Growing up, this was one of those recipes I looked forward to Mom making!
The house smelled wonderful and I knew we were always in for a treat.
Why don't you pull up a pot and give it a whirl?!?!
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 2 hours 30 minutes
3 1/2 - 4 lb. beef roast
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp oil
1 cup water
1 Bay leaf
8-10 small, whole onions
8 small carrots, cut in half
16 oz. tomato sauce with tomato bits
1) Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. Brown in hot oil in Dutch oven.
2) Add 1/2 cup water and bay leaf. Simmer 1 1/2 hours or until meat is tender; remove fat.
3) Add vegetables and rest of water; pour on tomato sauce. Simmer, covered, 1 hour.
Note: I use a jar of pearl onions and sometimes add small new or red potatoes and celery with carrots. If I don't use potatoes, I will serve pot roast with mashed potatoes and a cucumber and onion salad.
