Yummy Pot Roast

I rarely make my pot roast the same, but this one turned out so well I wrote it down. It also makes it's own gravy.

How to Make Yummy Pot Roast


  1. Salt and pepper the meat, then dredge the meat in flour. Brown the meat in olive oil to seal in the flavor. The flour also helps to make a gravy out of the juices.
  2. Place the meat in a crock pot that is set on high.
  3. Add all ingredients except the carrots and mushrooms and and bring to a simmer, reduce the heat to low and cook for 4-5 hours. In the last hour add the mushrooms and carrots.
  4. I like to serve it with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.
