American Beef Pot Roast with Root Veggies Recipe

American Beef Pot Roast with Root Veggies

Serves 6

A welcome comfort food, soothing pot roast is a cool-weather dinner favorite. Our chuck roasts are perfect for slow-cooking to mouthwatering tenderness.


  • 1 2-1/2 to 3 lbs boneless chuck roast
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) beef broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp dried thyme leaves, crushed
  • 1 lb small red potatoes, cut in half
  • 1 lb carrots, peeled, cut diagonally into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour, dissolved in 1/4 cup cold water
  • parsley, chopped (optional)


  1. Dry pot roast with paper towels. Mix salt and pepper together and season both sides of roast.
  2. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or large, heavy pot. Brown pot roast in the hot oil on all sides.
  3. Add beef broth, garlic, and thyme to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover tightly and simmer for 2-1/4 hours.
  4. Add vegetables and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and continue simmering, covered, 25 to 30 minutes or until roast and vegetables are fork-tender.
  5. Remove roast and vegetables to a warm platter and cover with foil. Skim fat from cooking liquid if desired. Measure cooking liquid and return 1-1/2 cups to stockpot. Whisk in flour mixture. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, whisking continually until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  6. Carve the pot roast into thin slices and return to warm platter surrounded by the vegetables. Garnish with chopped parsley. Serve with the pot gravy.
