Perfect Pot Roast


This is the PERFECT Sunday, family day, comfort food!

I love the rustic and homey feeling that I get smelling this all afternoon roasting in the oven.

Like all my recipes I tend to use what I have at the time so I rarely have the exact same meal twice!

olive oil, drizzle enough to coat bottom of pan

2 onions, quartered

3 carrots, chopped

2 stalks celery, chopped



4 cloves garlic

2 tsp thyme

1 cup beef broth

1 cup red wine

1 pkt Lipton onion soup mix

Drizzle olive oil to coat bottom of Dutch oven, get pan really hot and toss in onions, get a nice char on them and remove, add celery and carrots, garlic and repeat. Then, generously salt and pepper beef, sear all sides and ends, remove. Deglaze pan with red wine and broth. Add seasonings, beef and veggies back to pan. Place in preheated 275 oven for 4 hrs. or longer. It just keeps getting better.

For variations you can add mushrooms, squash, beets, potatoes, leeks, parsnips, anything!!
