Pot Roast With Gravy

Diana Rattray
This is an old-fashioned beef pot roast with vegetables and gravy. Feel free to add other vegetables to this pot roast, such as small white onions, parsnips, or sweet potato chunks.


  • 1 chuck pot roast, tender chuck, chuck arm, etc., 3 to 4 pounds
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • dash leaf thyme
  • dash garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 5 to 6 medium potatoes, peeled, quartered (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 1 small rutabaga or a few turnips, peeled and cut in chunks
  • 1 medium yellow onion, cut in chunks
  • 1/2 cup red wine or more beef broth
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons cold water


In a food storage bag, toss pot roast with 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder, a dash of thyme, and a dash of garlic powder. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large saucepan; add the pot roast and brown on all sides. Add beef broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 2 1/2 hours. Add 1/2 cup red wine or beef broth, along with the vegetables. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes longer, or until vegetables are tender. Strain juices into a saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes. Combine 3 tablespoons flour with 3 to 4 tablespoons water and whisk to make a smooth mixture. Stir into the simmering broth, a little at a time, until thickened as desired.

Arrange sliced pot roast and vegetables on a platter. Drizzle some of the gravy over the sliced beef or serve gravy on the side.

Instead of thyme, I just used some cellary seed. I also doused it with more salt than called for, I used Kosher. Before adding veg, I spread them out and salted and peppered them too. No wine, just beef broth. YUM-YUM:}
