    In a dutch oven, melt the butter and add the 1 Tblsp. of olive oil. On high heat brown the roast on both sides. Add the garlic clove.
  2. Add a pinch of nutmeg to top of the roast. Sprinkle a bit of paprika on top of the roast. Add the onions to top of roast.

    Pour the beer down the sides and add the Myrtle leaf or bay leaf (optional) to the beer. Return to high heat until the beer begins to boil. Turn down to med. low and cover with the lid ever so slightly a jar.
    Cook roast until almost tender and turn it. A good Yankee Pot Roaste must stick to the bottom once. Add more beer if needed. Add potatoes and carrots and cook all until tender.
  3. Add the green beans to the top of the roast and cook until green beans are done. Remove green beans to a serving dish and keep warm. Remove potatoes and carrots to a serving dish and keep warm. Remove roast and make your gravy with flour and water.
