My family loves this recipe! Pot Roast is a comfort food at my house. I love that I can use the root vegetables to amp up the nutrition for the kids.
Old Fashioned Harvest Root Vegetable Pot Roast
2 Tbsp oil
1 beef chuck roast
1 small onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 Tbsp chopped rosemary
2 bay leaves
1 cup dry red wine
4 cups beef stock
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp fresh black pepper
8 small red potatoes, halved
1 yellow onion, peeled, quartered
4 carrots, peeled, coarse cut
2 small turnips, peeled, quartered
2 small parsnips, peeled, coarse cut
1 tsp chopped fresh dill
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
In a large Dutch oven or other oven-safe big pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
When hot, add the beef chuck roast and cook on both sides until browned very well.
Remove the beef from the Dutch oven and set aside.
Add the onion, rosemary, bay leaves, and rosemary to the Dutch oven and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, for about 2 to 3 minutes or until herbs are fragrant.
With the heat still on, pour the wine in the Dutch oven and stir, loosening the brown bits. Continue cooking and stirring until the liquid thickens and reduces.
Pour in the beef stock and Worcestershire sauce and bring back to a simmer.
Add the black pepper, then lay the roast in the Dutch oven and put the cover on.
Put the Dutch oven in the oven and cook for 1 1/2 hours.
Remove and add the potatoes, onion, carrots, turnips, and parsnips; put cover back on and return to oven and continue cooking for 30 minutes more, or until the veggies are fork tender.
To serve: Remove the beef roast and vegetables from the Dutch oven and set aside, covering to keep warm.
To the Dutch oven, add the dill and parsley, taste and add more salt and pepper if desired.
Serve plates with meat, vegetables alongside, and spoon the sauce from the Dutch oven over everything.
