 When you’re making something you saw in a magazine and you need something from a store, like Michael’s or Home Depot, etc. take a picture with you to show the salesperson what you’re looking for. It’ll be a lot easier for them to help you.  It happened to me recently.  I didn’t follow this advice and I had a hard time describing the item I was looking for!!)
Way back “when”, the standard Sunday meal usually featured a good old fashioned pot roast. When you came home from church the aroma of the roast cooking in the oven far surpassed any Yankee Candle aroma!!! And you were starving!!! With all the turkey and dressing you’ve just had we thought this month it would be nice to have my mother’s (and Emery’s mother’s) 
Sunday Dinner Roast Beef! 
Bon Appetit!

Sunday Dinner Roast Beef

This roast can be cooked in a crockpot,

 but in the oven is the preferred way.


2½ to 3 lb. boneless chuck roast

Salt & black pepper

All-purpose flour

2 Tbsp. cooking oil (olive oil, if you have it)

1 whole sweet Vidalia onion, chopped

2 cloves minced garlic

2 bay leaves

3 or 4 carrots, cut in serving size chunks

3 or 4 Russet potatoes, peeled and cut into serving size pieces

Optional: 18-oz. jar Heinz Homestyle Gravy, Savory Beef (this is in lieu of making your own)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Sprinkle salt and black pepper all over one side of the meat, rubbing it in with your hands. Then lightly sprinkle flour on meat, rubbing it in. Turn the meat over and repeat. Heat the oil in the Dutch Oven on medium heat and brown the meat, searing it well for about 3 minutes (watch, do not burn meat) turn the meat over and repeat. Remove the meat from the pan and add the onion pieces, garlic, a little salt & black pepper and 1 of the bay leaves. Place the meat on top of that mixture, put the other bay leaf on top of the meat, cover and place in the preheated oven. This is important: after about one hour. place the carrots and potato pieces in pan and turn the roast over, placing it on top of the vegetables. Put back in the oven for about 2 more hours until roast and the vegetables are fork tender. Total cooking time is about 3 hours. Serve with the Heinz gravy if desired. Or thicken some of the juice with a little cornstarch and beef broth to make your own.

Note: If you decide to do this roast in a crockpot: After browning the meat, cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours.
