As winter winds its way down, soon will be the time of longer days and BBQ's. For now though, with the temperature struggling to make it above the mid fifties, comfort food like the all in one pan "Pot Roast" is still tasting mighty fine.
I honestly can't remember ever cooking a pot roast before tonight. If I ever did it was so long ago that it's slipped my mind. (insert old age jokes here)
Oh well, here is my very first? second? one:
About a three pound chuck roast studded with garlic and seasoned with salt and pepper. Put a little oil in the pan and sear it on both sides on the stove top.
Put it in the oven at 320 F with a lid on for about two and a quarter hours. Put in some potatoes, carrots and onions. Back in the oven (covered) for another hour or so. Make a little gravy out of the drippings if you like. (cause the roast isn't nearly bad enough on your arteries by itself)
Fix a plate. Listen to the kids say, "Ewww we don't like onions". Tell them to, "Be quiet and eat 'em anyway cause they'll put hair on your chest!" (BTW- this only works with boys) and then enjoy some darned tasty eats. That's a roll at the top of the plate if you're wondering.
Thanks to my mom for the cooking instructions, and no I didn't use your top secrete method of preparing it. Bwahahahahaha (sorry everyone, inside joke.)
