  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Place roast in a large baking pan; arrange potatoes, onion, carrots, and celery around roast. Pour 3 cups water into baking pan. Season roast with salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Cover pan with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until roast is browned and cooked through, about 3 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the roast should read 145 degrees F (65 degrees C). Transfer roast to an oven-safe platter. Remove vegetables using a slotted spoon and arrange around roast.
  4. Reduce oven temperature to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C). Place platter with roast and vegetables in the oven to keep warm.
  5. Pour the remaining juices from the baking pan into a saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir 1/2 cup water and cornstarch together in a bowl until smooth; pour into boiling pan juices. Reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring constantly, until gravy is thick, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir in browning sauce.

Followed the recipe and the beef came out tough. It was my first try with a pot roast, so possibly I missed a step.

Very tender and moist pot roast - no knife needed. I added red pepper flakes, cabbage and some mushrooms since I did not have celery and used 2 cups of chicken broth and water (along with carro...

I replaced some of the water with red wine. I also added in some thyme and some bay leaves. The more important thing was that I browned the meat in a frying pan before ever putting it in the o...

I used twice as many veggies as listed here, skipped the water, used a quart of home-canned tomatoes with juice instead, and subbed garlic powder for garlic salt, using that liberally. I also ha...

This is very good and very easy to make. Not too many ingredients. I like cooking with wine when possible so I reduced the water by 1/2 cup and added 1/2 cup red wine.

Loved this recipe for the first chilly Fall evening! I added extra veggies to this recipe; broccoli and asparagus. I like to "Shake it up" a bit. VERY yummy served with warm sourdough bread.

Made no changes to this, meat did not need a knife was so tender. next time i will omit potatoes and add more veggies and mushrooms and make mashed taters cause of all the gravy i was able to ma...

My go to place!
