“This pot roast recipe and technique could not be easier. The vegetables break down, combining with the meat's juices to create a sauce! Warm, hearty, and delicious! Serve over horseradish mashed potatoes.” - by Chef John
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
- Pour vegetable oil into a large oven-safe pot over medium-high heat. Season the chuck roast with salt and black pepper. Brown the meat on both sides in the hot oil, and transfer to a plate.
- Stir carrots, celery, and onion into the pot, and cook and stir until vegetables start to release their juices, about 3 minutes; loosen any brown flavor bits on the bottom of the pot. Add butter, and cook until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Then sprinkle in rosemary, stir the vegetables, and return the roast to the pot. Cover the pot with a lid.
- Roast in the preheated oven until the chuck roast is tender, about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Season vegetables with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.

"Excellent! A crock pot pot roast afficiando, this was my first attempt at an actual oven baked pot roast. I'm used to using quite a bit of liquid, so I wasn't too sure about this. Delicious!!!! I ..." See moremade a couple of minor adjustments...seasoned the meat with seasoning salt and Monterey Steak for flavor. Added sweet potato chunks and whole "new potatoes" to the veggies. (I had a 2 lb roast so there was plenty of room). Threw two whole cloves of garlic on top of the meat. The veggies melted together into the most sensational "mush", it was heavenly....the meat was juicy and tender. Definately deserves 5 stars!"
"This was simple and full of flavor. I didn't need any beef stock and the meat was just melt in your mouth! I have been looking for a good pot roast recipe for many, many years. Thank you soo much!!..." See more Looks like I found it!"
"So easy to make! I wasn't good at following the recipe as i added too much rosemary. I also couldn't figure out the meat as i am in New Zealand and we use different names but i used a cheapish meat...." See more I don't think i could say it has heaps of flavour but a nice easy dish. I had it reheated the next day and i think it tasted even better! I had the leftovers with horseraddish and gravy which was lovely. I'm also going to make yorkshire puddings which i think will go well with this. I will deffinetly make this again, maybe with less rosemary! Loved being able to watch the video too, your drawings were awesome! :-) Thanks"
