Braising makes this bottom round roast tender and delicious. Serve this roast with mashed potatoes and your choice of vegetables for a fabulous family dinner.


  • 1 beef bottom round roast, about 3 to 4 pounds
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 to 4 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed beef broth
  • 4 tablespoons cider vinegar


Rub beef roast with the garlic and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Rub all over with the finely minced garlic.

Heat oven to 325°.

In a large Dutch oven or covered oven-safe pot, cook the bacon with onion until onion is softened. Remove bacon and onion to a plate and sear the roast in the drippings on all sides. Add the onion and bacon back to the pan along with the apple juice and beef broth. Stir in the vinegar.

Cover and bake for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, until very tender.

Excellent Roast. Best I have made., Member sunfever83

I have cooked a lot of roasts, but this was the first one I actually braised. This recipe is very simple, and the roast comes out so tender and juicy. This is simply the best roast I have ever cooked and it will definitely replace my other roast recipes.
