A good pot roast is a staple of many families and definitely one of ours. Households across America have their own recipes that has been passed down from generation to generation. It’s the meal that warms our bellies and also our souls. It the center of where we gather for great conversations and to spend quality time with the ones we love. In this recipe I share my take on the pot roast but add my ow twist to it. This recipe is done with a Dutch oven in an open fire.
- Roast 3 – 4 lb.
- Favorite potatoes (I like the smaller mixer potatoes that come in a bag)
- Lipton onion soup mix
- Beef broth
- Salt and pepper roast and sear each side for two minutes with olive oil or butter.
- Transfer to Dutch oven and add beef broth until it reaches half way up the roast
- Add potatoes and carrots (as many as you would like)
- Add one packet of onion soup mix
- Place Dutch oven in a bed of coals or next to the fire for at least 3 hours. The longer you go the better the roast will turn out. 6-8 hours would be ideal. (Don’t have a fire pit? Place the Dutch oven in your oven at 300* F for the same amount of time. This entire recipe can be done in a crock pot on low.)
