Family Pot Roast


This pot roast recipe is made with potatoes and carrots and rutabaga.

  • 1/4 cup water or beef broth

Dredge pot roast with the flour; brown in hot oil in a heavy Dutch oven or stock pot, turning to brown all sides. Put a rack under the roast. Season with salt and pepper; add sliced onion and water. Cover and simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Add vegetables and simmer 1 hour longer.
