"A perfect Autumn pot roast! My mom made this recipe for our family when I was a little girl. We all loved it and now I make it for my husband who loves it just the same. If you want carrots with the pot roast, add them to the pot for the last 30 minutes of cooking. "

  1. Mix together salt and flour, and rub mixture into the meat. In a Dutch oven, cook garlic in butter over medium heat. Place meat into pan, and brown on all sides. Remove beef from pan.
  2. Arrange sliced onions in the bottom of the Dutch oven, and then place the meat on top of the onions. Season with peppercorns, allspice, horseradish, and bay leaf. Pour in rum. Cover, and simmer over medium-low heat until tender, about 3 to 4 hours. A good pot roast will supply most of its own juices, but as it cooks pour 1/2 cup water over it to make an ample supply of gravy.
  3. Transfer roast to a platter. Stir gravy until smooth, and pour over roast.

I followed this recipe almost exactly and it was tasty. The allspice, rum, and horseradish gave it a unique deliciousness. I normally make pot roast in my crock pot, so this was the first time...

This recipe worked very well for me -- I needed a pot roast and I didn't have time for the Crock Pot. While I agree that it didn't taste near as strong as it smelled, if you make a gravy from th...

Really special and different than the pot roast from my childhood. The allspice berries and horseradish were great additions. I used brandy instead of rum. My daughter, who is not a beef fan,...

I served this for Christmas dinner, and everyone loved it. It got raves from the youngest after the first bite.

Love how the reviewer down below rates this recipe negatively because she didn't like the review I left on one of her recipes.

Honestly, I have NO clue what all the fuss is about? This beef was okay but surely nothing to rave about. It was moist but the flavoring wasn't doing it for us. Pot Roast it isn't. It has an odd...

We found the recipe as it is written a bit bland. The roast came out tender and the rum and allspice added a unique flavor, but it just was not happening for us. We doctored up the gravy with br...
