Directions

  1. Combine 1/3 cup flour, salt, and pepper; coat meat evenly.
  2. Melt Crisco in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Brown meat well on all sides. Add 2 cups water and bay leaf. Cover and simmer for 2 hours; do not boil. If needed, add water during cooking.
  3. Peel onions and pare potatoes, carrots, and turnips.
  4. When meat has simmered for 2 hours, add vegetables to Dutch oven. Cover and simmer for 1 hour or until meat and vegetables are tender.
  5. Remove meat and vegetables and arrange on a heated platter; keep warm. Strain liquid and add water, if necessary, to make 1-1/2 cups liquid. Return to Dutch oven.
  6. Blend 1/2 cup cold water and 1/4 cup flour until smooth. Slowly stir into pot roast liquid. Cook and stir until gravy thickens and comes to boiling. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Serve with meat.

A good basic pot roast recipe... liked the addition of turnips. Made in crock pot, 6 hrs on low setting.

Meat turns out excellent! The only problem I had was the potatoes that didn't really cook well after an hour of simmering. I would recommend you add potatoes earlier OR turn heat to medium for 15-20 minutes when you add potatoes. You do not wish to boil bell peppers though as they will become way too soft, so add peppers in the last 30 minutes.

I must admit, I used Clarified butter rather than Crisco, but otherwise pretty much followed the recipe. It turned out very well. It was nice to find a recipe that didn't call for canned soup.
