunks. Bring sauce to a simmer,
    skimming off fat, then spoon it over
    the roast.
    Garnish with parsley.
