Beef Roast Pot recipe


Roasting in the pot - saute crumbly beef, juicy vegetables full of flavor and mashed potatoes in a rich sauce. It's mouth-watering, but easy to make, especially if you're using a slow cooker. However, this pot roast recipe can be made in the Instant Pot, oven, or crock pot - choose the method that works best for you!

Confession: I haven't been a fan of roasting for most of my life. I just didn't get it - the beef and vegetables were fine, but they're usually cooked in liquids that don't thicken in any way, so the end result is like a watery broth.

Lots of flavor in it, but when you pour it over beef and vegetables, it doesn't cling to it at all because it's watery.

So I decided to change it up and thicken the sauce using a touch of flour. So it's more like meat sauce. Now that's a worthy companionship, in my humble opinion!!!

If you love delicious, slow-cooked roast beef and a deeply flavored broth, then this roasting recipe is for you!
